The vast majority of cabinet secretaries who worked under retiring President Uhuru Kenyatta openly opposed William Ruto's bid for the presidency in the August general elections, instead endorsing Raila Odinga, the leader of the Azimio la umoja One Kenya coalition party.
According to The Nation, the first meeting between President William Ruto and the cabinet secretaries who worked in the government of former President Uhuru Kenyatta was unpleasant, and the former CSs had a humiliating experience at State House.
Former CS Joe Mucheru said in an interview with Nation that most of his coworkers were uncertain and anxious about how to handle a man who they had previously opposed but was now their supervisor.
However, their worries were allayed when President William Ruto entered the cabinet meeting room smiling and called out each CS by name in a way that put them at ease.
The president continued by saying that he had no ill will toward them and that he recognized their starting point as being purely political. He commanded them to put it behind them right away.
