New CSs lack independence of mind, says senator Orengo

By: JOHN KAMAU

Siaya Senator James Orengo has dismissed the Cabinet reshuffle by President Uhuru Kenyatta, terming it “a game of musical chairs”.

Speaking at Visa Oshwal Community in Thika on Saturday, he said the reshuffle may not bring any change because the new CSs lack independence of mind.

Orengo attended the memorial service for seven members of the Shah family.

He said only the President and deputy president can speak their minds, “the rest are just watu wa mkono”.

“Though we don’t expect much to change, let’s all give them time to deliver and afterwards we can criticise them. It’s our hope the reshuffle will curtail rampant corruption in government,” the senator said.
