"Not Even Qualified To Look After My Camels" Ahmednasir Jeers At Ruto's Cabinet Secretaries

President William Ruto selected members of his cabinet a month after being sworn-in in September last year. Ruto's cabinet is arguably the one of the most political in the history of the country after he chose loyalty and political inclination as opposed to plain meritocracy.

Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi has given his thoughts about Kenya Kwanza administration's Executive four months after being formed claiming that some of the Cabinet Secretaries are grossly incompetent.

He pointed out that although it is too early to rate the men and women appointed to various government ministries by the President, it is clear that some of them cannot meet the expectations of Kenyans judging by the progress they have made so far.

"27th Oct 2022 is the day H.E Ruto's cabinet was sworn in...4 months is too short a period to evaluate a cabinet secretary... but spying on the notes and score card President William Ruto is taking must be fascinating. For me, a number are not even qualified to look after my camels in Bangal," the city lawyer said on his official Twitter handle on Saturday night.

Ruto appointed the maximum number of CSs, twenty-two in number. Most of them are election losers. Trade Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria vied for the Kiambu Governor seat but lost. Education CS Ezekiel Machogu was also a gubernatorial candidate in Kisii County. The same case applies to Health CS Susan Nakumicha whose Trans Nzoia Women Representative bid was unsuccessful.

While selecting Principal Secretaries, Ruto persisted with the same method; loyalty over meritocracy. He is set to also pick his team of Chief Administrative Secretaries (CAS). The list of shortlisted candidates already points to the direction the president is going to take in terms of criteria for choosing.
