The President has shown that he does not care about the rule of law, especially regarding two-thirds gender representation.These are key appointments and there is no shortage of women.For him to refuse to even give the basic minimum is sending a very clear message to Kenyans that the rule of law is not priority.
Where he has appointed Cabinet administrative secretaries, the procedure in law - Article 132(4)A says that the Public service commission can make a recommendation and before doing so, give the rationale for it. Thus, there is a procedure and process how it should have been done.
By failing to follow the Constitution,Uhuru loses the moral ground to say anything about anybody else going against the law because he is leading in flouting it. Gender rules require nine women.
On regional balance, the seats have gone to Gema and the Kalenjin with the rest having been given a seat each.The President himself is a symbol of national unity and if we are talking in terms of power, authority and representation, the Kikuyu are represented by him being the President and likewise the Kalenjin are well represented by virtue of Ruto being the DP.
The Cabinet should bear greater competence and so the President has tried to accommodate all political rejects by sending some to foreign embassies.These positions are not about giving people jobs; they go to represent us in foreign lands and should give Kenya comparative advantage in those places, so it is about trade, diplomacy, negotiations, and not throwing people all over the place.
