Nakuru - President Uhuru Kenyatta has been advised to stop tribal and politically instigated appointments in government if he wants to easily win the 2017 general elections.
Former Naivasha MP, Jane Kihara said that tribal instigated appointments in government were painting a bad image on the Jubilee government and asked him to change his style of making senior appointments in government.
Speaking Wednesday morning at a women’s leadership conference in Nakuru town, Kihara said that Kenyatta will not be any different from his predecessors if he continues with the same style of making senior appointments in government.
“The President should stop making senior appointments based on ethnic or political inclinations because that will make him appear as a President of a select few and might make it hard for him to recapture his seat in 2017,” said Kihara.

“The President must ensure that his appointments have a national outlook because it will help in curbing negative ethnicity as well as making him a nationalist,” she added.
Kihara called on Kenyatta to reward regions that never voted for him with plum government jobs to prove that he is a President for all.
“Let him share the big positions in government among all regions and not concentrate them in two regions as is the case today,” she said.
