Former National Assembly speaker Farah Maalim has reacted to the reorganisation of the cabinet by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Writing on Twitter on Tuesday in a reply to a Citizen Television story on the cabinet reorganisation, the former speaker said that his trust in the sincerity of the head of state's war on corruption had been revived.
He called for the Judiciary to be revamped and constitutional amendments to be pursued to ensure that the graft menace is dealt with going forward.
"Up until today I hadn't trusted Uhuru in the fight against corruption and had seen his zeal as a PR gimmick. I now concur with the need to reform the judiciary to help the Executive in slaying the corruption Dragon. We need amendments to the constitution to make it robust & effective, " the former speaker said.
The head of state announced a number of changes in his cabinet team that will help him achieve his Big Four Agenda and consolidate his legacy.
Uhuru is in his second and final term and is widely expected to hand over power in 2022 after the general elections.
The firing of Agriculture cabinet secretary has come as a shocker to Kenyans and is seen as the president's answer to what many saw as the CS politicking.
