President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday morning called for an urgent cabinet meeting at State House.

According to the Star, all cabinet secretaries were to hold a meeting virtually but were last evening told to show up for a meeting at the house on the hill.

It is said that top on the agenda is politicking ministers.

Last week, Environment CS Keriako Tobiko was caught on tape referring to Deputy President William Ruto as a “clerk” in the Jubilee government.

DP allies led by Elgeyo Marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen told off the CS and demanded that he respects the second in command.

There is also pressure for the head of state to address the nation as is norm between the months of March and May.

The president is supposed to address a joint sitting of the Houses every once a year as is prescribed by law.

According to Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungw’a, the president should outline his economic recovery plan, now that the COVID-19 pandemic has slowed down.

“We are eager to listen and hear what President Kenyatta has in terms of realigning his agenda and priority of the nation in line with ensuring sustainable development and economic recovery,” Ichung’wa said.

But according to National Assembly speaker Justin Muturi, talks are in top gear to have the address.

“It is a matter we have been discussing since the outbreak (of Covid-19). There is consultation between the leadership of the two Houses on how that will happen,” he said.
