William Ruto's Cabinet Secretary Alice Wahome has received a blow after UDA allies from his home county said they don't see her work as the Water CS.
Deputy president Rigathi Gachagua is allegedly playing the role of water CS. According to Muranga Women Representative Betty Maina, she was talking to DP on matters dealing with irrigation.
CS Wahome was earlier attacked by Kenya Kwanza leaders in Murang'a for not supporting a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) candidate in the concluded Kandara by-election.
Speaking at Yakarengo Primary School in Mathioya Constituency where she led the distribution of relief food, Maina maintained that food security requires the Ministry of Water to upscale irrigation farming " but I will not talk, cannot talk to the current CS”.
Maina said Murang’a’s drinking and irrigation water needs are best left to Mr Gachagua to deal with.
She explained that her differences with Wahome arose from the January 5 Kandara by-election.
Their war has now moved onto social media where their supporters have been trading barbs.
