Congratulations to the PS nominees appointed by president. Unfortunately, the list has caused jitters in the Gusii nation. Since independence Kisiis have never missed in the Permanent Secretary of this nation, sadly we cannot say the same for the Ruto’s bottom up administration.
Gusii electorates are a disillusioned lot after it appeared that no son of the Gusii Nation was considered for the slot. A dramatic new normal that they must embrace.
It is worth noting that the Ruto administration scooped considerable number of votes from both Kisii and Nyamira counties. The best they get is a zero seat in the table of the powers that be! Can you imagine that the Luos got 2 slots. For the first time, our friends from the North, Somalis (serial tax evaders) scooped a whooping 7 slots. A world class milestone feat in the political space in Kenya.
It is safe to say, the Kenya Kwanza administration is a Kalenjin affair. The gusii greats warned that Ruto had zero interests of our people, we ignored them and name called them, Sadly we have lived enough to see that materialise.
Since independence we have had Kisiis Ps namely:
*The NO nonsense Snr Nyachae*
Just but to mention a few.
It is fairly yesterday when president made vacant the position of Solicitor General, currently held by Ken Ogeto. Ironically the UDA mps leadership from the Gusii Nation were the first to celebrate the move and wish for an Ogeto ouster.
The question is, Will they help a Kisii get the slot?
The self imposed kingpins and regional bigwigs could not influence a single PS position for our brothers and sisters. We will live to imagine how the same leaders will influence slots for our youths.
Omogusii as a whole falls top 3 in the economic drivers per community, the best outside government privileged. The only reason we have never missed in any administration.
Some egocentric individuals from the gusii nation celebrated the exit of Dr. Matiang’i and company. They pegged him a failure. Sheer lies to speak!
Dr. Matiang’i achieved all he mainly because he had the support of able men and women in the Uhuru Administration. My heart goes out to Cs.
The Big question,
Will Ezekiel Machogu the new Cs manage to influence big projects and appointments for our people all alone?
