One Response to Cabinet Reshuffle Reveals Kibaki's Succession Preference

Tom Ochieng -USA- said...

Since Kenya is not a monarchy, the reshuffling of ministers by the president to prepare a successor after he leaves office brings to question his commitment to the new constitution! Kenyans alone will decide who leads them at the poll Some people who have been in politics most of their lives think that they are entitled to lead this country. I plea to all Kenyans to reject these career politicians. Think of what they will do to the newly discovered oil well? These are greedy corrupt leaders that doesn't deserve your votes. It is time for fresh leadership in Kenya. "You can't put new wine in old wine skin" God bless Kenya ....Amen!
