According to the reports, it was claimed that the Kanu chief was lobbying for Kanu Secretary General Nick Salat, former Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto and Kiprono Kittony, the chairman of the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry to join the Cabinet. “I have played no role whatsoever in the formation of the Cabinet. I have not proposed any names to the Cabinet. I was elected the Baringo Senator and I am playing my part. Other people were elected to do those tasks,” he said. Last Friday President Kenyatta announced the retention of only six Cabinet Secretaries out of the 19 he worked with during his first term in office. He appointed three new individuals to his Cabinet.
