Kenyans online a re-sharing a recommendation made to President Uhuru Kenyatta by one user to fire his incompetent appointees.
A tweep wondered why the president has never fired any cabinet secretary in the past for messing up things.
The tweep, who goes by the name Julius Mmasi, cited the cases of former Sports Cabinet Secretary, who is Kenya’s Ambassador to Austria, Cabinet Secretary for Health, Sicily Kariuki, and Cabinet Secretary for Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Mwangi Kiunjuri.
The tweep lamented how the Cabinet Secretaries got away with a mere slap on the wrist for bungling government affairs.

I wonder why @UKenyatta never sacks his Cabinet Members who mess up!
Sicily Kariuki messed up NYS transferred to MOH
Hassan Wario Messed up Sports Ministry appointed Ambassador
KIUNJURI messed up Devolution transferred to Agriculture Ministry
Just to name a few!
