    Ruto Under Pressure on the recent PS Appointments

    Published on

    Some political leaders, mainly those affiliated with the Azimio la Umoja coalition, have criticized the president for breaking his promise to increase the number of women in high political positions. Ruto had promised to implement his 50/50 gender balance in his cabinet.

    “We warned you that Ruto’s administration would be a tribal rather than national matter. This is not a bottom-up or Mama Mboga initiative. If you look at the PS list, you’ll see that two regions dominated it: those that voted overwhelmingly for Ruto in the presidential election.” Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina pointed out.

    Nonetheless, Ruto’s supporters have spoken out in defense of the president, claiming that he took into account issues of gender and regional representation when making his appointments.

    In a similar vein, Dennis Itumbi echoed the sentiment that President William Ruto PS’s appointments are a tale of great competence, regional balance, rewarding sacrifice, and generally bold picks.

    Aaron Cheruiyot, a senator from Kericho, was also quick to back President Ruto’s appointments, saying that the emphasis on county balance was a welcome change.

    “It’s a shame that our brains are hardwired to prioritize our own ethnic group. In light of Kenya’s new constitution, counties are the most accurate way to represent the country. Our Constitution is written in exactly that language. Forty-two of the 47 counties are represented in the PS appointments.” he stated

    The Former Member of parliament, Nixon Korir have been appointed as PS for Lands, Prof Edward Kisiangani (Broadcasting and Telecommunications) and Belio Kipsang ( Basic education)
