Details Emerge About Ruto' s New Approach To Choose Cabinet Secretaries

Although his main rival, Raila Odinga, has protested the election results and said he will file a petition with the Supreme Court, the country's current Deputy President William Ruto, who now serves as the President-Elect after being declared the winner of the presidential race on August 9th, is already prepared to take the reins.

While meeting with leaders around the country who were picked as part of the Kenya Kwanza Independence Campaign, Ruto gave the assurance to all Kenyans that he is keen to see that he fulfills the KKA manifesto. Governors, their deputies, senators, members of parliament, and female representatives are among these leaders.

He claimed that Kenyans have faced challenging circumstances and that his main concern is ensuring that his campaign promises are kept. In providing services to citizens, he continued, his team does not have the luxury of time to waste. He reassured Kenyans that he will treat everyone equally, whether or not they supported him in the election.

When picking members of his cabinet, Ruto declared that his administration would modify the parliamentary procedures to ensure that CS may be questioned about their portfolios in the legislature.

"We will be examining at the pending orders because it has been challenging for the politicians to speak out for CS.

So that the senators and members of the House of Representatives, who are the representatives of the people, can challenge the government's actions, they will need to respond to inquiries and explain government policy.

We will have plans to ensure that we run an accountable government and that the people of Kenya can ask questions through their legislators because we want to be held accountable as a government, said Ruto. "It is not enough for the CS to just go to the parliamentary committee," he continued.
