As is the case with Amina Mohamed, the article is here because he is a cabinet secretary of Kenya, not because he is Somali. It is proper to recognise his ethnicity, which has been done a couple times in the article. As is the case with Stanley O'Neal, also a prominent ethnic minority banker in America, it is the person's main notability feature - in this case as a cabinet secretary and as a prominent banker - that is of primary importance, rather than his ethnic-minority status. This is also the case in various other examples of ethnic minorities in politics - such as Bobby Jindal, Adam Afriyie, Kwasi Kwarteng, etc. RantingMrP (talk) 05:22, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

No, this article is here because Adan Mohammed is a notable personage. He was the Managing Director of Barclays Bank in East and West Africa well before entering Kenyan politics last month. In fact, that's the very reason why he was appointed in the first place. Middayexpress (talk) 16:35, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
And all this not because he is of Somali ethnicity, but because of what he can do where he is.

Actually, the page is here because he's a notable personage. The fact that Adan is the first Somali Managing Director of Barclays Bank and now the second Somali to be appointed to a ministerial position in Kenya makes his ethnicity all the more relevant to his notability.
