Deputy President William Samoei Ruto is busy signing up politicians to his Hustler Nation team ahead of August polls.
After over seven Cabinet Secretaries (CSs), Cabinet Assistant Secretaries (CASs), and Permanent Secretaries (PSs) resigning, DP Ruto has had the privilege to bring them on board.
Taking to Twitter, DP Ruto unveiled the new members who left Jubilee government to join politics ahead of February 9th deadline.
The resignations of CSs, PSs, and CASs comes days after a directive from the Independent Elective and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), civil servants seeking political positions have twenty-four hours to vacate their positions.
Devolution CS Charles Keter and his Petroleum and Mining counterpart John Munyes resigned Tuesday morning to seek political seats ahead of August polls.
Keter will be eyeing Kericho gubernatorial seat while John Munyes will seek Turkana top seat.
Petroleum CAS John Mosonik will be seeking to dethrone Bomet Governor and will battle with former County Boss Isaac Ruto of Chama cha Mashinani (CCM) party.
Ole Ntutu on the other side announced last year that he will contest for gubernatorial seat in Narok county on the United Democratic Alliance party.
Former Inspector of Police Joseph Boinnet had already resigned and ready to vie for Elgeyo Marakwet seat. The new entrance will boost DP Ruto’s chance to popularise his presidential bid.
