President Ruto chairs first consultative meeting with Kenya Kwanza MCA’s

By Antynet Ford

President William Ruto today chaired a consultative meeting bringing together Members of County Assemblies from the Kenya Kwanza.

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and Council of Governors chairperson Anne Waiguru were among the leaders present.

This is the first meeting of the MCAs with the president to take stock of the government’s performance since the Kenya Kwanza administration got into office.

The meeting also some days before the planned United Democratic Alliance(UDA) grassroots elections set for April.

There are no significant party activities at the grassroots to signify party elections in April, giving credence to some reports that the polls may be delayed.

The elections were initially planned for December 9 but the exercise was postponed after a section of party leaders opposed proposed changes to introduce two deputy party leaders as a section of Mt Kenya region leaders insisted that Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua must be the only deputy party leader.

There is also push and pull about the fate of the proposed merger of Kenya Kwanza parties to create a single political machine for the 2027 polls.

Key Kenya Kwanza constituent parties including Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi’s ANC and Ford Kenya of National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetang’ula resisted the move.
