Later, President William Ruto named his cabinet. Most of the people listed are politicians, some of them are elected officials, and a few of them are party leaders. According to reports, any political parties that the incoming CSs had will likely have to dissolve. The dissolutions could result from the appointment of party leaders to Cabinet positions who are afterwards prohibited from holding office in political parties under the legislation.
It is becoming apparent that keeping party leaders around would be untenable given the fact that the majority of parties are entities that can hardly operate without their leaders. Along with Moses Kuria's Chama Cha Kazi (CCK), the Amani National Congress (ANC) of Musalia Mudavadi and Alfred Mutua's Maendeleo Chap Chap are two other parties whose leaders have been nominated for the Cabinet (MCC).
However, Macharia Munene, a university lecturer, has criticized the decision to dissolve these parties. The error, according to Munene, could have political repercussions for President William Ruto. Munene thinks that party dissolution might have an impact on the power of local authorities. According to him, regional leaders must have their own parties in order to thrive.
Macharia Munene, a university instructor, warns that the president might attempt to have the parities dissolve.
"Parties are how party leaders continue to exist. Previous attempts at the strategy ended in failure. Ruto recognizes the value of having regional point people in one's network as a political student of former President Daniel Moi and Raila." Addition by Macharia Munene.
