Kenya's new Dream Team

We have just received the final list of the Kenya's new-look Cabinet, and I must say here at Siasa Duni we're quite impressed at first glance...


1. President - Emillio Mwai wa Kibaki

2. Prime Minister - Eng. Raila Amollo Odinga

3. Vice President - Kalonzo Musyoka

4. Deputy Prime Minister And Minister For Finance -Musalia Mudavadi

5. Deputy Prime Minister And Minister For Internal Security - Kiraitu Murungi

6. Minister For Planning - Amos Kimunya

7. Minister For Justice And Human Rights - James Orengo

8. Minister For Constitutional Affairs - Martha Karua

9. Minister For Roads And Public Works - William Ruto

10. Minister For Co-operative Development - Sam Ongeri

11. Minister For Education for Higher Education - Anyang Nyong'o

12. Minister For Education for Basic Education - John Munyes

13. Minister For Housing - Kabando Wa Kabando

14. Minister For Foreign Affairs - Moses Wetangula

15. Minister For Science And Technology - George Saitoti

16. Minister For Defence - Joseph Nkaisery

17. Minister For Special Programmes - Naomi Shaaban

18. Minister For Local Government - Uhuru Kenyatta

19. Minister For Environment and Natural Resources - Henry Kosgey

20. Minister For Communication, Information And Broadcasting - Joseph Nyagah

21. Minister For Water And Irrigation - Omingo Magara

22. Minister For Livestock - Samuel Poghisio

23. Minister For Trade - Soita Shitanda

24. Minister For Fisheries - Dalmas Otieno

25. Minister For Youth Affairs - Danson Mungatana

26. Minister For Gender Affairs - Mohammed Kuti

27. Minister For Sports - Musa Sirma

28. Minister For Agriculture - Bonny Khalwale

29. Minister For Energy-Mwangi Kiunjuri

30. Minister For Health - Charity Ngilu

31. Minister For Lands-Noah Wekesa

32. Minister For Home Affairs - Chris Okemo

33. Minister For Transport - Chirau Mwakwere

34. Minister For Regional Development - Wilfred Machage

35. Minister For Home Affairs - Najib Balala

36. Minister For Labour - Alfred Khangati

37. Minister For East African Community - Mutula Kilonzo

38. Minister For Public Service - Sally Kosgey

39. Attorney General - Amos Wako

40. Head Of Public Prosecutions - Paul Muite

41. Secretary To The Cabinet And Head Of Civil Service - Prof. Wangari Maathai

Now we all know why Amb. Francis Muthaura was beating his gums last week; he must have got wind of his impending doom, and was exhibiting the kicks of a dying horse. Moving swiftly onwards, this list looks pretty impressive at first glance. But a close look reveals the culprits we would rather do without, chief among them Kiraitu "You can't rape a willing woman" Muringi, Chirau "I was looking for your mother on Koinange Street" Mwakwere and Amos "Smiling" Wako.

We welcome, however, the inclusion of some fresh faces: James Orengo, Mutula Kilonzo, Sally Kosgey and newcomer Alfred Khangati. All in all, I think the job fits the man... in some cases, the woman. Sasa kazi ianze!

i am especially happy 4 Ms Ngilu---she promised that she will be back in Afya House.

Maathai will do a rigorous job.

Sally Kosgey in familiar ground.

How come Home Affairs has 2 Ministers?

All in all good combination. Kazi IANZE.

how is that a dream team? thats an old boys clique. A country the size of Texas requires 38 ministries. What kind of nonsense is this. Cut it down to 15, 2 from each province. and tell Kenyans that the government positions are not tribal positions but rather national positions. Have the 15 ministries put in the constitution and make it require 2/3 to change it, and let work be performed. Now what is a Minister for Fisheries doing everyday at work? observing fish? and a Minister for Livestock? watching cows? Get a whole Agriculture department and give it to one clown
