William Ruto's 'HUSTLER CABINET ' is worth more than Joe Biden's USA cabinet. Here are the net worth

The decision of the 22 nominees of President William Ruto's Cabinet has been adjourned on Saturday, October 22, and the Appointments Committee is preparing a report to be debated in the National Assembly before being sent to the Head of State.

As the panel recruited each candidate during a week-long vetting session on various issues of interest, little was revealed about the men and women poised to lead the country.

Perhaps one of the highlights of the oversight process is the public value of Cabinet nominations.

Of the 22 nominees for the position of Prime Minister's Cabinet Secretary, Musalia Mudavadi topped the total net worth list after declaring her net worth to be $4.4 billion, followed by Agriculture CS nominee Mithika Linturi with $1.2 billion.

The next three are Simon Chelugui, Professor Njuguna Ndungu and Aden Duale with a combined net worth of Ksh.993 million, Ksh.950 million and Ksh.871 million respectively.

Trade CS candidate Musa Kuria revealed that his total wealth is Ksh 750 million, followed by Attorney General candidate Justin Muturi (Ksh.700M), ICT CS candidate Eliud Ovalo (Ksh.645M), Education CS candidate Ezekiel Machgun (Ksh.590M). , Transport CS candidate Kipchumba Murkomen (Ksh.550M) and Interior CS candidate Kithure Kindiki (Ksh.544M).

Other candidates declared their wealth as follows: Davis Chirchir (Ksh.482M), Mercy Wanjau (Ksh.475M), Ababu Namwamba (Ksh.425M), Alfred Mutua (Ksh.420M), Rebecca Miano (Ksh.397M), Peninah Malonza ( Ksh.

In total, the 22 cabinet nominees have a combined net worth of Ksh 15 billion, more than US President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and the Cabinet Secretary combined.

A report published by Forbes last year put President Biden, VP Kamala Harris and 15 members of his cabinet at a combined net worth of $118 million which is about 14 billion ksh.

President Biden's net worth is $8 million (Ksh.958M) and Kamala Harris's net worth is $7 million (Ksh.838M).

According to reports, US Attorney General Merrick Brian Garland and Treasury Secretary Janet Elellen topped the list with $20 million (Sh2 billion), followed by Secretary of State Anthony Blinken with $10 million (Sh1.2 billion). .
