Mutula Kilonzo Jnr has finally shed light why Kalonzo Musyoka is afraid of taking Raila's post. Kalonzo Musyoka had been given a post of Chief Minister in Raila's cabinet. With the post, Kalonzo would have a powerful say in all government projects. He would be elevated and above ordinary cabinet secretaries. Every CS would brief him on various projects.
Mutula Kilonzo Jnr says Kalonzo does not want the post as it is grossly exaggerated. He says the Chief Minister is just a fancy name for a cabinet secretary. Mutula fears that Kalonzo might be fired or reshuffled once Raila Odinga assumes power. Unlike the deputy president position, the chief minister position is not protected by the constitution.
While Mutula Kilonzo concerns might be valid, Kalonzo is increasingly running out of political options. UDA Secretary General Veronica Maina yesterday said should Kalonzo join Kenya Kwanza, he should not expect any top tier executive position. If Raila nominates another person for the proposed post, Kalonzo will find himself bargaining for ordinary CS position from either coalition.
