Prime Minister Raila Odinga finally seemed to have had his way — transferring his critic and proponent of ‘No’ campaign William Ruto to the marginal Ministry of Higher Education. He let Ruto swap positions with Aldai MP Sally Kosgei, one of the few Rift Valley MPs who have consistently supported him even as the majority appeared to drift to Ruto’s side. In a similar fashion he replaced Energy Assistant Minister Charles Keter, a Ruto ally and Belgut MP, with Kiprono Magerer. The youthful Kipkelion MP, like Dr Kosgey did not follow the Rift Valley MPs’ exodus towards Ruto’s fold following Raila’s disagreements with the Eldoret North MP over handling of post-election suspects, Mau Forest evictions, reversed suspension from Cabinet, and defiance of the party’s position on the Proposed Constitution. Ruto told a local radio station last night he would be taking his new duties this morning. In what could be hilarious to many Kenyans, Ruto ends up in one ministerial field and working block with Education Minister Sam Ongeri with whom Raila suspended him. President Kibaki reinstated the two shortly after the suspension.
