MAYBE EACC Chairman Archbishop Eliud Wabukala should hear this. A senior official from the EACC has been overheard swearing that a former politician thought to be ranking highly in President Uhuru Kenyatta's list of preferred Cabinet nominees will not be cleared and appointed CS. The politician is seen as one of the few leaders who performed well during their tenure. But the EACC official, also interested in being elevated to a Cabinet Secretary, is said to have launched a vicious war against the politician, who comes from his home county. It is said the anti-graft agency official believes both of them cannot make it. What happened to professionalism?
THE relationship between Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko and his deputy Polycarp Igathe could be irreparable. Why? Well, sources whisper to Corridors that the no- nonsense Sonko has changed the locks of Igathe's office and allegedly fired his secretary. Those in the know say the flamboyant city politician is ready to go it alone and is not keen on the truce being spearheaded by politicians, mostly allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta. Call it Things Fall Apart! Igathe was to quit by the end of the month. But with Sonko determined to move on fast, it appears Igathe has no access to City Hall anymore.
A member of NASA’s People’s Assembly organising committee is now cursing why he accepted to take up the position, claiming some principals are out to frustrate their effort by constantly reneging on the swearing-in plot. The architect claimed their committee is in the dark after last week's cancellation of the Machako's People’s Assembly forum with no solid reason. He is blaming two NASA co-principals who he claimed are more interested in finding a truce with President Uhuru Kenyatta than pushing the opposition agenda.
NATIONAL Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale rarely has any kind words for his former party ODM. But the Garissa Township MP recently shocked onlookers in Parliament after he openly backed the Orange Party on the NASA House leadership row. Duale was heard speaking loudly, saying just like a company, political parties only get dividends depending on their share. This he said to imply that the other three affiliate parties cannot ride on ODM's back to get slots in the House when they don’t have the numbers. Well, it’s said that the truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it.
