Kenyans Told Ruto's Clever Plan Of Penetrating Kalonzo's Ukambani Region

Details have now emerged on how President William Ruto is trying to penetrate former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka's Ukambani backyard in an attempt to strip him off as the region's political kingpin.

In a statement via Nation on Twitter, in what is viewed as a political threat, unlike former President Uhuru Kenyatta's government where the region had only one Cabinet Secretary; Monica Juma, President Ruto has given Musyoka's region three Cabinet Secretaries including Alfred Mutua, Peninah Malonza and also retaining Monica Juma in his government.

The statement further had it that President Ruto's move to award the region with three Principal Secretaries- Teresia Mbaika Malokwe (Cabinet Affairs), Veronica Mueni Nduva (Gender and Affirmative Action) and Jonathan Mueke (Sports and Arts), is being viewed as a plot by the Head of State to have Ukambani rally behind him as he seeks his second and final term in 2027.

According to the statement, with all those slots that the region have been given by Ruto, then Kalonzo is likely to be stripped off his political powers in the region with him being highly poised to lock horns with Ruto for the top seat in 2027.
