Leaked Ruto, Mudavadi, Wetangula power-sharing deal cause chaos in Kenya Kwanza

by Amos Khaemba

The leaked details on the power-sharing deal with the Kenya Kwanza alliance have begun to cause jitters, especially in the Mt Kenya region.

Ex-Kiambu Governor William Kabogo has come out lamenting that the leaked agreement does not some of the clauses agreed upon between his Tujibebe Wakenya Party and other Kenya Kwanza affiliate parties.

“I did not go to Ruto to look for any seat. I told him during our Dubai meeting that I wanted equal distribution of resources. Resources should be shared according to the human population, and he agreed,” said the Kiambu gubernatorial aspirant.

Kabogo revealed that he has already expressed his disappointment to the Deputy President William Ruto

concerning that clause not captured in the agreement.

“I have called Ruto and asked him to explain what I have seen in the agreement because all I have seen is how positions will be shared in the Kenya Kwanza government should Ruto be elected the fifth president,” Kabogo added.

The flamboyant politician who is also the party leader of the newly formed Tujibebe Wakenya Party threatened to quit the Kenya Kwanza alliance if the issues raised ate not addressed.

“Should Kenya Kwanza fail to meet our demands, we shall bolt out. But, even if we leave 10 of us, one day you will realize what I noticed and what my fears were,” Kabogo started.

Threats by Kabogo come after details emerged on how Kenya Kwanza intends to share positions should it form the next government after the August 9, elections.

According to the elaborate primary document allegedly drafted by Tharaka Nithi senator Kithure Kindiki, the running mate slot is also reserved for UDA, particularly for the vote-rich Mt Kenya region.

Apart from the running mate slot, the agreement does not talk much about what Mt Kenya will get if Ruto secures victory in the August polls.

In the agreement, Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi will be named the Prime Cabinet Secretary whereas his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetang’ula will be appointed the Speaker of the National Assembly.

Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart would also be allocated 30 % of all government appointments including Cabinet positions.

On the other hand, Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi of the Pamoja Alliance Party (PAA) has been promised the Senate Speaker slot but on the condition that he brings at least 50 percent of the total presidential votes cast in his county.
