Kenya Kwanza MPs Warned of What Ruto Will Start Doing Once They Finish Helping Him

Kenya Kwanza MPs should not think that the current close relationship between them and President William Ruto will last forever, they've been told.

This follows revelations by the Saturday Nation that Ruto has been very close to his MPs, to an extent of personally calling them to consult them.

But political analyst Masibo Lumala says that with time, all this will die off and the President will revert to doing things on his own without their input.

The Moi University don holds that Ruto is only consulting them at the moment because he needs them, and will stop when he gets what he wants.

“When you are just beginning, first you need to be sure that your agenda in Parliament will go through. He was forming a government. Cabinet Secretaries were to be vetted and Principal Secretaries were to be vetted and then approved. I think the President at this stage needs to be in touch with MPs so much and there is a supplementary budget on the way,” the commentator told the same paper.

For him, the relationship and it's finer details like personal phonecalls cannot be sustained for long and will be dropped at the right time.

“While it might work for him because he is sure of loyalty, sure of building a team he can keep at the top without divisions, but is it sustainable? For how long can you do this? How do you maintain separations of power between the Executive and the Legislature when the Executive is constantly maintaining legislators?” he is quoted.
