In 2006, Githae was an assistant minister for transport and in 2008 he was assistant minister for local government. He stepped up to become minister for metropolitan development in 2010 and in 2012 was made finance minister. He served in that post about a year before he was forced out after suggesting that Members of Parliament pay income taxes.
He was by then a close ally of President Uhuru Kenyatta but after the later second term commenced, Uhuru had a hard time to accommodate his close buddies as they had to share political posts with his Deputy William Ruto.
Uhuru all the same found Mr. Githae the Ambassadorial position in USA which is a major foreign mission post which leads in terms of economical and political ties.
He now moves to a tiny country with a population just slightly higher than eight million and which has no economical or any major political ties with Kenya.
The mission is normally for beginners and that alone is just a polite way of telling him” we no longer need your services”. Its time to read the signs of the times, ….yes it’s time to move on Sir and settle down to create room for young Kenyans.
This is just a polite advice to Mr. Githae as Uhuru reign is coming to an end in just less than three years and the next regime will recall almost all the Ambassadors and replace them with new ones.
If at all he has any political ambition and years will allow him to do so, this is the right time to go home to gauge the waters.
