“It’s our time”, We will reward Ruto loyalists before newcomers, Gachagua tells Azimio 

Gachagua informs Azimio politicians abandoning Raila that the Kenya Kwanza government will first reward Ruto loyalists before newcomers.

The Azimio leaders abandoning former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and the Azimio One Kenya Alliance to join President William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza in a rude shock as Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua drops a bombshell over their late decision.

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has hinted that it is now time to reward all those that stood all along with President William Ruto and the Kenya Kwanza saying that “loyalists will be rewarded first.”

Speaking on Sunday in Koilel, Uasin Gishu County in what seemed to be a message directed to individuals who joined Ruto’s camp after elections, DP Gachagua said there is no way latecomers who contributed nothing to their election victory would be given special treatment before founders the Kenya Kwanza coalition.

“I want to say thank you to Wetang’ula, people of Bungoma and Trans Nzoia, your votes helped us a lot. Thank you very much our speaker. Ndiyo ujue unavuna ulichopanda, si alitusaidia, sasa amepata spika, wengine wanataka kuvuna pahali hawakupanda, wale walipanda, kwanza wavune. Tukimalizana na wale wote walipanda, wakishavuna, wale hawakupanda wachukue yale yatabaki ndiyo tusonge mbele,” said the DP.

His sentiment came just a day after the Public Service Commission (PSC) revised the list of candidates shortlisted for Principal Secretary jobs. 

A previous list of individuals who had been shortlisted for the position of Principal Secretaries had been canceled by the agency on Friday night, and a new, larger list had been released.

The commission claimed that it had increased inclusivity with regard to gender, marginalized and minority groups, youth, and people with disabilities by reviewing the number of short-listed candidates.

The new list has a total of 585 candidates. The earlier list had 477 candidates. This means that 108 persons were added.

But analysis of the new entrants revealed that most of them were individuals who are very close to the Kenya Kwanza bigwigs and contributed to the victory of Ruto and his deputy.

According to Mr. Gachagua, those who joined after IEBC declared Dr. Ruto the winner on August 15—like former Makueni governor Kivutha Kibwana, James Ongwae (Kisii), Jack Ranguma (Kisumu), former Kisumu senator Fred Outa, former Kisii woman representative Janet Ong’era, among others—are likely to receive less lucrative state jobs.
