Sources Reveal What Ruto is About to do to KDF Boss Who Tried to Help Raila Become President

Sources close to President William Ruto have now hinted at possible changes in the military and intelligence departments in the coming days.

Ruto has been making changes since his swearing in in September, as he tries to settle down and focus on service delivery as per his manifesto.

While he has already put in place ministers and Principal Secretaries, he still has hundreds of positions to fill up, which those close to him have revealed could include sending some of the people currently holding these positions home.

They have cited Vice Chief of the Defence Forces Lt Gen Francis Ogolla, who, they say, though expected to retire later in the year, might be sent home sooner.

Ogolla has been named among members of the National Security Advisory Council (NSAC)who reportedly tried to assist in the alleged plot to rig Ruto out last August by trying to convince IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati to declare Azimio La Umoja candidate Raila Odinga instead.

Those close to Ruto have said that the same might happen to Director General of Intelligence (NIS) Philip Kameru, as Ruto moves to ensure that he has a full team that is ready to work as per his wishes.

They have revealed that those interested in the available positions, including those of Chief Administrative Secretaries (CAS), are already lobbying, with Ruto's loyalists leading in the race.

“Where we are now, there’s serious lobbying. The stakes are really high. No one is really sure how the president will go about it. What I can tell you now is that many Ruto allies are doing everything possible to raise their chances of landing a plum job," the Standard was told.

“No one knows the hour nor the day when the changes will be announced," the source adds.

Ruto has already been seen ejecting people he believes tried to stand on his way, including former Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai, who is also said to have been in Bomas.

The Bomas claims have been confirmed by Chebukati in his affidavits before the Supreme Court.
