The Speaker of the National Assembly Moses Wetangula is expected to make a ruling today on which formation between President William Ruto's Kenya Kwanza Alliance and Raila Odinga's Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance has the majority in the house.
The two camps have maintained that they have the numbers, with each proposing who should take the position of the leader of majority; Azimio settled on Ugunja MP Opiyo Wandayi and KKA settled on Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung'wah.
Speaking with NTV on Thursday before the day's parliament session, Langata member of parliament Felix Odiwor better known as 'Jalas or Jalang'o Mwenyewe' expressed his confidence that Wetangula will follow the law and announce Azimio as the majority based on the report from the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties.
"We should not be talking about which coalition has the majority, we only need to follow the law, and this law has affirmed that as Azimio, we are the majority. Our speaker is a lawyer, and he only needs to do what the law says. He should not favour the Kenya Kwanza side since he is a member when the law says Azimio has the most numbers."
