Members of Parliaments allied to Deputy President led by Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa now wants the President to crack the whip and do away with his Cabinet Secretaries who are defied his and the Constitution orders and are engaging in partisan politics ahead of 2022 Elections. The officials have been openly rooting for ODM leader Raila Odinga to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala, has also joined a list of Ruto's lawmakers who have reacted to the Matiang'i's latest remarks after publicly endorsed Raila. Matiang’i was accompanied by Health CS Mutahi Kagwe and his Defence counterpart Eugene Wamalwa during a fundraiser in Nyamira county.
“Matiang’i is a CS, if you want to politic then step aside and let someone do the job. All state officers campaigning for Raila we are telling them to go home before we think of a strategy to force them out." Ruto's ally said.
Apart from Matiang’i, some of the Cabinet ministers who have engaged in politics include Joe Mucheru (ICT), Keriako Tobiko (Environment), Ukur Yatani (Treasury), John Munyes (Petroleum), and Peter Munya (Agriculture).
