William Ruto, the President of Kenya, has stated that he will not include any member of the opposition in his administration, despite the fact that he has previously expressed an interest in cooperating with his political opponents who are members of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party, which is led by Raila Odinga.
The President emphasized that his Kenya Kwanza faction had won majorities in both the National Assembly and the Senate and was committed to carrying out the mandate they had received from the people of Kenya.
According to him, this can only be accomplished by ensuring that there is a significant gap between the government and the opposition. As a result, the opposition will be charged with the responsibility of keeping the current administration on its toes for the sake of accountability.
“We have accepted that we are not going to appoint any member of the opposition into government because we want a vibrant opposition. We want an opposition that will keep the government in check because we have nothing to hide and we want to run an accountable government,” he said.
On Friday in Naivasha, Ruto delivered these remarks as he started the Kenya Kwanza Parliamentary Group retreat.
