Waititu reshuffles Cabinet, includes Thang’wa into new lineup.

 The new Kiambu Youth affairs, Sports and Communication CEC Karungo wa Thangw’a shares a light moment with Governor Ferdinand Waititu.

Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu has made changes into his government with some reshuffle of his cabinet barely nine months after the county executives were sworn in.

The changes have seen some of the departments transferred to other ministries with others being amalgamated to form a bigger ministry.

Livestock, fisheries, veterinary services and agriculture, irrigation and marketing dockets have been merged to form The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation to be headed by Joseph Mwangi. 

Mary Kamau, who headed the Livestock, Fisheries and Veterinary Services Ministry, is the new CEC for Roads, Transport and Public Works. This ministry was previously being held by David Kuria in an acting capacity after the former Roads CEC John Mugwe was sacked by the governor in May this year.

Kuria has retained his Water, Environment, Energy and Natural Resources docket. 

Paul Karungo Wa Thang’wa, who is the latest entrant into Waititu’s government, will be in charge of the newly created Youth Affairs, Sports and Communication. This docket was split from the Education, Gender, Cultural, Social Services, which is headed by Dr. Kang’ethe Ng'ang'a. 

Thang’wa has been a radio presenter at Gukena FM, a kikuyu radio station owned by Radio Africa Group. He was also Ngewa Ward MCA in the previous administration and a fierce critic of the former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo whom he accused of running Kiambu as a family business.

While making these changes, Waititu warned his ministers against laxity and non-performance. He also directed Thang’wa to develop viable programmes that will benefit the Kiambu youth.

“I will not hesitate to sack anyone of you if you fail to deliver as per my expectations,” Waititu warned.
