President-elect William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza has now nominated the alliance co-principal and Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula to the position of Speaker of the National Assembly.

This is according to Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader, and fellow Kenya Kwanza co-principal, Musalia Mudavadi who made the announcement on Saturday during the alliance’s meeting in Karen, Nairobi.

Mudavadi said all the coalition principals had agreed to pick Wetangula for the position as had been agreed before the August General Elections.

“I have the singular honour and privilege on behalf of Kenya Kwanza to announce that we have unanimously agreed that the Speaker nominee for the National Assembly for the Kenya Kwanza coalition shall be Moses Masika Wetangula, Papa wa Roma,” said Mudavadi.

The outcome of the August polls results saw the Ford Kenya party chief scoop majority of the seats in his Bungoma backyard on top of successfully defending his Senate position.

“I told you that those coup plotters won't push me from Ford-Kenya, I promised them that they must be defeated in these elections which has happened, their coup died on arrival,” Wetangula said after results declaration on August 12, 2022.

Following President-elect William Ruto's victory at the August polls, Wetangula and all the Kenya Kwanza leaders are staring at power-sharing deals if Ruto is sworn into office.

Mudavadi was promised the position of Prime Cabinet Secretary if the Kenya Kwanza managed to clinch the presidency.
