What Raila's MPs Are Planning to do to The CSs Ruto Picked on Tuesday

Opposition Members of Parliament have revealed plans to attempt and prevent some of the Cabinet Secretaries proposed by President William Ruto.

Ruto on Tuesday named some of the men and women he has chosen as best placed to help him govern the country as his ministers.

But the MPs allied to Azimio La Umoja leader Raila Odinga have questioned some of the picks he made, accusing them of corruption and ethical deficits.

They have said that they will not sit back and let those they are speaking about smoothly take over, revealing plans to try and stop them during vetting.

"Equally worrying is the fact that a good number of the nominees have no demonstrated record of critical thinking that this country requires to dig itself out of the economic mess we've had for the past ten years," they told the press, reports Citizen Digital.

The group, which spoke in Nairobi, was led by Ugunja MP Opiyo Wandayi, who is also Azimio's proposed National Assembly Majority Leader.

They said that there is no progress that can be made with some of the people Ruto proposed in office, as they should be in prisons and not the cabinet.

"In an economy that is crying for revival, it is shocking that the UDA administration has packed the proposed Cabinet with some men and women who should be in jail for engaging in economic crimes and sabotage of the country," Wandayi said.

They also promised to reveal more bad deeds of the identified CS nominees in the coming days, vowing to make their stay in office uncomfortable if they go through the vetting phase.
