Will Kenyatta Shuffle Cabinet Amidst Graft Purge?

Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich and his Principal Secretary Kamau Thugge have been released on bail after denying charges relating to the multibillion-shilling scandal in the construction of the Arror and Kimwarer dams. Speculation on who President Uhuru Kenyatta will pick to replace them as the case begins is also rising. If Kenyatta sticks to the promise that he made in his last State of the Nation address that he would let go of any government officials charged with corruption, then he will this week be accepting the resignation of both Rotich and Thugge, alongside over two dozen others.
