Trannsport Minister Chirau Ali Makwere has lost his parliamentary seat after the High Court in Mombasa nullified his election. Now its not every day that a minister loses his parliamentary seat, and i necessarily wouldn’t care too much but on this one im very happy.
Why? Coz if there has been one ministry that was going places before he took up office it was the Transport ministry under no nonsense Minister Michuki. Known as a tough operator, Michuki and his then PS were able to reign in the terror matatu industry and reform it something every Kenyan knew was impossible. There was a minister who talked then walked the talk.
Enter Chirau Ali Makwere, who i would say has been one of the most un-effective ministers ever…i mean how hard was it to uphold the standards after the hard job had already been done. Now not to do the job is one thing, not to do your job and justify it entirely another. Im not fit to pass judgement of Chirau’s ability as an MP, but as the Minister of Transport he has failed, and failed big time.
Maybe this is the perfect time for the 2 principals to reshuffle ministers and bring back Michuki to the transport ministry. Please for the sake of us Kenyans.
