Kenya: Ego Battles Hamper Uhuru's Delivery Unit - Reports

Internal dissent within the Presidential Delivery Unit, the agency tasked with overseeing the Big Four Agenda, now threatens to scuttle President Uhuru Kenyatta's legacy projects.

Reports indicate that newcomers in the unit have stirred a clash of egos.

A frustrated director at the unit is reported to have sought the help of the president's Chief of Staff Nzioka Waita to manage the chaos in the unit.

PDU includes former journalists Laban Cliff Onserio, Mumbi Warui and Nixon Ng'ang'a. Others are former MPs Silvanus Onyango and Boniface Kinoti and a former political aspirant Michael Rotich.

Some of the new recruits are reportedly at logger heads with the four sector directors.

The unit was officially installed in October to follow up on President Kenyatta's legacy projects.

The team is tasked with following up with county commissioners on national government projects and implementation of the Big Four agenda.
