Monday April 1, 2019-President Uhuru Kenyatta is reportedly planning to nominate controversial Kenya singer Ester Akoth alias Akothee as Sport and Culture Cabinet Secretary.
According to State House sources, Uhuru has even instructed the National Intelligence Service (NIS) to dig into Akothee‘s academic credentials and see whether she is fit to serve as CS.
Uhuru is said to have been impressed by Akothee’s last week gesture where she distributed assorted foodstuffs worth millions of shillings to hunger stricken families in Turkana and West Pokot counties.
A State House source, who requested anonymity, said President Uhuru Kenyatta wants changes in his Cabinet to bring new blood and offload some CSs indicted in various corruption charges.
Akothee’s inclusion in the Cabinet would be interesting given she was recently at logger heads with Kenya Film and Classification Board (KFCB) chairman, Ezekiel Mutua.
Mutua criticized Akothee after an explicit dance where she openly showed her “volcano” to her audience when she entertained them in Mtwapa.
