Kenya's poorly kept secret is in the streets. A draft of the bloated coalition cabinet is in our hands. Changes may be made but we expect this to be retained to a large extent in the newlook club of men in a country where women make up 52% of the population. And the biggest casualties: women and the youth. In a cabinet that is meant to appease the aggrieved ODM and the thieving PNU, bandit president Kibaki is expected to announce the coalition cabinet once parliament rubber-stamps the peace and reconciliation accord that was penned between him and Raila. Parliament is currently going through the ritual of giving it a nod. Mr Kibaki is personally in attendance to ensure that the new lease of life that he bought by disappointing his stony brigade in PNU does not fall flat on its face.
The movers and shakers are therein and notably William Ruto is set to land the coveted and contract-rich ministry of Roads & Public Works currently held by Kimendeero John the-rattlesnake-Me-Chuki. Michuki is set to retire from the cabinet and assume the role of an untouchable power-broker. We suspect he hates to be curtailed by the legal and constitutional requirement to report to the peoples' president Raila Odinga whose new stature is sure to eclipse the hands-off, feet-off, eyes-off style (or lack) for which bandit president Kibaki is known.
