Former Kiambu County Governor William Kabogo has threatened to ditch the Kenya Kwanza Alliance if the Deputy President does not detail what Mount Kenya region will gain from his government. This is after leakage of Kenya Kwanza power sharing deal which Kabogo thinks does not cater for Mount Kenya.
"Mimi sikuenda kwa William Ruto kutafuta kiti...nimempigia Ruto nikamwambia nataka afafanue hii maneno nimeona...nataka wakaaji wa mlima waweze kusaidika na serikali yake, kama haiwezekani sisi tutaondoka." He said.
Kabogo's sentiment come at a time William Ruto's influence in Mount Kenya is being heavily countered by President Uhuru Kenyatta. Losing the support of the former Kiambu Governor will be greatly detrimental to William Ruto's journey to State House.
According to the leaked power sharing deal, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula will be allocated 30% of all government appointments. FORD leader Moses Wetangula will also be appointed Speaker of the National Assembly. However, for this to happen the two leaders must deliver 70% of the Western vote to Kenya Kwanza. Maendeleo Chap Chap leader Alfred Mutua will also be allocated a Cabinet Secretary post.
