We cannot republish the content of his tweet because the savage post casts the members of the cabinet in a very unflattering light.

On the other hand, the senator for Narok County, Olekina Ledama said that Ruto has appointed politicians in his cabinet instead of technocrats.

He questioned the ability of the appointed cabinets in healing the ailing economy.

“Now, on a serious note, the National Assembly needs to vet the nominees seriously against chapter six as well as competency. It’s a paradigm shift from technocrats to politicians. What does this mean to the corporate world and economic recovery of a nation wallowing in debts,” said Olekina.
