Suna East Member of Parliament (MP) Junet Mohamed has accused Deputy President William Ruto-led Kenya Kwanza Alliance of neglecting mama mbogas and boda boda people in his line-up should he win the presidency on the August 9 general election.

The MP said mama mbogas and boda boda people have been at the centre stage of Ruto's vote hunting mission but are nowhere to be seen in the positions that have been shared by Kenya Kwanza constituent parties.

“Ruto told Kenyans that there will be no sharing of positions in his lineup. Ruto’s party was to operate without positions but everyone walking around offering services.

"Those services were to be offered by kina mama mboga and boda boda people not Musalia Mudavadi, Moses Wetangula, Amason Kingi, and Alfred Mutua,” Junet said during a press conference on Thursday.

Junet said Ruto will try to bring back Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) to accommodate his allies.

“He is basically trying to re-invent his own BBI and it can’t work,” he said.

He added: “I want to repeat this, Musalia, Wetangula, Kingi and Mutua have been coned by Ruto. They have been allocated positions that Ruto said will not exist.

"They have taken positions that were to be occupied by mama mboga and now mama mboga has no space, boda boda riders have no space. Their space has been taken by the four leaders,” Junet said.
