‘We will unveil our shadow cabinet, complete with our own budget’ – Kalonzo
Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka now says that the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition will unveil a shadow cabinet that will oversight the Kenya Kwanza administration.
Speaking on Saturday, October 22, 2022, the former vice president noted that the coalition will announce the members of the cabinet once the coalition's leader Raila Odinga returns.
While maintaining that the cabinet will play a significant role in ensuring that the current administration is held accountable for its actions, Kalonzo pointed out that the coalition will also unveil a budget for its cabinet.
"Baba akirudi, we are going to announce our shadow cabinet because we want to hold them to account, complete with our own budget, which will be presented," Kalonzo stated.
"We have only this country to call home. We have nowhere to go, lazima tuvumiliane," he added.
Kalonzo further expressed his utmost disappointment following Raila's loss in the August 9 election.
"The whole country is hurting. Watu wana hasira ya kindani na watu wanataka majibu na nina amini Mungu atatupatia majibu wakati wake. Kwa nini Raila asikubaliwe awe rais wa Kenya?"he posed.
