Leaked Details Emerge Of President Ruto's Alleged Plans On Uhuru's Senior Govt Official

There has been information revealed about the strained relationship between the new Kenya Kwanza Alliance administration and a senior government official who was chosen by president Uhuru Kenyatta to run for re-election in 2019.

According to State House sources, Dr. Patrick Njoroge, governor of the Central Bank of Kenya, has come under fire for his apparent lack of support for the new administration and his suggestions that he disagrees with certain of its economic goals.

The sources claim that the governor of Kenya's central bank will be removed from office one year before the end of his constitutionally allocated term, which is the following year.

A tribunal may soon be established to hold Dr. Njoroge responsible for allegedly failing to fulfill his duties as the head of CBK, according to a report.

It is said that Njoroge has not advanced under the new administration. Njoroge effectively did the opposite by preside over CBK's main organ to revise interest lending rates to over 8%, going against what President William Ruto had done the day before. Ruto had agreed to reduce Fuliza interest rates by 50%.
