Cabinet Secretary for Information, Communications, and Technology (ICT) Joe Mucheru has described Raila Odinga as the country’s incoming president and would not mind serving in his government once President Uhuru Kenyatta leaves office.
Speaking to a local publication on his future after the end of Uhuru’s term, CS Mucheru, a former Google executive said he intends to go back to the business world, where the president fished him from.
”I’ll go back to business where I came from. If the incoming President (Raila Odinga) says I did a good job and wants me back, I will heed to the call,” he said.
Mucheru’s remarks come at a time top Cabinet Secretaries are coming out to openly express their confidence in Raila Odinga and have indicated their support for the former prime minister.
Other than the ICT Cabinet Secretary, his colleagues in the cabinet who have openly backed Raila Odinga are Peter Munya (Agriculture), Ukur Yatani (Treasury), Keriako Tobiko (Environment), Eugene Wamalwa (Defense), John Munyes (Petroleum and Mining, Cecily Kariuki ( Youth and Gender) and Raphael Tuju.
