Kenya Kwanza unveils Senate, National Assembly leadership

Kenya Kwanza coalition has picked Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwah as the National Assembly Majority Leader.

Unveiling the list during a parliamentary group meeting in Naivasha, President William Ruto announced that South Mugirango MP Sylvanus Osoro will be the Majority Whip.

Kilifi North MP Owen Baya will be the Deputy Leader of Majority. Marsabit County Woman Member to National Assembly, Naomi Waqo will deputise Osoro.

At the Senate, Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot will take up the position of Majority Leader.

Cheruiyot will be deputised by Nakuru Senator Tabitha Karanja.

Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale will occupy the Majority Whip position with Samburu Senator Lelegwe Ltumbesi as his Deputy.

The unveiling of Kenya Kwanza parliamentary leadership comes just after Azimio announced its house leadership line up.

Both political formations claim to have the majority in both the National Assembly and Senate.

During the Azimio parliamentary group meeting in Athi River, Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka maintained that Azimio is the legal majority side in the National Assembly.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the Azimio OKA coalition party is legally and legitimately the majority coalition in the National Assembly. This is not a matter for determination by any individual or office. It is simple arithmetic,” he said.

Ruto on the other hand says United Democratic Alliance (UDA) has the majority in the National Assembly.

“Our friends on the other side will choose the leaders of the minority because they are the minority. They just have to live with the reality. Let us not create a contest where there is none,” Ruto stated.
