President William Ruto has allegedly been accused of being a one-man show during his first month in office, according to Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka.
On Friday, October 21, after Azimio met with La Umoja lawmakers, Kalonzo addressed the media and questioned the truthfulness of Ruto's assertions, claiming the head of state lacked the backing of a popularly elected cabinet.
Mashujaa's pledge to build 100 dams during his five years in office was one of Kalonzo's primary claims.
On October 20, the gathering at Uhuru Gardens was attended by wiper leaders.
"As head of state and government, the President is assisted in carrying out his duties by the Vice President and the Secretary of the Cabinet of Ministers.
According to Kalonzo, President Ruto's style of rule is reminiscent of previous world leaders who removed barriers to the establishment of autocratic regimes.
President Ruto's decision to reward his supporters, according to Kalonzo, was part of the plan to establish an autocratic government.
He cited examples of dictatorial regimes in Kenya's neighbors as evidence that the trend risked pushing Kenya to the point of ratifying costly decisions.
"Kenyans should be aware that personalized decision-making, combined with Ruto's obvious proclivity to promote loyalists and other 'yes men and women,' puts the country at significant risk of error and blunder.
"We've been there before as a nation, and we've also seen it cripple many of our neighbors, so we know," Kalonzo said.
