Isaac Mwaura And Sankok Told Possible Reason Ruto Has Refused to Appoint Them

There are solid reasons why some of the people initially expected to land appointments in President William Ruto's government have failed to get positions, political analyst Javas Bigambo says.

Some of these politicians have remained out even as the positions are now running out, the most visible ones being former nominated MP David Sankok and former Senator Isaac Mwaura.

Mokua says that one of the reasons could be Ruto's attempts to bring in youthful figures, a category which the two and the others, the likes of former Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi, don't fall under.

He says that Ruto was looking for agile persons who can help him with realizing his dream for Kenya and implementing his agenda, qualifications he seems to have concluded they do not possess.

“In the selection or determination of who to serve as PS even among those Ruto settled on yesterday, it is very clear that while he picked some who were politicians before, he seems to have gone for fairly younger blood, more agile and energetic who can inject some energy in his government and implementation in his manifesto,” the commentator told The Star on phone on Thursday.

He says that Ruto has also gone for people who risked everything to campaign for him, and has rewarded those who didn't only campaign for him in their backyards but did it nationally.

“When you look at it keenly, you may want to appreciate that those who played sacrificial roles, especially those who went outside their political turfs, have been heavily rewarded,” Bigambo, also a governance expert, is further quoted.

This comes at a time when Ruto has already dished out most of the top positions, having picked Cabinet Secretaries, Principal Secretaries, National Assembly and Senate Speakers and Attorney General.
