Why Kenyans are upset with James Macharia’s retention in the cabinet
The retention of James Macharia as cabinet secretary for Transport has angered Kenyans online.
The CS was among the six who President Uhuru retained in part of his cabinet that he announced on Friday.
But Kenyans on Twitter termed the CS as a failure, citing the increased road carnage witnessed in the month of December 2017.
While others also cited his performance when he was the CS for Health, a period that was punctuated by strikes by medical practitioners, some urged the President to fire him.

James Macharia didn’t deserve a spot on the cabinet, at least not CS Transport.
For her cleansing power and powerful prayers, Uhuru Kenyatta should have appointed Rachel Ruto as CS Transport. pic.twitter.com/15P7VPVBtq

Keriako messes as the DPP, gets nominated for CS. James Macharia oversees deaths on our roads, he gets retained. Kenya rewards stupidity!

Of the 6 retained Cabinet Secretaries; James Macharia is the odd one out… The guy is such a moribund.. placing him next to Dr. Matiang’i and Balala is an insult to their dedication.. cc. @WilliamsRuto@UKenyatta
