Ekuru Aukot seeks to beat Uhuru in naming full cabinet

By NAIRA HABIB January 11th, 2018 1 min read

Former presidential candidate Ekuru Aukot is looking to hire individuals to take up positions in a ‘Shadow Cabinet’ in his Thirdway Alliance political outfit.

In a post that has elicited mixed reactions from Kenyans on Twitter, Dr Aukot urged interested Kenyans to send their CV’s before the end of January.

Dr Aukot’s invitation comes at a time when Kenyans are anxiously waiting for President Uhuru Kenyatta to name his full cabinet.

In October last year the Third Way Alliance Party leader declared himself the official opposition leader, after he conceded defeat by coming in third in the presidential race.


Aukot: I’m now Leader of Official Opposition

“While we might have come a distant third, we will play an effective opposition role now that the other outfit abandoned the role,” said Dr Aukot in his concession speech.

This is what netizens had to say:

@SirYuri_G said, “If you are recruiting new employees use the hashtag #IkoKaziKe.”

@BMakhoka wrote, “How many MPs does TWA have in parliament?… u need to get serious Man.”

@DavidKovad asked, “Minimum requirements?”

@Lolo_femme commented, “After kutuangusha the way you did?”

@Tonykoech83 asked, “Now this one is interesting, ati shadow cabinet, we know NASA and Raila sasa hii ni butchery gani tena?”

@ChairmanTsetong said, “Just for laughs and more jokes, follow Ekuru on his channel.”

@musakulu_amu wrote, “Dream on.”
