    Ruto’s desires to hire ordinary citizens as CAS disclosed

    Published on

    On Wednesday, October 12, Senator for Nandi County Samson Cherargei revealed President William Ruto’s desire to hire ordinary wananchi as Chief Administrative Secretaries (CAS).

    As reported by Citizen TV’s Jeff Koinange in an interview with Cherargei titled “JK Live,” Cherargei said that the president plans to promote young people to higher positions in the government in order to help him cement his legacy.

    We want a few young people, hustlers, mama mbogas, boda boda operators to be CASs so that they may become PSs and Cabinet Secretaries,

    He said and then added

    I think we need CASs because they will help with government operations,

    Sen. Cheragei’s remarks, however, were made in the midst of fierce debate about whether or not to create the CAS posts.

    It was also speculated that Ruto’s decision to reinstate CAS posts was an attempt to soothe the pride of his supporters who had been shut out of elected office in the General Election.

    Why are we creating additional positions to reward politicians who have been rejected by their constituents?

    Senator Ledama Ole Kina of Narok criticized the phenomenon.

    The Employment and Labour Relations Court issued stay orders on Wednesday, October 12 to prevent the CAS positions from being implemented. The stay orders were secured by the Law Society of Kenya (LSK).

    However, Cheragei contended that LSK’s action was unwise and motivated by malice.

    The senator has requested that Attorney General challenge the stay orders.
