Saturday August 24, 2019-Renowned columnist and a scholar, Prof Makau Mutua on Friday weighed in on the realignment of ministries by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
In the realignment, Uhuru moved Presidential Delivery Unit (PDU) to Fred Matiangi’s Interior Ministry.
The PDU, as well as the Directorate of National Cohesion and Values, were under the Executive Office of the President.
Now according to Makau Mutua, Uhuru added Matiangi more powers and he is now the defacto Prime Minister.
“Let’s just call @FredMatiangi Mr Prime Minister henceforth," Mutua wrote on his Twitter page.
He also lambasted Deputy President William Ruto saying he is now a lame duck DP who has no powers.
Mutua, who once hinted on vying for the presidency, is a great critic of the Jubilee regime.
He is also a close confidante of National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga.
