President Williams Ruto Has Adopted This Approach To Keep Kenya Kwanza Team Close

President William Ruto has adopted a consultative approach to organizing the Kenya Kwanzaa Union to gain the support of parliamentarians.

Dr Ruto has opened the door for coalition leaders. Since the August 9 general election, it has held four Parliamentary Commission meetings, reportedly allowing members of parliament to provide input on government decisions.

Saturday Nation revealed that when MPs had serious issues to decide, Dr Ruto called a meeting to discuss it with them. He also conducts regular evening calls with MPs to ask them about challenges in their constituencies and how the government can address them.

In an interview with the Nation last Saturday, Kenyan MP Kwanza admitted that the head of state spends a lot of time talking on the phone. They are said to sometimes call for warnings against lawmakers who make statements that undermine their administration.

"The president calls us and sometimes he uses that opportunity to warn some people not to do things he cares about. "He recently called a colleague from Rift Valley to ask why he started talking like he did during the previous administration," he said.

Gatundu South MP Jibril 'GG' Kagombe said Dr Ruto was calling randomly to ask the opinion of elected leaders from different regions.

The head is very consultative. He cannot do anything without consulting us. It invites us to tell the government that it wants to do something, what do we think about it?
