President Ruto appoints Rashid Echesa to a new gov’t job

President William Ruto selected former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa as chairperson of the Kenya Water Towers Agency Board on Friday, May 19.

The statement was made in a Gazette Notice that was published on May 19th.

Echesa was appointed to the board for a three-year term.

“I, William Samoei Ruto, President of the Republic of Kenya and Commander-in-Chief of the Defence Forces, appoint Rashid Echesa to be the Chairperson of the Kenya Water Towers Agency Board, for a period of three (3) years, with effect from the 19th May 2023,” read the notice in part.

As a result, Ruto cancelled the appointment of former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s appointee Robert Kariuki to the board in 2022.

In the 2022 General Election, Echesa was a major member of Ruto’s campaign staff.

In Western Kenya, the previous CS was a member of the Kenya Kwanza campaign team.
