President Uhuru Kenyatta is set to handsomely reward Raphael Tuju should the Supreme Court uphold his victory on Friday.

Tuju who is the Jubilee Secretary General is set to be rewarded with a cabinet post according to the Nation.

Tuju has been an integral part of Kenyatta’s team since his appointment to the Jubilee secretariat as Secretary General in March.

He has been instrumental in the Jubilee team overseeing its primaries in April and subsequent victories in both the Senate and Parliament where the party has the majority after the August 8 polls.

The Secretary General is seen as a key ally and member of Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto’s inner circle.

Tuju’s new role is touted to be key in ensuring the Jubilee manifesto is implemented.

The former Foreign Affairs minister and Rarieda is also set to chair parliamentary group meetings providing the crucial link between the Legislature and the Executive.

Already, Kenyatta and Ruto have started rewarding their loyalists, some of whom paid the price for supporting the two by losing in the August polls.

Kenyatta chaired a meeting of all Jubilee elected officials at State House where they came up with their line-up that will push the legislative agenda for the next five years should the Supreme Court rule in his favour.

The Senate Chief Whip’s post is expected to go to Susan Kihika (Nakuru) and deputised by Irungu Kang’ata (Murang'a).
