Below are reviews of all top stories featured in this Sunday's major headlines.
Sh2 billion perks for Ruto's Allies
The Nation has cast doubt on whether president William Ruto is keen enough on his statements on whether his government will take austerity measures to tackle wastage of public money. Nation reports that the CASs who are yet to be appointed will be taking home about Sh17 million in monthly salaries, which translates to about Sh1 billion in the next five years.
Another story featured states that the Kenya Kwanza government is seeking the United States and the European Union to impose a travel ban on Azimio leader Raila Odinga due to his calls to engage in mass protests.
In God's Name
The standard reports that the continued engagement of the church in the political battles between President William Ruto and Azimio leader Raila Odinga puts a thin line between the good and the bad. It has also revealed that the future of the church that has taken sides in politics will be determined by the clergy who are engaging in political theatrics.
Another feature story is about the continuous increase in the cost of electricity. The Standard reports that recent comments from senior government officials cast doubt on whether the cost of electricity will be reduced soon. This is despite the many promises President Ruto made that he would reduce the cost of electricity once he took power.
Mahasla Bingwa wa Kutafuta Kazi
The Taifa Leo has reported that as President William Ruto continues to make various appointments to shape his government, people are raising queries on whether he will fulfill his promise of also remembering the hustlers he had promised to be part of his government. This comes to light because many of those who have been shortlisted for various jobs, including the latest CAS slots, are longtime career politicians who have served in various capacities before. Kenyans are keenly and closely watching him.
Also, Taifa Leo reports that Raila Odinga lost his job at the African Union, where he served as the higher representative for infrastructure in Africa, due to the firm stand the African Union takes on elections and a coup that led to his being stripped of his job.
