Wednesday will see the first gathering of Kenya Kwanza Alliance leaders chosen in the just-concluded general election, which will include governors, National Assembly members, women representatives, and senators.
The meeting will take place in the Deputy President's Residence in Karen, according to a communication to the media from United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Secretary General Veronica Maina.
"The First Caucus of Leaders Elected to Serve in the Senate, the National Assembly, and all Elected Governorships" will be held on Wednesday, August 17, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. at the residence of the deputy President, according to Maina. The President-elect, His Excellency Dr. William Ruto, and the deputy President-elect, His Excellency Rigathi Gachagua.
Deputy President-elect Rigathi Gachagua and President-elect William Ruto will soon organize a regional inaugural caucus meeting for all county Assembly members chosen by the Kenya Kwanza Coalition.
The event happens the day after Ruto was named the winner of the election by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
After winning a majority of the seats in the recently concluded elections, William Ruto will probably be in charge of the Senate.Comparatively, Raila Odinga's Azimio La Umoja One Kenya won 23 senatorial votes, while Kenya Kwanza won 24.
Azimio la Umjoa, which has 162 members as opposed to Kenya Kwanza's 159, dominates the National Assembly.
Since four elections have been delayed and twelve nominated seats remain vacant, no coalition has an outright majority of 180 members.
