Exclusive: Why AMB Amina Mohammed Was Fired

Most did not see it coming. A decent section of Kenyans thought and believed that Foreign Affairs CS, Amina Mohammed would retain her ministry after her previous mandate.
When President Uhuru Kenyatta made public the names of the citizens who would serve in the Cabinet in his second term, Ms. Mohammed (known to be close to the president), did not feature.

Earlier last year, news outlets reported that the President spent extensive resources to campaign for the Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary in the race for the position of the African Union Commission chairperson.
The elections were held on Monday, January 30, at the AU headquarters in Ethiopia and Ms. Amina lost.
The Kenyan government is said to have spent a jaw-dropping amount of money in the campaign for Amina across the continent but this did not yield any fruit.

The President's administration had even set up a cabinet sub-committee (5 CS's) to ensure CS Amina Mohamed's victory.
Kenya has continuously sought to play a key role in Africa's politics and a win in the election would have seen the country's interests catered for.
According to Radio Citizen, the said low budget was about KSh 1 billion.
Chad's foreign minister Moussa Faki Mahamat won the election and sources say that the government will opt for another diplomat to take over the Foreign Ministry and aggressively build the country's portfolio.
Fortunately, Ms. Mohammed will be reassigned to other key roles away from the limelight.

The President announced that he will retain six Cabinet Secretaries in his second term. Fred Matiangi (now CS of Interior/acting CS in the Education docket,) Henry Rotich (Treasury) and Najib Balala (Tourism) retained their posts.

Charles Keter (Energy), Joe Mucheru (ICT) and  James Macharia (Transport) retained their dockets in the new appointments and the president will announce the rest in due course.
