Raila And Ruto's MPs Team Up To Secretly Pass This Bill As Panic Rocks The Next Cabinet

A bill to allow Cabinet Secretaries appointees to be drawn from Parliament has been approved without any changes. The Constitutional Implementation Oversight Committee (CIOC) chaired by Ndaragwa Member of Parliament Jeremiah Kioni approved it following Speaker Justin Muturi's ruling that no amendments can be proposed to a Bill seeking to amend the Constitution.

The Bill proposes that Cabinet Secretaries be picked from Members of Parliaments and not as is today where they are drawn from technocrats. The Bill also seeks to allow the president to assign the Attorney General duties of a Cabinet Secretary.

This may be seen as a blow to some of the Cabinet Secretaries like Interior CS Fred Matiang'i who recently while speaking in Kisii during a launch of a project revealed his plans to stay in government beyond 2022.

According to Matiang'i it is President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga who will chant his future after 2022 politics.
