Uhuru converts Echesa’s ‘side hustle’ into a full time job

Former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa has been fired, but he seems to have gotten a new full time job. Echesa, who is a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto was having a hard time of campaigning for his boss due to his profile, but now, he is free!

He was fired on Friday morning in President Kenyatta’s latest cabinet reshuffle. His docket was then handed over to ambassador Amina Mohamed, who has left Education Ministry for Prof George Magoha.

Law bars Cabinet Secretaries from campaigning for specific political leaders. But it is support for Ruto that had earned Echesa his job at the Sports ministry.

While in the ministry, he might not have been able to champion for Ruto’s 2022 bid. The fired CS will now have to engage in many Tanga Tanga missions across the country, championing for the election of Ruto as President. Do you think this will earn him another state docket should Ruto win presidency in 2022?
