Kabogo Threatens to Ditch Kenya Kwanza Coalition Over power-sharing Deal Which Has Already Been Made Public.
The ANC and Ford Kenya have emerged as clear winners in the power-sharing agreement.
Musalia Mudavadi’s Amani National Congress, for example, will be named Prime Cabinet Secretary, if Ruto wins the election.
Ford Kenya, on the other side, will nominate the Speaker of the National Assembly under the Kenya Kwanza power-sharing agreement.
Furthermore, if DP Ruto is elected president, both the ANC and Ford Kenya will have a 30 percent stake in the national government.
Former Kiambu County Governor William Kabogo has threatened to leave the Kenya Kwanza Alliance barely hours after the coalition’s power-sharing agreement was made public.
The power-sharing deal will therefore leave William Ruto with 70% of the government which he will be expected to share with the other parts of the country.
However, the power deal has now triggered jitters, especially in Mt Kenya Region over what the region will get from the Kenya Kwanza.
It is reported that Mt Kenya could be left out of the power-sharing deal.
Kabogo Threatens to Ditch Kenya Kwanza
Addressing the public on Thursday in Kiambu, Tujibebe party leader William Kabogo said if Deputy President William Ruto’s power structure is not revised to include the people of the Mt. Kenya region, he will leave the Alliance
“When I met the deputy president in Dubai, I told him I don’t want anything from his government. What I asked him is to ensure the interest of the Mt Kenya region is well captured in his government,” he said.
“We have seen the details of his agreement with other members of the coalition. If that is not rectified to capture the interest of the people living in Mt Kenya then we will have to leave.”
