Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina has proposed that the former Member of Parliament for Kieni Constituency Kanini Kega should be rewarded with a slot at the East African Legislative Assembly.
Taking it to his social media, the legislator praised Kega while recognizing his continued support for Azimio even when things became hotter. "EALA should be a soft landing spot for my brother in Mount Kenya," wrote Ledama.
Kega was one of the Azimio loyal heavyweights who fell victim to the UDA or the hustler wave in Mount Kenya.
Speaking yesterday to the media, the Jubilee party secretary general and former Ndaragwa MP Jeremiah Kioni stated that the party would get one slot for EALA within Azimio. Kenya usually sends 9 legislators to the regional assembly.
UDA as the majority party is set to get five slots. This will leave Azimio with four slots that will be shared among parties. Ealier reports allged that Kioni and formed Wajir Woman Representative Fatuma Gedi are eyeing the lucrative seats.
Basing on pay grade, an EALA slot is more powerful that the regular N/A position.
