The chairman of Thirdway Alliance party Miruru Waweru has challenged President Uhuru Kenyatta to nominate Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga to the Cabinet.
This is after details emerged that Uhuru and Raila, together with other four party leaders, have formed a super alliance to push for a referendum expected to be generated from the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI)
Reports on Nation indicate that the 'handshake' principals were working with Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Gideon Moi (KANU) and Ford-Kenya's Moses Wetang'ula.
The six political bigwigs have been calling for expansion of the Executive by creating posts of prime minister and two deputy prime ministers.
They argue by having more positions at the top, inclusivity will be achieved and, as a result, solve the problem of post-election violence, which they say arise from presidential contestations.
However, Waweru dismissed the 'super alliance' and asked the president to nominate his political allies to the Cabinet now, instead of waiting for 2022, if his objective was to achieve inclusivity in his government.
"If there is need for "inclusivity" as some want you to believe, why can't Uhuru just nominate Raila, Mudavadi, Kalonzo, Wetang'ula and Gideon Moi as Cabinet Secretaries now. The president has the power to do so now, not in 2022. Future owes man nothing!" the Thirdway Alliance boss tweeted on Tuesday.
Waweru and his party leader, Ekuru Aukot, have been spearheading constitutional amendments through their sponsored Punguza Mizigo Bill 2019.
National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale has also asked the handshake partners to push for inclusivity but warned it should not on the basis of ethnicity.
"If President Uhuru Kenyatta and the former PM Raila Odinga are genuine about inclusivity, it must be inclusivity that makes Kenya stable, with zero ethnicity," the Garissa Township MP tweeted on Tuesday.
