Wetangula, Mudavadi on crossroad, Kithure Kindiki discloses shocking details

Nithi Tharaka Senator Kithure Kindiki has disclosed that in an arrangement with Deputy President William Ruto, Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya colleague Moses Wetang'ula have a 70% vote projection from the 2.2 million Western ballot pool.

Prof Kindiki, who was one of the draftsman and caretakers of the Kenya Kwanza coalition agreement, said Mr Mudavadi and Mr Wetang'ula agreed to deliver votes from the Western region in order for them to be elected Prime Cabinet Secretary and Speaker of the National Assembly, accordingly.

"For Ford Kenya and the African National Congress, it was decided that if we reach a specific level of votes from areas where they have a large following based on opinion polls and previous elections, they can be given government responsibilities up to a certain proportion."

Kindiki went on to say that the same laws will apply to Pamoja African Alliance (PAA) leader Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi, who is running for Senate Speaker in DP Ruto's administration.

Kindiki further disclosed that the Kenya Kwanza coalition agreement clearly specifies out the responsibilities of DP Ruto's running mate, Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua, while noting that the document is a mixture of the beliefs of UDA, Ford Kenya, and ANC.
