How Rigathi Gachagua Allegedly Pushed Ruto to the Wall, Locked Out Other Regions on PS Slots

Close sources attached to statehouse have alleged that there is a quiet power play between president William Ruto and his Deputy, Rigathi Gachagua.

The sources alleged that the deputy president Rigathi Gachagua pushed president William Ruto harder to wall by demanding that his Mount Kenya region gets the same number of Principal Secretary positions as the president's Rift Valley backyard.

The move according to the insiders saw president William Ruto and Rigathi Gachagua come up with two different lists of preferred principal secretary nominees. So disagreeing were the lists that the Public Service Commission was allegedly forced to add a few more names on the list of shortlisted candidates to create more room for Rigathi Gachagua's demands.

Allegedly, the move saw Ruto give 13 PS slots to the mountain region and 13 PSs slots to his Rift Valley region to satisfy the DP who insisted that they contributed a majority of the votes. Rigathi's move to get the same PS slots is said to have locked out other regions from being rewarded the PS slots.

While a number of counties missed a single appointment, a number of counties in the Mount Kenya region produced more than two PS nominees. Sources allege that the list will be revisited by the president if squashed by the court. oh 22.
