Kemi Badenoch, a British-Nigerian member of parliament, was appointed to the UK prime minister Liz Truss’ cabinet on Tuesday.
Recall that Badenoch ran for the position of British Prime Minister as a Conservative Party member and finished in the top five in July.
In 2017, Kemi Badenoch became a Member of Parliament (MP) for Saffron Walden and was elected to the Commons. She has also been vocal about issues like “anti-woke” and “gender-neutral toilets.”
The Treasury, Foreign Office, and Home Affairs would be the first “major offices of state” in British history to have no white employees in the top cabinet positions, according to Truss’s current appointments.
