The internal discord within the ruling coalition is intensifying, with Ugunja MP David Ochieng criticizing President William Ruto’s administration for its appointment choices.

Speaking in his constituency on June 14, Ochieng condemned the government for appointing individuals he deemed highly incompetent.

Ochieng, a member of the Kenya Kwanza coalition, argued that the current appointees are either inadequately qualified or selected based on tribal connections.

He also lamented that these appointees often perpetuate the issue by hiring their clansmen and people from their tribes.

He warned that this trend could jeopardize the country’s development agenda if it continues.

“We are choosing the least educated and most tribal individuals to run the government. We can’t grow like this. Without appointing the best, we won’t progress.

“When someone secures a job, they often give employment opportunities to their tribesmen. The country can’t function this way. We must appoint the best,” he stated.

He also explained his decision to speak out against the government he supported after the 2022 elections.

Ochieng emphasized that he could no longer remain silent while things deteriorated, as poor service delivery was significantly affecting citizens.

Notably, recent surveys have shown the Kenya Kwanza administration performing poorly, with many appointees, including cabinet secretaries, receiving low grades.

For example, in the recent Infotrak polls, poor governance was cited as one of the top three reasons for the country’s negative trajectory.

“Most respondents (63%) felt the country is headed in the wrong direction, with only 19% believing it is on the right track.

“Over the past year, Kenyans have increasingly expressed dissatisfaction with the country’s direction. In our previous polls from February 2023 and earlier, 62% and 53% respectively believed the country was on the wrong path,” the report stated.
