Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has named Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka as part of his cabinet team should he win the August 9 elections.
Speaking at the Kenya International Convention Center (KICC) on Monday, May 16, the presidential aspirant noted that Musyoka would serve the role of Chief Cabinet Secretary and tasked him with the coordination of core government functions.
He also appointed several other leaders who will work under Musyoka including Kenneth Marende who will serve as the Senate Speaker and Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya who will take the role of Cabinet Secretary for National Treasury.
Peter Munya was nominated for the role of CS Agriculture and will also serve as the chairman in the Kenya Productive Sector while Ali Hassan Joho will serve as the CS for Lands
Joho was picked ‘to deal with the historical land injustices in the Coast region and around the borders’.
In his address where he also selected former Presidential aspirant Martha Karua as his running mate, Raila explained that the team had been chosen due to their energy and experience.
“Their commitment to Kenya to change efficiency and their energy speaks for itself,” he stated.
