Higher Education minister William Ruto could finally be headed out of the Cabinet as Prime Minister Raila Odinga moves to punish ODM rebels in Cabinet changes expected this week.Also expected to face the axe are suspended Industrialisation minister Henry Kosgey, East African Community minister Prof Hellen Sambili and Livestock assistant minister Aden Duale as Mr Odinga moves to clamp down on political rebellion on his side of the coalition.Highly placed sources within ODM confirmed that the PM had finally decided to use the opportunity afforded by the constitutional requirement to appoint a new AG to act decisively on rebel party MPs serving in the Cabinet.“If all goes according to plan, it will come next week. It will be about getting rebels and those with court cases out. The party top brass is working out the details,” said one of the Prime Minister’s advisers who cannot be named because, he said, it would be tantamount to pre-empting his boss.The changes are expected to come along with the constitutional obligation to replace long-serving Attorney-General Amos Wako by August 27. It is understood that the appointment should come in good time to enable Mr Wako to hand over to his successor.
