Major comments on the recently concluded nominations for the East Africa Legislative Assembly (EALA) have been made by His Excellency Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua. Voting took place yesterday in both houses of Congress.
Legislators and Senators chose representatives from the governing UDA party and from Raila Odinga's Azimio affiliate parties. On Friday the 18th, the Second in Command made public remarks in which he claimed to have had a significant impact on the nominations by convincing Mt. Kenya leaders to vote for Kanini Kega despite the fact that Kega belonged to an opposing political camp.
Along with Winnie Odinga, Kennedys Kalonzo, and Suleiman Shahbal, the former Kieni MP Hon Kega was also approved. In his remarks, DP Gachagua claimed that Kega received so many votes for the EALA seat because of his personal intervention.
Furthermore, he claimed that Kanini insulted him and President Ruto during the campaign period, and that this is why he made such a move now that politics is over.
