Big Problem Ahead With One Nominee NOT Ngilu or Balala
A very fascinating and almost unbelievable thing is happening in Kenyan politics.
Uhuruto are rapidly picking up a massive additional support base from people who voted for CORD in the just concluded presidential elections but now seem to have fallen in love with the JUBILEE government. Still it is too early in the life of this administration to draw any long term political conclusions. One of the reasons being that every political administration goes through the initial crisis phase or as some would crudely put it; the-shit-hitting-the-fan phase. This usually changes everything and is yet to happen to our honeymooners although the pressures of the office are beginning to mount rapidly.
Why this rapid rise in popularity? Young Kenyans say that this administration "has swag." Actually it can all be attributed to the new approach and way of doing things which has turned out to be the much needed fresh air in the stuffy room called Kenya that people have been waiting for, for such a long time.
Meanwhile it is emerging that there are major challenges and hurdles ahead for Uhuruto when the vetting process for their nominees commences in parliament next week. Everybody knows that the JUBILEE alliance has an overwhelming majority in parliament which would suggest that numbers will be used to quickly approve the president's nominees. This is true BUT that is NOT the issue. The big worrying issue for the duo are the facts and extremely embarrassing accusations that will be brought to light during the public vetting of the cabinet secretaries and in particular one of the nominees (NOT Ngilu or Balala) who can be linked to massive corruption mega deals in the past. But even more damaging is a claim that he was involved in a very recent fraudulent and very fishy deal according to CORD legislators in the vetting committee. What exactly did he do and why will it have such a huge impact on Kenyans? I discuss this in my latest raw notes published just a few minutes ago.
The said individual is said to be very close to Deputy president William Ruto.
Meanwhile speculation is rife about which individuals will fill in the last two cabinet slots. However Kumekucha has very credible information about who they are (discussed in my latest raw notes) and there is a problem once again because both are politicians.
This is bound to raise temperatures considerably in parliament and Kenyans should expect a very interesting two weeks to come with some heart-stopping revelations being made against some of the nominees.
