The intrigues behind the naming of Uhuru’s cabinet

What happened before Uhuru named his cabinet

Minutes before the Friday announcement, the president retreated to his office and settled down to business, operating in secrecy.

Shortly afterwards, he emerged with a handwritten speech that he had made himself to address the press.

No one was privy to the details of the contents of his speech except his deputy who had been at State House to help in finalizing the list.

His communication team was caught by surprise and were left clueless and anxiously waiting to hear what he had for the nation.

Under normal circumstances, the president’s communication team releases a typed speech to the press shortly after the president is done giving his speech.

However, this time round the president’s communications team had nothing ready to offer and had to transcribe video footage from KBC.

The Friday announcement of Cabinet Secretaries nominees marked the end of intense lobbying by a section of politicians and influential persons.
