Three Powerful Men Who Advice President Uhuru Kenyatta, Specific Roles They Play

For a smooth running of the country, every President must have his right hand men with specific roles assigned to them.

if you vividly recall, the late President Daniel Arap moi had Nicholas Biwott as his closest advisor. Former President Mwai Kibaki had Francis Muthaura, Prof Nick Wanjohi and Matere Keriri who ensured smooth running of his government.

Just like his predecessors, President Uhuru Kenyatta too has his own right hand men that he has entrusted with different roles. They include,

1) Joseph Kinyua

President Uhuru with Joseph Kinywa left.

For the lack of better words let's call him the 'favored one' because he has all the ‘President’s trust’.

According to reliable sources all the cabinet secretaries have to pass through him first before they can approach the President.

Kinyua has worked hand in hand with Uhuru since he was the Finance Minister of the republic of Kenya.

2) Philip Kameru

Even though he is only known by a few, he plays an integral role in Uhuru's government.

His role is to deliver daily intelligence briefs to the first in command and give necessary recommendations.
