"Dishonest" Mudavadi And Wetangula Uphill Task To Delibver Western.

NC leader Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetang’ula will have to sweat it out to earn plum positions and 30 per cent share in a William Ruto-led government, even as Azimio la Umoja One Kenya leaning MPs slammed the power-sharing deal as dishonest.

A Kenya Kwanza coalition agreement deposited with the Registrar of Political Parties proposes Mr Mudavadi as prime cabinet secretary, with Mr Wetang’ula taking up National Assembly Speaker. The catch is they must deliver to Ruto 70 per cent votes from Western.

Yesterday, ANC Secretary-General Simon Gikuru confirmed the details of the deal and the expectation.

“The issue of being told to qualify your position is obviously the best thing in a situation such as this for the reason that we didn’t want to sit and say that – so and so, this party will get this percentage of government… we had to make sure that we first get our calculations right,” Mr Gikuru said in an interview on Citizen TV, adding that he had penned his signature on the deal.

“You can say that you will be this and this (prime cabinet secretary in the case of ANC) so long as you have worked very hard and you have delivered for the government,” he added.

The deal, he said, is a result of a framework that mandates Kenya Kwanza affiliated parties to win certain percentages from various regions to clinch the presidency.

“Our coalition is based on scientific calculations such that we know that for us to get this government into our hands, certain percentages of voters must be delivered in certain regions… we are working extremely hard to deliver,” said the ANC secretary general.
