President William Samoei Ruto chaired his first cabinet meeting on Tuesday September 26 at The Statehouse.
The meeting saw all cabinet secretaries in attendance including Fred Matiang’i(Interior), Peter Munya(Agriculture), Joe Mucheru(ICT), Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa among others who were in the frontline in campaigning for Azimio presidential candidate and ODM leader Raila Odinga while slamming and bashing Ruto.
Ruto’s allies have however not kept calm after spotting the CSs in the meeting chaired by President Ruto.
“H.E Ruto is chairing his first cabinet meeting and interestingly Matiangi, Munya,Tobiko , Mucheru,wamalwa,Amina & Balala are attending. The man they campaign against is their boss lazima inauma sana,” Nandi senator Samson Cherargei said.
“If the humble pie was a person. Matiangi and Munya looking so humble,” read another comment.
“CS Tobiko called Ruto a mere clerk, CS Matiangi described Ruto as Sympathy Addict, CS Munya insisted Ruto was a murderer and a looter, CS Wamalwa – claimed Ruto was a Professional liar, CS Mucheru – who said Ruto’s Bottom-up was fraud,” said another.

Several Kenyans have however been shocked to see Matiang’i as some thought that he was not in the country.
“I thought Okengo Matiangi had a job at UN, New York,” a netizen said.
The super CS during Uhuru Kenyatta’s tenure had kept a low profile since Ruto was declared winner of August 9 general elections. He went ahead and deactivated his official Twitter account.
