Cherargei said anyone who vied on Azimio la Umoja one Kenya Coalition party in the August 9 General Election and lost should not be allowed to serve in the Kenya Kwanza government.
The legislator in a statement on Monday, October 10, wondered how those who opposed the bottom-up economic model would help the president deliver as per his pre-election manifesto when they did not believe in the same manifesto.
He said awarding Raila sympathisers with state jobs will likely derail the Kenya Kwanza government from delivering the promises made during the campaign period.
“On the shortlisted PSs have seen some Azimio-OKA apologists who didn’t believe in William Ruto’s Presidency and insulted him, let them remain in opposition not to sabotage our God-given government and no recycling. Loyalty to President William Ruto must be absolute to serve government and Kenyans,” Senator Cherargei said in a Tweet.
His sentiments follow a statement from Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua who said that politicians who rallied behind William Ruto’s presidential candidature in the lead-up to the August 9 election will be given first priority in state appointments.
Gachagua who was speaking during a thanksgiving service in Uasin Gishu on Sunday, October 9, alluded that positions will be given based on one’s contribution to Kenya’s Kwanza victory in the August 9 General Election.
“Yes, you should know that you are reaping what you sow. others want to reap where they did not sow, those who sowed should reap first,” Gachagua said.
Their comments come just days after the PSC revised list of candidates shortlisted for Principal Secretary jobs in what is suspected was aimed at accommodating William Ruto’s loyalists.
