The political alliance between former One Kenya Alliance principal Musalia Mudavadi of the ANC party and deputy president William Ruto of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) continue to rattle the country’s political sphere.
The two leaders have struck an agreement to work together in the race to succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta come August this year when the country holds its general elections,
the pinnacle of their agreement being Ruto’s attendance at ANC party’s national delegates conference at Bomas of Kenya.
And now, former cabinet secretary Rashid Echesa has come out to break his silence on deputy president William Ruto’s newfound alliance with ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi.
The former CS states that the Luhya community is the biggest beneficiary in the alliance between the two leaders and the community is not interested in the individual government positions that its leaders will get.
At the same time, details have emerged indicating that Musalia Mudavadi will be appointed as the chief minister in Ruto’s government come August
in an arrangement that will see him have the same authority like cabinet secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i in Uhuru’s government. On top of that, Mudavadi is also set to receive atleast 30% of the government according to The Nation.
