Is This Former Uhuru CS Set To Bounce Back In Ruto's Cabinet After A Failed Governor Bid?

With President William Ruto still constituting his cabinet almost one week since his swearing-in as Kenya's fifth President, a good number of his close allies are waiting with a bated breath to know of they will land the lucrative positions.

One of those political big boys who are optimistic Dr Ruto will consider them for top positions in the cabinet, include former Energy Cabinet Secretary Charles Keter.

Keter is among those who resigned from government in February this year in a bid to try their luck in elective politics. But his gamble backfired as he failed to clinch the UDA party ticket to vie for Kericho County Governor seat as he lost to Dr Eric Mutai.

Since then, Keter decided to take a low political profile. He was conspicuously missing in President Ruto's presidential campaigns.

But for long, the former Kericho County Senator has been a close associate of the President. It is therefore never in doubt that he will bounce back in style with a powerful position in the Kenya Kwanza Government.

Besides being one of the most powerful members of the old regime of former President Uhuru Kenyatta, Keter is also one of the most experienced politicians in Rift Valley. This experience may not go on waste. Will Uhuru bring him back on board?
