After the coalition power-sharing pact was revealed, former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo threatened to abandon Kenya Kwanza.
On Thursday, May 12, during a rally in Kiambu County, Kabogo said that he had phoned Deputy President Wiliam Ruto to speak more about resource sharing.
The coalition agreement lodged with the Registrar of Political Parties, according to the Tujibebe Wakenya party head, contains no details on how Mt Kenya will profit from DP Ruto’s administration should he win the presidency in August.
The interests of the UDA, ANC, and Ford Kenya were properly captured in the agreement, but not those of Mt Kenya, he said.
“I’d like to send you a message.” I’ve seen the UDA, Ford Kenya, and ANC coalition agreement. The only thing I ask is that you divide resources according to population to guarantee that the Mt Kenya region receives its fair share of government revenue.
Tharaka Nithi Senator Prof. Kithure Kindiki drew the power-sharing agreement before submitting it to the Registrar of Political Parties on Sunday night to meet the deadline.
The Kenya Kwanza alliance is made up of three founding members: Musalia Mudavadi’s ANC, Moses Wetang’ula’s Ford Kenya, DP’s UDA, and other parties, according to the coalition agreement.
William Ruto’s UDA party will produce the presidential candidate and the running mate.
If Ruto wins the general elections on August 9 and enters government, Mudavadi will be appointed Prime Cabinet Secretary.
The accord also guarantees Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula and his Ford Kenya party the position of National Assembly Speaker.
Musalia and Mudavadi have also been guaranteed a 30% share of Ruto’s government, which includes positions in all ministries and government parastatals. However, they must deliver 70 percent of Western Kenya votes to the Kenya Kwanza.
