New Ford Kenya head Eugene Wamalwa and former Speaker Kenneth Marende warned  President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto to ensure every ethnic group is represented in government.
The Amani coalition boss said the burden of ensuring that Kenyans are
united rests with the government. He gave an example of appointment of
ambassadors and principal secretaries where, he said, Central Kenya
and Rift Valley regions took the lion’s share.
On the other hand,Central Organisation of Trade Unions
secretary-general Francis Atwoli claimed that he was being fought by
the United Republican Party (URP) wing of the Jubilee administration,
because he had exposed a scheme to loot the workers’ pension fund.
In a rejoinder deputy President William Ruto defended the government’s
record saying although it had faced challenges in the beginning, it
was determined to unite Kenyans and to ensure every corner of the
country develops.
Ruto disclosed that Jubilee government would develop the entire
country without bias. “We have always said all Kenyans have a right to
serve in the Government. Those who lost or won in the last polls have
an equal responsibility to play in developing the country,” he said in
response to Amani leader Musalia Mudavadi, who had called for
inclusiveness of all Kenyans in the Government.
He castigated CORD for calling for a referendum saying they vehemently
fought for the Constitution and even rejected calls to amend sections
of the draft
