NAIROBI, March 26 (Xinhua) -- Kenyan leaders on Monday made a cabinet reshuffle that saw the country's tourism minister Najib Balala sacked.

A statement from President Mwai Kibaki said the changes which were made in consultation with Prime Minister Raila Odinga saw the appointment of youthful lawmaker Eugene Wamalwa as the new Minister for Justice Ministry and another lawmaker, Jamleck Kamau, appointed the new minister for Nairobi Metropolitan.

"The changes take effect immediately," Kibaki said in a statement released on Monday night.

In the changes, Foreign Minister Moses Wetangula and former Justice Minister Mutula Kilonzo have been moved to Trade and Education ministries respectively.

Wetangula who returned to the country on Sunday night after being stranded in Mali following a coup in the West African nation was replaced by Professor Sam Ongeri who was previously the Minister for Education.

Others affected by the changes include Njeru Githae who has been confirmed Finance Minister and lawmaker Danson Mwazo replaces Balala while Chirau Ali Mwakwere moves to the Ministry of Environment from Trade.

Good for the Ministry of Education. We expect the straight eyed lawyer Mutula to dismantle the tribal dynasties that were designed and encrrusted in the MoE by Ongeri and his system.
