Today's Saturday Nation newspaper has focused on the ongoing political wrangles within IEBC. Ruto's political allies in Kenya Kwanza are expected to table a motion in the parliament that is seeking to kick out the four defiant IEBC commissioners led by Vice-chair Cherera. The other three hunted commissioners are Justus Nyangaya, Irene Masit and Francis Wanderi.

The newspaper has also paid it's tribute to the late Britain Monarch leader, Queen Elizabeth. The paper has highlighted the queen's legacy that she left behind during her numerous visits in Kenya.

2. The Star newspaper

Today's Star newspaper has highlighted the political mind game that Ruto used to successfully acquire the Senate and national assembly speaker positions. Ruto's Kenya Kwanza allies managed to win the speaker positions of both houses.

This will cut-short the political influence of the incoming opposition leadership under the Azimio coalition.

3. Taifa Leo

Today's Taifa Leo newspaper has based it's conversation towards the last military ceremony that was organized in honor of the outgoing president. The ceremony saw president Uhuru Kenyatta being pulled out from power as a way of accomplishing the military norms.

Apart from Uhuru's last military ceremony, the newspaper has also highlighted the movement of politicians from Azimio to Kenya Kwanza. Lately, Kisii ex-governor James Ongwae joined hands with the Kenya Kwanza leader, Ruto. The Kisii former governor was one of the top political elites within Azimio coalition.
