We Are Waiting For Them In Parliament, Opiya Wandanyi Warns Ruto Over His Cabinet Nominees

The Ugunja Member of Parliament Opiyo Wandayi has now expressed her concerns with President William Ruto's nomination of the cabinet secretaries, stating that the nomination did not follow the ethnic balance outlined in the Kenyan constitution.

Opiyo, who expressed his worries on Wednesday night, claimed that other people share his opinion that the majority of those nominated for such posts don't deserve to hold public office.

"This government is only available to large ethnic groupings. Regions near Mount Kenya and the Rift Valley now have half of the cabinet. According to Opiyo Wandayi, some of them are ineligible to occupy public office, thus we are waiting for them in Parliament.

Wandayi's comments come at a time when many individuals, particularly those from the Luo Nyanza region, have voiced their displeasure about the seeming exclusion of their region from the cabinet—with the exception of the new ICT CS Eliud Owallo.
