Failed Leadership

Something is clearly wrong with our leaders. First, they plunge contemporary Kenya into the worst crisis it has faced with their never ending battle for power. Now they are convincing us that they should have 44 out of the current 220 ministers. That makes 20% of the government’s National Assembly. Just how much do we need ministers? We have operated with only 17 in the last 3 months noone even noticed! The only people required to run ministries are the Permanent Secretaries. Ministries should, in fact, be consolidated not split.
