Kinywa was appointed when Uhuru ascended into power. Having spent most of his life working in government, he understands well the mechanics of the government more than anyone else.

Statehouse sources told the Nairobian that Kinywa has ‘president’s trust’ and that the cabinet secretaries have to pass through him first. This makes him one of the closest advisors of Uhuru.

Raphael Tuju

Raphael Tuju is the Jubilee secretary general. He has always been close to the president. Tuju has been termed as Cabinet Secretary without portfolio.

However, Tuju is one of the president advisors. Before BBI was declared unconstitutional, he stated; “The President is the President of the whole country. It is wise that he listens to his legal advisers before he talks about this. When it comes to the court, we have to navigate very carefully,”

Raila Odinga

Raila is one of the closest friends to President Uhuru Kenyatta. On March 9 2018, Uhuru and Raila shook hands. Something that shocked Kenyans.
