The "defectors" have been given cabinet positions while loyal party members haven't been given any.

“We felt left out of this government after the appointments were made. We stood by Uhuru and Ruto throughout the campaigns. We delivered votes both in the August 8 and the October 26 polls but we were never appreciated,” The Standard reports them saying.

Former Bomet governor Isaac Ruto of Chama Cha Mashinani, who defected from NASA to Jubilee was expected to have receive a Cabinet or Permanent Secretary position.

David Nkedianye (ODM) who was former governor of Kajiado withdrew the election petition against Governor Joseph ole Lenku after being promised a substantial government position.

Bomet governor Joyce Laboso has implored the president and his deputy to award Isaac Ruto with a ministerial  position.

“Find something at least for him. We are not selfish people, we are not sadists to wish that anyone perishes. We want as many of Bomet people to get an opportunity wherever they can,” she said.

Nakuru governor Lee Kinyanjui also expressed disappointment as his residents were also expecting positions. He accused the president of failing to appreciate the support he received during the elections.

However, University of Eldoret lecturer Philip Chebunet said the South Rift region is already well represented in government with two cabinet slots- Energy CS Charles Keter and Water CS nominee Chelugui.
