Thirdway Alliance leader Ekuru Aukot has taken his plans of forming a shadow cabinet a step further. The self-proclaimed opposition leader has called for applications for 22 positions of shadow cabinet secretaries and senior advisers.
This comes just days after the former presidential candidate announced plans to unveil a shadow cabinet in the coming weeks.
Aukot has said those interested in the slots are required to send their CVs to firstname.lastname@example.org before or on January 30.
He noted that the Shadow Cabinet will comply with article 130 of the constitution. The article observes that the composition of the national executive shall reflect the regional and ethnic diversity of the people of Kenya.
“We are getting ready to run government. President Uhuru Kenyatta must know there are alternative ways of running the government to the satisfaction of Kenyans,” said Aukot yesterday.
Aukot, who emerged third in the presidential race with 21,333, said his party will play politics of transformation as anyone forming a government must have an opposition.
“We are happily at home with our opposition role. We shall play it effectively, even against 10 presidents including Uhuru,” he added.
