President Ruto Rewards Loyalists Handsomely After a Top Meeting at State House

On Thursday morning, His Excellency the Head of State president William Ruto conducted a top meeting of the United Democratic Alliance movement Party Parliamentary Group.

Details of the meeting have now emerged with sources revealing that the Head of State has rewarded his top loyalists with plum positions in the parliamentary departmental committees.

Even as he awarded them, he is said to have warned them against going against the agreed list, citing the examples of former Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter and his Moiben counterpart Silas Tiren, who were kicked out of key committees after they attempted to defy the President by fielding themselves as chairpersons without the approval of the parliamentary group.

Among those expected to take up very powerful departmental committee chairperson positions is Kiharu constituency Member of Parliament Honourable Ndindi Nyoro.

He will be given a top dickey out of his resilience as well as closeness to His Excellency the Head of State president William Ruto.

However, it has emerged that a section of Kenya Kwanza Members of Parliament from the Mt Kenya region protested at the list, terming it skewed. Some of them, who spoke to Nation in confidence, said the list did not achieve regional balancing.
