Moments after President Uhuru Kenyatta reshuffled the cabinet, Kenyans have gone full out with their comments – some congratulating the newbies, others not having very kind words.
Among the new appointees is a man we know only too well: Major (Rtd) Gordon Kihalangwa. It is interesting to note that the retired military man has been sent back to his roots – Ministry of Defence.
As expected, Netizens’ reactions to Kihalangwa’s appointment as Principal Secretary were richer than my grandmother’s stew. Here is a section of comments from users on Twitter:
With this appointment Gordon Kihalangwa is being prepared to take over the Ministry of Defence eventually. pic.twitter.com/pH7XmkyVUU

I wish you all the best for you future and a new job “Gordon Kihalangwa” and “Ukur Yattani” The president, the DCI and the DPP are doing a good job. Corruption can completely destroy government structures, capacity and its killing our country.

Good decision by President Uhuru Kenyatta to appoint Ukur Yatani as Rotich’s replacement. Gordon Kihalangwa’s transfer to DoD is good news for Miguna Miguna. He was headache at Immigration with his military behavior! We expect the likes of Kiunjuri to fall soon #cabinetreshuffle pic.twitter.com/tLFqMD6APe
