• Audience found the comments funny, though the CSs appeared less than amused
• The head of state also warned the corrupt
President Uhuru Kenyatta has publicly bashed his Cabinet secretaries and longest serving aide for "lack of seriousness".
"I am looking at my brother Mwangi Kiunjuri (Agriculture CS) who has just opened his notepad to write what I am saying. But he was not interested in writing what these Kenyans are saying," Uhuru said.
Speaking during his trip to Namibia, Uhuru said Kiunjuri was not writing notes since what the Kenyans were saying was not related to agriculture.
"He forgets that he is a minister of the republic of Kenya and whatever that is said he should be interested to know what it is these people are telling us," Uhuru said amid laughter from the crowd.
Uhuru went on to take a strike at Trade CS Peter Munya.
He said, "The same applies to you. We just look at people who talk here and yet these are my Cabinet secretaries. I have a long serving PA here. Look at him he is just looking at me while looking at his watch and not that which has been said. It is only me who will remember what is said here. If I don't remember, then everything will be washed away.
Uhuru also took Foreign Affairs CS Monica Juma to task over issuing of passports to Kenyans living in Namibia.
"Monica I wont say this again, we have agreed and must agree on a system that will help with the issuance of passports of Kenyans here," he said.
Kenyans have complained about it being too costly for them to travel to Kenya to be issued Kenyan passports.
During his visit to Namibia, Uhuru said the anti-graft axe will spare no one including his closest political allies.
The head of state warned the corrupt, saying he is ready to fight his “closest political ally, brother or sister” if they steal from Kenyans.
Uhuru, in a no-holds-barred address to Kenyans in Windhoek, Namibia, promised an unrelenting crackdown on the corrupt.
