“The president cannot reward all party loyalists.” UDA chairman Muthama speaks.

Honorable Johnson Muthama, the ex-senator, who  is currently the UDA chairman has broken his silence on the possible reason he missed a cabinet slot. He was one of the close allies of President William Ruto and it was expected that he could get a cabinet level position. But in his take of the matter, the former Senator stated that not everyone could get the few positions in government.

He highlighted that if everyone who supported William Ruto’s presidential bid was to be rewarded, then the president would have to create a million positions. “We are 50 million Kenyans. Putting into consideration who voted for the UDA is 50 plus 1 percent. So 49 percent we assume they did not vote for UDA. So that means to accommodate everybody who went to vote for UDA will qualify to have very serious positions. That means we will need to have 25 million positions,” Muthama said during an interview on TV47 Sunday.

He argued that he is among those who work hard for the love of the country and not just to climb in the top country’s positions. “Of that matter, if you take the number that voted for UDA of about 7.2 million people, you need that number of CSs. There are those who work for others to benefit. There are those who love this country so much that they cannot consider the contribution they make should be paid or be compensated. I am one of those who work and make others live well. Former senator stated.

Muthama further revealed that he did not lobby for any cabinet position when he interacted with the President. However, the current UDA party chairman exuded confidence that he will soon get a position that will enable him serve Kenyans and promote National Unity.

“I am not worried. I never demanded to be a CS. But I want to assure you one thing, I would be in the leadership as I have been before playing a role that unite Kenya. I am getting something very soon. I am getting something that will make me in a position to play football as a distributor. As player number six.” Muthama added.

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua had earlier hinted that the Kenya Kwanza administration will reward its loyalists first before considering the opposition.
