The move by president William Ruto to appoint former Transport and Infrastructure cabinet Secretary Michael Kamau as the chairman of the National Hospital Insured Fund has rubbed shoulders with key parties in the wrong way.
According to insider reports, affiliate parties of the Kenya Kwanza coalition have now been forced to intervene after the president William Ruto and his Deputy president allegedly began sidelining them in key appointments. The president allegedly appointed Mr Kamau without consulting any party.
According to Ali Haji who serves as the secretary general of Justin Muturi's Democratic Party, KKA affiliate parties have been following the president's style of appointments and are not happy.
"This could be the beginning of the end for the Kenya Kwanza coalition since affiliate parties are not happy with the appointments,"he said.
Another leader, Irungu Nyakera of the Farmer's Party of Kenya lamented the manner in which appointments are being made by the president.
The parties including Mudavadi's ANC party allegedly want to be included in national appointments as an equal member of the coalition.
