DP Ruto vows to partner with Civil Society to enhance Governance

Deputy President William Ruto now says Kenya Kwanza alliance will partner with the Civil Society to enhance governance if elected in August. 

The Deputy President said he was looking forward to working with the Civil Society to ensure civil servants are held accountable.

Dr Ruto said the country stood to benefit immensely if the Civil Society was allowed to operate freely devoid of government interference.

“I don’t want the Civil Society to be our friends, I want them to be our partners, friendship brings a relationship that undermines your clarity on how to hold us to account,” He said.

The Deputy President spoke during a consultative forum with members of the Civil Society in Karen, Nairobi County.

Kandara MP Alice Wahome echoed Dr Ruto’s sentiments saying they will not fight the civil society as has been the norm in previous governments.

“The Kenya Kwanza Government will be different, if you look at our women’s charter and the soon-to-be-launched manifesto you will know you have a partner,” She said.

Nominated MP Sicily Mbarire said the Kenya Kwanza administration will ensure affirmative action programs like Access to Government Procurement Opportunities (AGPO) are fully implemented to benefit the targeted groups.

Wanjiru Gikonyo of the Civil Society Organisation (CSO) called on the Kenya Kwanza Alliance to involve all the relevant players in the decision-making process should they take over government.

“Should Kenya Kwanza ascend to power, let it be a Government that understands the reality that we are in a poor economic state,” She said.
