The Vice President’s office has handled the Social Investment Programme in an impeccable and successful manner in the previous term, thus, removing it from his supervision is a risk because it may slow down things.
The Professor when deliberating on how the Vice-President’s role seems to have been whittled down in this second term while he was said to have been responsible for some successes in the previous term mentioned that the main responsibility that was taken away from the Vice-President is the Social Investment Programme which has been taken to the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs.
He added that he was given the impression that some people working on the SIP have been moved to that ministry, therefore, we should wait and see. “My approach to things as shown in my support for Magu is that when things are going well, I don’t like disturbing them.”
The administration was very much effective; Mrs. Mariam Uwais who was the adviser, did a magnificent job. They were thorough, professional and curbed corruption. The school feeding programme and other aspects of the programme went well. Those involved in corruption were brought to book and monies were recovered.
He further stated that he personally would have wanted things to continue as it was, but those who have the powers have decided that they want to transfer it to a new ministry, hoping that this new ministry does not fall below the standard.
