Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto and his CCM party join NASA
After several months of anticipation, Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto, has officially announced that he has joined the opposition coalition, National Super Alliance (NASA).
According to the Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) party leader, his decision to join NASA was arrived at after a series of consultative meetings with the Kipsigis Council of Elders, who approved CCM to join forces with NASA in a bid to trounce the President Uhuru Kenyatta-led administration out of power.
Speaking in Bomet after the last meeting with the elders, Mr Ruto now says that he is officially the fifth NASA co-principal, joining ANC’s Musalia Mudavadi, ODM’s Raila Odinga, Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetangula and Wiper’s Kalonzo Musyoka.
“We have held discussions with teachers’ representatives, Maendeleo ya Wanawake, former Councillors, village elders and the Kipsigis Council of Elders and we were all in agreement that we now join up and sign up with NASA,” said the Governor.
Court stops government from compensating IDPs
The High Court in Nakuru has temporarily stopped the government from disbursing Ksh6 billion funds meant for compensation of integrated IDPs until hearing and determination of a petition filed in court.
Chama issued conservatory orders after the internally displaced persons support initiative moved to court seeking to stop the disbursement of the funds meant for resettlement and compensation until they are furnished with beneficiaries list.
The group moved to court under a certificate of urgency saying that process will lead to the government to secretly roll-out payment to persons who are not genuine IDPs which will contravene the law and lead to suffering genuine victims.
