Some few days ago, the president of the republic of Kenya, Dr William Samoe Ruto announced his new cabinet as required by the law. On his cabinet, Dr William Ruto only retained one of the Uhuru's ministers on his cabinet. This minister is none other than hon Simon Chelugui whom he appointed as the minister for small enterprise and corporations.
Now, today, reports have emerged on why Dr William Ruto decided to retain Mr Chelugui. As reported by the Nation Africa, Ruto decided to retain Chelugui because of their pre-election agreement where Ruto had promised Mr Chelugui a slot on his cabinet if he will choose not to contest for gubernatorial seat in Baringo county something which Chelugui agreed. Another reason why Ruto decided to retain him is what has been said to be Chelugui's excellent performance in the ministry of Water and sanitation.
"President William Ruto is said to have prevailed upon Mr Chelugui against resigning from the Cabinet to run for the Baringo governor’s seat in the August 9 poll. Dr Ruto subsequently held meetings with elders from Baringo at his Sugoi home in 2021 New Year eve where he is said to have pledged to retain Mr Chelugui at the national level." Said the reports.
