Kenyan President shuffles Cabinet to boost his hold

Kenyan President Daniel arap Moi curbed the power of two influential ministers and promoted two political allies in a Cabinet shuffle. Only nine ministers out of 25 were unaffected by the changes, which diplomats said were intended to strengthen Mr. Moi's position.
