Deep state is a term that was heavily used especially during the last campaigns in the race to become Kenya's 5th president. The term is used to refer to men and women who control the corridor's of power next to the president. Before you access the president, you have to in some way pass through them. Uhuru Kenyatta had his own men and Ruto also seemingly has his.
Farouk Kibet tops the list, when Ruto's kitchen cabinet id mentioned. He has been Ruto's aide for a very long time. It has reported before that he controls access to the president and is feared even by some politician's.
Raymond Omollo is the interior PS and will be reporting all matters related to security, just like Kibicho was during Uhuru's reign.
Katoo Ole Metito is the state house comptroller and is also part of the team, same as Mary Wambui who is the Communication Authority chairperson.
Gladys's Shollei is the last on the top list. She is the deputy national assembly speaker. She was very vital in the run up to the last general election.
