Mutahi Ngunyi Accuses CS Rebecca Miano Of Undermining Ruto, Questions Her Loyalty



Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi has questioned the loyalty of Rebecca Miano, the Cabinet Secretary for CS Ministry of Investments, Trade and Industry to her boss President William Ruto.

In his assertion, Mutahi accuses the CS of using her position in the cabinet to outshine her master by not  amplifying Ruto’s successes and instead focusing on growing her image. “Why do Cabinet Ministers sell themselves instead of selling Ruto’s Agenda? This is a question for Rebecca Miano.” He paused on X.

Mutahi alludes that Cabinet Secretaries should focus on promoting Ruto’s agenda instead of self-promotion and that the presidency values loyalty and program promotion, “REMEMBER: The Presidency is a VERY jealous Institution. Sell his PROGRAMMES.” He said in a warning to CS Miano.

Kenya Kwanza administration has always adopted the one government approach where all CSs are expected to work on a close committed partnership with focus on realizing the main goals they sold to Kenyans dubbed The Plan. In this regard, all the state officials are expected to sell the shared vision of the government. The CSs given their high positions are mandated to be marketers of government policies and the President’s vision – not their own.

This is coming at a time when the president is facing harsh criticism from the public and opposition given the high cost of living and taxation burden that has squeezed the pockets of many Kenyans.

President Ruto who spent most time last year traversing the world, has significantly cut down on his foreign travels to travel the country to launch development projects in a bid to showcase the successes of his government.

Its unclear the roots of Mutahi’s accusations and his intentions. Before she was moved to her current position, Miano had ranked lowly in surveys while serving as the Cabinet Secretary of Investment, Trade and Industry, however, president Ruto upgraded her to the lucrative trade position.

Meanwhile, the CS is currently battling a suit in court where she’s been accused of procurement and financial irregularities during her tenure as the CEO of the Kenya Electricity Generating Company PLC (Kengen).

In an ouster petition filed at the High Court, a lobby group has accused the CS of spending Ksh94 billion of taxpayers’ money on white elephant power generation projects.

She is further accused of contributing to recent frequent national blackouts by commissioning unusable high voltage transmission lines and commissioning feasibility studies on two new power plants that never worked.

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has also been cited as an interested party in the case whose mention is slated for January 29, 2024 before Justice Lawrence Mugambi.
