Revealed: Ruto revokes more Uhuru Kenyatta appointees in state agencies and parastatals


President Ruto has made radical changes to key state agencies by appointing new heads since he got into office in September. 

   President Ruto has made several appointments to state agencies as he ejects Uhuru appointees from running state agencies. The reorganization of state agency heads and board of directors continues as critics argue that the president targets Uhuru Kenyatta's allies. Most revoked appointees had not served a year, as many were appointed during the last two months of the elections. Critics allege that the president is about to award his allies as he ejects Uhuru and Raila allies from senior parastatal positions.

     Recently, Ruto appointed Simon Muyumba to the States Cooperation Advisory committee as the appointment of Wanjiru Wakogi was revoked through a gazette notice. Ruto appointed Sylvnus Martin as the new non-executive Information and Technology Authority board chairperson. Mr. Sylvanus will serve for three years, replacing Fredrick Owino with immediate effect. 

    Ugas Mohamed was appointed to head the chairperson of Capital Markets Authority, replacing Nick Nesbit appointed under the Uhuru Kenyatta regime. Natasha Amour, Elena Natalia, Meshach UMoses, Gibson Kimani, and Michael Bowen were appointed to the Capital Market Authority board by the treasury. As the president reorganizes the government, more Uhuru allies will face the music as the president replaces them with his appointees.
