Nairobi, KENYA: Thirdway Alliance leader Ekuru Aukot has unveiled his shadow cabinet and senior advisers with the aim of putting president Uhuru Kenyatta’s government in check.

Addressing the media on Thursday in Nairobi Aukot, said that his cabinet appointment comprises of people without questionable integrity and who are not from the previous public service positions.

“You will not see any recycled appointees in this Cabinet … you will see well educated Kenyans with a fresh train of thoughts,” Aukot said.

Aukot who was a presidential candidate during the 2017 elections, said that they are the government in waiting and ready to serve at all times, citing that the cabinet will change the tone and character of Kenya politics.
