Kimani Ngunjiri Alleges The Lucrative Position President Ruto Offered Him But He Rejected.

Former Bahati constituency member of Parliament Hon Kimani Ngunjiri who is among those who strongly fought for President William Ruto's win, has claimed that the president offered him a lucrative position in his government but he rejected.

The former Bahati lawmaker claimed that President Ruto offered him a Cabinet Secretary job in his government but he completely rejected it. According to him, he was not ready for such a big position but wanted something lesser.

However, the former Jubilee lawmaker is yet to be given a position even as the head of state continues constitituting his government. The only appointment remaining in the cabinet is that one of the Chief Administrative Secretaries which the president will be unveiling, whether he will be named a CAS or will be given another role in the government is a matter of time.

Ngunjiri who ran on the United Democratic Alliance party lost his seat to Irine Njoki of the Jubilee party, he challenged Njoki's win but later withdrew the case.

Ngunjiri is among the allies of Ruto who lost in the August 2022 general elections who are yet to be given jobs in the government. Others who are still outside include former Laikipia County women representative Cate Waruguru, former Soy Constituency member of Parliament Hon Caleb Kositany, former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama who is also the national chairman of the United Democratic Alliance party, among other Kenya Kwanza Alliance politicians.

The president has however rewarded his close allies with the state jobs, a clear indication that even those who are still in the cold might be lucky to be given positions.
