Uhuru’s skewed cabinet nominees to bolster push for secession, says MP
Likuyani MP Enock Kibunguchy has said that part of the cabinet nominees unveiled by President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday will bolster the resolve to push for secession by majority of Kenyans who feel sidelined.
Kibunguchy (Ford Kenya) said that the nine cabinet nominees named by the president last Friday leaves out majority of Kenyans and considers only two regions.
“Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka must be sworn in as the people’s president on January 30 because Uhuru has clearly showed that he is a president of a small section of the country,” he said.
He said the nominees do not meet the two thirds gender requirements.
Speaking at Likuyani grounds on Monday, Kibunguchy asked Water and Irrigation Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa to rethink his engagement with Jubilee after he and his environment counterpart Judy Wakhungu were left out of the nine cabinet nominees.
President Kenyatta on Friday named six of serving cabinet secretaries and named three other fresh nominees in his first part of reconstituting the government.
Head of Presidential Strategic Communications Unit Manoah Esipisu on Saturday said that the CSs who had not been mentioned remain in office.
Kibunguchy said that it was high time Wamalwa realizes that Jubilee has its owners and join the rest of Luhyas in NASA.
“He was told that Nairobi has its owners when he said he wanted to be governor. They are now telling him that Jubilee has owners,” he said.
Kibunguchy said that Wamalwa’s attempts to split the Luhya community for personal gains will fail as isolation of Western region by successive regimes has solidified the community in opposition.
Kibunguchy at the same time asked the government to rethink the decision to ban night travel over increased road carnage.
He said that night travels were not to blame for the accidents adding that behavior by drivers and corruption among police officers were the main causes of death on Kenyan roads.
