Experts Weigh On Ruto's Blunder in Naming Cabinet that Could Hurt his 2027 Re-election Bid

Political analysts, commentators and other stakeholders have had their say about president William Ruto's new cabinet. The new cabinet has attracted both praises and criticisms.

One of the key opinion shapers who have criticised president William Ruto's cabinet is political analyst and management expert Nerima wako. According to Wako who spoke to KTN news, Ruto's choice of cabinet could be a political blunder that may hurt his 2022 re-election bid.

According to Wako, a whooping eight million ( 8M ) registered voters abstained from voting. A larger percentage of those who avoided voting are the youths.

Wako says that Ruto could have used this opportunity to encourage more people especially the youth to vote for him come 2027. "By appointing more youths to cabinet, Ruto could have won favor from the youths who would inturn turn out in larger numbers to vote for him in 2027," said Wako.

"The youths needed a special ministry created for them. They are the majority. Yet this has not happened," said Wako. She added that Ruto's failure to create a youths Ministry or appoint more youths to the cabinet will continuously make the youths sidelined and increase apathy in voting.
