President William Ruto has created a huge team in Kenya Kwanza Alliance that it has become a huge headache to reword the loyalty with key government appointments such as Cabinet Secretary, Permanent Secretaries among others.

However, after naming the Cabinet list which now awaits parliamentary approval, Dr Ruto’s remaining team had to make applications for the positions of Permanent Secretaries through the Public Service Commission.

It has however emerged that some key members of the president’s camp are destined to miss the slots following shoetlisting by the PSC.

This means their only remaining appointment slots are the ambassadorial, parastals and possible commission’s, which are not as lucrative and powerful as that of the Cabinet or Permanent secretary.

According to Nation, some of the bigwigs in president Ruto’s camp who missed out on the final Permanent Secretaries list by the PSC include former South Mugirango MP Omingo Magara, Farmers Party leader Irungu Nyakera and former Kamukunji MP Simon Mbugua.

Others are former Laikipia woman rep Cate Waruguru, former Roots Party presidential running mate Justina Wangui Wamae and Wilson Sossion who is a former nominated MP.

They hoped to ascend to the most lucrative positions after losing in the August elections, but their ambitions were cut short by the Public Service Commission (PSC).

Out of 9,154 applicants for the slots of Permanent Secretaries, the Public Service Commission has only shorlisted 585 potential candidates scheduled for interview as from Monday next week.
