Ruto Rubs Shoulders With Key KKA Parties Following Latest Appointment of former CS to Top Job.

bPresident William Ruto's choice of Michael Kamau, a former cabinet secretary for transportation and infrastructure, to lead the National Hospital Insured Fund has caused friction with influential parties.

Affiliate parties of the Kenya Kwanza coalition have reportedly been compelled to step in after President William Ruto and his Deputy President allegedly started excluding them from important appointments. According to reports, the president chose Mr. Kamau without seeking input from anyone.

Ali Haji, the Democratic Party of Justin Muturi's secretary general, claims that KKA affiliate parties have been unhappy with the president's appointment methods.

Since affiliate parties are unhappy with the appointments, this could signal the beginning of the end for the Kenya Kwanza coalition, he said.

Irungu Nyakera, a different leader from the Farmer's Party of Kenya, bemoaned the way the president makes appointments.

Allegedly seeking to be treated equally with other coalition members in national appointments are the parties, notably Mudavadi's ANC party.
