Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has come out to slam President William Ruto for making more promises to Kenyans during this year's Mashujaa Day celebrations which took place on Thursday, October 20th, at Uhuru Gardens.
Speaking to the media on Friday, Kalonzo who attended the event, said that Ruto's speech was good, but went on to question who is making such decisions which the president has been making since his cabinet is not yet in place.
"The pronouncements the president did yesterday pile on others, yet the constitution decrees that the Executive which is headed by the president is made up by the president, the deputy president and the rest of the cabinet."
"The constitution does not give way to the president to impose decisions to the country just because he is the president. As Kenyans know, Ruto has no cabinet. The shortlisted principal secretaries are also going through a vetting process."
"As believers of the law and the constitution, we are concerned of the trajectory the new administration is taking, and with the absence of the cabinet, we are compelled to ask who is making such decisions."
The cabinet secretaries nominated by the president have been facing the National Assembly Committee on Appointments since Monday October 17th, with the last batch expected to be vetted on Saturday, October 22nd.
