Sabina Chege: Why I chose to support Kenya Kwanza

The Nominated MP has faced rejection and backlash from Azimio after she shifted allegiance to Kenya Kwanza.

On May 30, Azimio resolved to replace Chege as the National Assembly Deputy Minority Whip with Embakasi West MP Mark Mwenje.

Chege has also been caught in the middle of Jubilee wrangles, with her faction promoting her to the Party leader position, while Jeremiah Kioni's faction ejecting her from the Party.

She now wants the Speaker of the National Assembly, Moses Wetangula, to consider her intentions before making the final decision on whether or not she remains Deputy Minority Whip.

In the spirit of reconciliation which was this year's theme, Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi also urged leaders who are against the Housing Fund to support it in order to 'uplift the poor.'

"Reconciliation means sacrifice to uplift those that are down. When the president says we need to provide shelter (through the housing fund) to those that need it and we deny them, then we are like vultures," said Mudavadi.

Additionally, Attorney General Justin Muturi also lauded leaders who have set aside their political needs and chose to support the government as it delivers its mandate.

"The last prayer breakfast was interesting. It was very difficult to sit at that table because people were pretending to talk to each other, but some of you have embraced the reconciliation and here you are," said Muturi.
