  • President William Ruto’s loyalists were, on Friday, December 16, rewarded with positions at the country’s power distributor.

    Among those elected to the Kenya Power board were lawyers Joy Brenda Masinde (daughter of Televangelist Bishop JB Masinde), Duncan Ojwang, and Logan Hambrick, who played a key role in the election of President William Ruto.
