The President has abolished the Presidency eliminating the autonomy of the office of the Deputy President. The Deputy President now works directly under President Uhuru. The Executive Order released today now appears to take away the independence of the DP relieving him of the powers to hire or fire which will now fall under the Head of Public Service.
This comes in the wake of purges that started at the Senate and moved swiftly to the National Assembly, which ended up eliminating those believed to be allied to the Deputy President. The DP has not been in good terms with his boss since President Uhuru’s handshake with ODM boss Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga. Pundits are alleging that this could be preparing the road for the impeachment of the DP but only time will tell.
