Some are concerned about the size of the new Kenyan government

After the controversial polls and the riots that continued, which has resulted in more than 1000 deaths, the Kenyan president has formed a power sharing coalition government with a 41 member cabinet. It is said to be the largest cabinet the country has seen in their democratic history. Some are concerned about the inefficiency and huge costs that would result from the size of the new cabinet. Some are voicing their concern about the confusion that would result from the huge cabinet and about some ministries that doesn’t have a specific task assigned to it.
Please would someone tell these concerned citizens of this East Africa’s most successful country not to worry too much as we Sri Lankans are still surviving somehow with a 100+ cabinet? What about the ministries that don’t have any specific tasks? Need not to worry about that either, as we have plenty of them not one or two.
