President William Ruto's cabinet appointments have painted the picture of a head of state who is keen to have a firm grip on the country's political front ahead of the 2027 general elections where he is expected to seek his second and final term.
The president's lineup in the cabinet was dominated by politicians like former Gatundu South constituency member of the national assembly Hon Moses Kuria, Aisha Jumwa, Salim Mvurya, prime cabinet secretary Musalia Mudavadi, Ababu Namwamba among other leaders.
And now, according to sources, the president is planning to build one of the largest political outfits in the country by collapsing the Kenya Kwanza alliance constituent parties into one party akin to the Jubilee party in 2017.
To kick off the plans, president William Ruto and Cabinet nominee Moses Kuria are planning to merge the Chama Cha Kazi (CCM) party with the United democratic alliance (UDA) party. Negotiations are said to be currently said to be ongoing with the agreement expected to be sealed.
