Coast region must tread carefully in President William Ruto ’s succession battle after the expiry of his two term tenure.
East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) Member of Parliament (MP) Hassan Omari Sarai warned that when Ruto’s two term tenure comes to an end it won’t be business as usual in the country’s political scene.
He pointed out that people who contributed few votes during last year’s general election are enjoying the fruits of the Kenya Kwanza administration.
“The era of carrying people on our shoulders comes to an end with Ruto’s administration,” he warned.
Sarai added when Ruto ’s tenure comes to an end there will be no more carrying people on the shoulders.
He was speaking during the launch of economic empowerment for Amplified youths group organized by United Democratic Alliance [UDA] party Mombasa chapter held at Young Men’s Christian Association [YMCA] center in Mvita constituency, Mombasa County.
The EALA MP insisted they will also demand to be carried on other people’s shoulders.
Sarai who is UDA National Vice Chairman and who was flanked nominated Senator Miraj Abdillahi Abdulrahman stated that they are different from those who came and signed to join Kenya Kwanza administration before last’s polls.
He said they are already strategizing on the succession race in President William Ruto’s administration.
“Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi and Speaker of the National Assembly Moses Wetangula are currently enjoying government appointments despite contributing less votes during last year’s general election,” he pointed out.
The EALA MP said their agreement was simply to ensure President Ruto wins last year ‘s polls compared to those now enjoying the cream of the Kenya Kwanza administration.
