Lawyer Danstan Omari Claims Ruto's Move That May Backfire Forcing Him to Follow Uhuru's Decision

During the campaigns, President William Ruto then the deputy president engaged youthful leaders, and their loyalty has been rewarded in his appointments.

Ruto has brought on board youthful leaders in key positions in the cabinet, the Principal Secretaries, in the Senate and the National Assembly, a move that has been lauded by leaders across the country.

However, Lawyer and Political Expert Danstan Omari, in his interview with the Saturday Nation, claims that Ruto's decision to have youthful and green leaders in his government might backfire forcing him to reach out to the old guns, same decision made by the former President Uhuru Kenyatta during his first term.

Omari further claims that Ruto might be keeping the older politicians parking since he does not want to be challenged, and that he is looking past the 2022 polls.

"His cabinet is a mixture of the old and those in the middle age, but in parliament he has gone for young politicians. He's basically looking beyond 2022 as voters are mostly youths."

"But someone would ask if the president is scared of well established people, and the answer is yes. He wants people awho take instructions from him, and people who want handouts from him."
