"President Ruto Has Remembered Us Yet We Didn't Vote For Him' Ex-Minister Thanks Ruto Over a CS Slot

Days after President William Ruto announced his cabinet members, leaders from all political divisions, analysts and Kenyans in general still had mixed reactions to the list.

Ruto announced his cabinet on Tuesday, two weeks after taking office as Kenya's fifth president, with many candidates as leaders who supported him before and after his defeat to his former boss, President-General Uhuru Kenyatta, and during the campaign.

Union Kenya Kwanza and Azimio La Umoja Elder and Kenya Alliance leader congratulated Ruto on the appointment of Garissa City MP Aden Duale as Minister of Defense on Saturday.

Addressing the media, the former Minister of Foreign Affairs in President Hussein Maalim thanked Ruto saying that although most people in the North East region are focused on supporting former Prime Minister Raila Odinga's candidacy for President, Ruto has not forgotten them and has given Duala a strong position in his cabinet.

"When we voted for you in 2013 and 2017 with almost 98%, you gave us a key place. In 2022, when we do not vote for you by right, you still give us an even stronger position. Even after fighting with you, you supported us and we thank you , that you have your own Aden Duale in your wardrobe,” said Maalim.

Leaders continued to ask Ruto to appoint more leaders from the region to various state offices.
