George Wajackoyah, the leader of the Roots Party, announced his partial cabinet while canvassing Meru County for votes.
In a speech to his supporters, Wajackoyah revealed that if Kenyans elect him as their next president, he will appoint George Kinoti as his interior cabinet secretary to succeed Fred Matiang’i. Kinoti is now the director of criminal investigations (DCI).
“There is a short, smart man who wears glasses with whom we attended school in England. I will appoint that man, who goes by the name Muthomi in Meru, as my attorney general. In order for the Meru people to feel like a part of my government, I will also appoint DCI George Kinoti as my Interior CS, declared Wajackoyah.
Deputy President William Ruto was criticized by Wajackoyah at the same time for his recently released manifesto.
Ruto’s Bottom-up economic approach was attacked by him, who said that his manifesto was the most effective at providing solutions to Kenya’s issues.
Wajakoyah claims that Ruto’s Bottom-up manifesto is unrealistic because it makes promises to Kenyans that Ruto will be unable to keep.
His comments follow DP Ruto’s accusations that the simultaneous release of his manifesto and that of George Wajacoyah, the presidential candidate for the Roots Party, was an attempt to steal his thunder.
