The current public spat between suspended advisor of Prime Minister Miguna Miguna and the office of the prime minister is because Miguna has refused to toe the line and allow the cabal at the PM office to eat. The allegations by Miguna that there is corruption at the OPM are rigth the employees at the OPM been cited in several reports as being involved in corruption. The cabal at the PM office feels that this is their time to eat and anyone who is rocking this boat needs to be banished to the political Siberia if not to Ngong to be munched by hyenas. Over the last four years since Raila started fumbling politically we pundits in the blogsphere have been calling for the PM to reorganize the PM office. It was a good idea when the PM hired Miguna Miguna as a personal advisor because since then sanity in running the PM political agenda was restored.
The latest embrassement endured by the PM over the Kazi kwa Vijana scandal was due to Caroli and Isahkiah incompetence and mismanagement of the programme. The Prime Minister had to take the bullet and use his political skill to survive the scandal that was giving his opponents a chance to finally crucify him.
Right now Kibaki and Raila have a gentleman truce to work together but as next year starts things will change as Kibaki will come under a lot of pressure from his camp to give them a free reign to take on Raila Politically. Being Kenya politics are personality based the PM still needs someone of Miguna miguna calibre to defend him.
However, this won’t be possible until Raila interests align with those who are working for him at the OPM. Since this not going to happen the only solution is the PM to fire all his front office and bring a Mr fix it. Who is the MR fix it? in 2002 Salim Lone was the person but i think he is not available and so it is time for Raila to look far and wide and bring a real Administrator close to Muthaura type and let his polical advisor do what strategist do ruffle feathers, pull tricks and make sure that the political magic hat is alway equiped with rabbits
