President Uhuru Holds Private State House Meeting To Counter ‘Earthquake Coalition’


The President hosted leaders from Western Kenya, on Tuesday, January 25, in a move that is largely seen as a way to counter Deputy President William Ruto’s influence in the region.

Notably, the President met the Western Kenya delegation led by Devolution Cabinet Secretary, Eugene Wamalwa, where he highlighted the development projects undertaken by his administration in the region.

He assured the leaders of the government’s commitment to ensure all ongoing development projects in the region are completed as scheduled.

During the meeting attended by CS Wamalwa and Governors Wycliffe Oparanya (Kakamega), Wycliffe Wafula Wangamati (Bungoma), Wilbur Ottichillo (Vihiga), and Sospeter Ojaamong (Busia), the leaders thanked the President for his commitment to the region.

Further, they thanked the President for the various development projects which they noted had transformed the lives and wellbeing of the people of Western Kenya.

Political pundits opine that the meeting was a move by Uhuru to mobilize the leaders to support the Azimio La Umoja movement following the alliance between Mudavadi and DP Ruto.

After Mudavadi and Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetangula agreed to work with the Deputy President, the trio announced joint campaigns which will kick off in Nakuru.
