Analyst Reveals Ruto's Blunder That Might Affect His Re- election In 2027, Details Emerge

Political experts, commentators, and other stakeholders have given their comments on the new cabinet of president William Ruto. The new cabinet has received praise as well as detractors.

Political analyst and management expert Nerima Wako is one of the key figures that has criticized president William Ruto's government. In an interview with KTN television, Wako asserted that Ruto's choice of the cabinet may have been a mistake politically and could have hurt his prospects of being re-elected in 2022.

According to Wako, eight million registered voters (8M) did not cast a ballot. The majority of those who did not vote are young people.

Wako believes that Ruto could have used this opportunity to convince more people—especially young people—to support him in the 2027 election. Ruto is bringing in more young people to the cabinet.

"The youths required the creation of a unique ministry. They make up the bulk. However, this has not occurred, " Wako stated. She continued by saying that Ruto's unwillingness to establish a ministry for youths or appoint more young people to the cabinet will continue to marginalize young people and breed voter indifference.

President William Ruto, the leader of the UDA party, has received praise from Johnstone Muthama for appointing a professional and well-balanced cabinet.

The former senator for Machakos expressed his confidence in the cabinet candidates' ability to present the Kenya Kwanza Alliance platform to Kenyans.

I want to applaud and congratulate President William Ruto for appointing a capable and well-balanced cabinet for Kenya. The chair of the UDA party, Muthama, wrote on his official Facebook page, "We are certain that these ladies and gentlemen will deliver on our promise to the people of Kenya.

Johnstone Muthama, who served as William Ruto's point man in the broader Ukambani region, was not included on the president's list of cabinet nominees.

Three cabinet nominees came from the Ukambani region, including former Machakos governor Alfred Mutua who was named as the cabinet secretary for foreign affairs, former Kitui deputy governor Penninah Malonza who was nominated for the tourism portfolio, and former Energy cabinet secretary Monica Juma who was retained as the national security advisor.

There are currently three members of the cabinet from the Ukambani area, up from one during President William Ruto's previous administration.

In the previous administration, Ambassador Monica Juma was the only cabinet secretary from the Ukambani region.
