A cabinet secretary who is at loggerheads with MPs from his home-turf over the 2022 politics seems to have crafted a new strategy to stay relevant.
After publicly disagreeing with the lawmakers regarding who will succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta, the official has resorted to wooing MCAs to his side.
For the past one month, the Minister has been meeting ward reps as he strategizes on his next political move after falling out with the legislators.
Weeks ago, one of his aides told The Grapevine that his boss was planning to award a Christmas gift of Sh1 million each to some musicians in his backyard.
Many people interpreted this move as a plot to entice the artistes to his side as a way of reviving his dwindling political career.
Musicians in the community the official comes from play a big role in politics, those whose names are mentioned and praised in songs get an easy time when they seek to be elected.
