President Uhuru Kenyatta surprised many when he picked Ukur Yattani as the acting Treasury Cabinet Secretary to replace embattled Henry Rotich who is fighting for his life in the multi-billion Arror and Kimwarer Dams Scandal.

He is the current CS of Labour and Social Protection and a former governor of Marsabit County. His appointment has been termed as both political and administrative card from the president. But there is more to why Uhuru chose this man.


President Uhuru has reshuffled his cabinet thrice since his re-election. In the latest reshuffle, he appointed Amb. Ukur Yattani as acting Treasury CS to replace Henry Rotich who is battling graft charges.
Kenyans feel that the divided, dysfunctional and corrupt Cabinet has failed Uhuru’s strategic war on corruption as well as his Big 4 Agenda.
