Storm in Jubilee over cabinet appointments

Disappointed Jubilee governor discloses what next after cabinet announcement

Led by Tharaka Nithi governor Muthomi Njuki, the leaders expressed their disappointment, stating that they feel that they feel that their support for the Jubilee administration and Uhuru Kenyatta is undervalued.

“We cannot be a political stronghold that votes but when it comes to appointments, we are told our votes are insufficient,” Njuki lamented.

The governor disclosed that the turn of events would make them rethink their perceived automatic support in future elections.

His concerns were echoed by Woman Representative Joyce Korir and former senate aspirant Stacey Chepkemoi who were speaking at a separate event.

The leaders noted that they had nothing to show for their overwhelming loyalty and support which saw president Kenyatta get over 300000 votes.

“As disgruntled Jubilee leaders from the region, we are shocked that not even a single position of Cabinet Secretary (CS) or Principal Secretary (PS) was given to us.” Korir said.

"We now demand to be given a Cabinet slot as we are equal to the opportunities being shared,” she added.
