|Governor Dr. Evans Kidero|
Nairobi Governor; Dr. Evans Kidero has unveiled his Ten Member Cabinet comprising of highly qualified personnel with proven integrity.
Notably, He brought back former Town Clerk John Gakuo into his Cabinet. More notably, he appointed Anne Lokidor, to head the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock Development and Fisheries.
Going by reactions of Kenyans on Social Media, it seems that the two nominees have raised some sort of eyebrows. ‘ Mr. Gakuo viewed for the same Governor’s seat and lost…why bring him back when there are thousands of deserving and even more qualified Nairobians on the City Streets?..Wonders one Thomas Jumano.
However, in a quick rejoinder, Gakuo seems to gather support from some sources if the observations of one Ken and Christos are anything to go with: ‘Thank you for considering John Gakuo to feature in your cabinet. Gakuo did a lot for Nairobi. Kidero should continue joining hands with whoever is willing to transform our beloved city’ ……. Ken. ‘It is John Gakuo who transformed Nairobi City to the Current Greener City we all enjoy. All the beautiful trees within Central Business District exist because of Gakuo’…… Christos.
Some Kenyans have questioned the suitability of Anne Lokidor’s credentials to her designated position. She holds a masters degree from University of Nairobi and a Bachelor of Science from the same Institution. She has several years of experience in Sales and Marketing, having worked at Sera Software East Africa and National Cereals and Produce Board. It is her credentials visa viz the role expectations that have raised a storm; similar to the Cabinet Secretary nominee of Health in the Uhuru’s Cabinet.
Did Dr.Kidero honestly balance and presented the real face of Kenya? Has he initiated ‘a bigger political journey’ and thus laying the groundwork? Is He really going to implement the Jubilee Agenda or He is focused on the CORD Agenda. Will he really deliver on his election promises? …..The list of questions will always be endless. However, Nairobians are keenly watching how their Governor is set to tackle his election promises.
Work has to be done. Whether Kidero’s list is a blunder or a strategy, Nairobians are keenly watching and following. Decision Times Kenya wishes to congratulate Dr. Kidero on Unveiling his team and wishes all of the best. Nairobi is patiently in wait.
