Punguza mzingo! CS FRED MATIANGI and others may lose jobs as MP kicks off plan to sack them - Writes to Assembly Speaker JUSTIN MUTURI

Thursday October 4, 2018 - A Member of Parliament has launched a bid to reduce the number of Cabinet slots from the current 22 to 14.

West Mugirango MP, Vincent Kemosi, who has already written to the Speaker of the National Assembly, Justin Muturi, notifying him of his intention to sponsor a Constitutional Amendment Bill, also wants CSs to be picked by the National Assembly in the proposed amendments.

The MP wants to amend Article 152(1) which states that Cabinet Secretaries will not be fewer than 14 and not more than 22, and Article 152 (3), which states that a Cabinet Secretary shall not be a Member of Parliament.

"The objective of the Bill is to reduce the bloated wage bill and ensure MPs have an opportunity to ask Cabinet Ministers in the House questions and issues affecting their constituencies," Kemosi's letter read in part.

"The name Cabinet Secretaries be changed to Cabinet Ministers, and where all Articles of the Constitution where there is a mention of Cabinet Secretary or Secretaries, the same be amended to refer to Cabinet Minister.”

“Create a provision of a hybrid system of governance, where MPs will be appointed Ministers," he added.

If adopted, we may lose many CS as we will only need 14 of them.
