Outgoing Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i and his ICT counterpart, Joe Mucheru, had previously claimed that Ruto would be defeated in the August 9 polls. 

They openly campaigned for Azimio candidate Raila Odinga and alleged Raila would win by garnering 60 percent of the votes. 

Agriculture CS, Peter Munya who previously missed an event where Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua flagged subsidized fertilisers and was one of Ruto’s harshest critics traversed the Mt Kenya region campaigning for Raila.

The first Cabinet meeting comes amid pressure mounted on Ruto to appoint CSs with issues of the economy, insecurity, and Competency-Based Curriculum at the centre stage.
