Last week, Mr Sudi became a butt of online jokes with Kenyans trolling him after he appeared to struggle reading his oath office during the swearing-in of MPs in the National Assembly.

Mr Sudi’s academic credentials have in the past been a subject of debate and there even an ongoing case on the matter at the High Court.

His academic background notwithstanding, Mr Sudi is one of President Ruto’s most trusted allies. An abrasive and confrontational politician, Mr Sudi is known for his hardline stance and for issuing controversial political statements, often targeting retired President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

On one occasion, he and Dr Ruto, who was the Deputy President, were barred from travelling to Uganda under unclear circumstances.
