CS Prof Margaret Kobia is the latest Cabinet Secretary to pay a visit to AU Envoy Raila Odinga and brief him on the various activities the Ministry is undertaking. The CS drove to Capitol Hill offices around 9am in the morning accompanied by top officials in her ministry, armed with various documents to show how the ministry is operating. Even though Mr Odinga does not hold any official government position, he has become a second center of power, working together with President Uhuru Kenyatta to run government.

The other Cabinet Secretaries who have been consulting Raila Odinga in his private offices include Trade and Industrialization’s Peter Munya, Infrastructure’s James Macharia, Agriculture’s Mwangi Kiunjuri, IT’s Joe Mucheru and now Prof Kobia.
It is believed the CS’shave been given a direct permission from President Uhuru Kenyatta to consult the ODM leader, given his wealth of experience in running government.
