Congratulations to Hon. Ababu Namwamba, Katoo Ole Metito and Paul Otuoma for their appointment as Ministers for Youth & Sports, Internal Security and Local Government, respectfully.
President Kibaki must be commended, too, for appointing a non-controversial or partisan hack to the all-important security docket.
Ditto for Raila in making sure MM is even more irrelevant politically speaking.
While no one can seriously think or argue that any of these ministers, except for Metito, will accomplish anything of substance before their terms expire in March, the appointments are clearly politically significant in that both principals are maximizing the power of incumbency to their political goals and objectives.
