4 People who forced Uhuru to cancel naming remaining members of his cabinet

Remaining Cabinet Secretaries announcement cancelled at the last minute

A disagreement ensued between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy over the inclusion of four names in the Cabinet, forcing the event to be called off at the eleventh hour.

The Star reported that Uhuru refused to bring on board Ruto’s allies who are critical to his 2022 bid.

Top on the list of contention is former Budalangi legislator Ababu Namwamba, Former Agriculture CS Davis Chirchir and the late Nicholas Biwott’s daughter Esther Koimett.

DP Ruto’s camp also reportedly rejected four former politicians from the opposition stronghold of Nyanza region who had featured in the list.

A source told The Star that 2022 succession surfaced with Ruto reportedly believing that the former politicians are too close to Raila, while others are “too independent and/or close to the Baringo Senator Gideon Moi,”.

The inclusion of Kiprono Kittony in the new outfit was also flatly rejected by Ruto’s camp who see him as a threat due to his close ties with Baringo Senator Gideon Moi who has also declared interest in the 2022 race to State House.
