The 2022 presidential elections are just around the corner with several candidates expressing interest in taking over from President Kenyatta when his term comes to an end in the next few months.
Raila Odinga is one of the leading candidates who have registered their interest to replace President Kenyatta. However, his bid has been met with lots of challenges, especially in the Azimio la Umoja Coalition Party.
The move did not go down well with Kalonzo who announced his decision to revive his Presidential bid. However, it has now emerged that Kalonzo and Raila have struck a new deal that will see Kalonzo take the chief minister position.
Kalonzo has also been allocated two powerful Ministries, The Energy Docket and the Foreign affairs docket. Discussions are currently happening on whether to add him to the Devolution Ministry after he wanted the Transport and Infrastructure docket but was told it had been reserved for the people of Mt Kenya.
Meanwhile, share with us your thoughts on the matter kindly.
