The implosion within the Kenya Kwanza government will not derail the government’s development agenda, Prime Cabinet Secretary and Foreign and Diaspora Affairs Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi has assured.

Mudavadi said the current wrangles are not unique and pose no threat to implementation of government agenda.

“It is not the first time we are seeing something like this. We have been seeing these kind of wrangles for a very long time,” he said.

Speaking to the Star, Mudavadi said the government is still focused on dealing with substantive issues Kenyans want addressed, key among them reviving the economy.

“The majority of the people starting from the President are focused on delivering services,” he said.

“The President is very much focused on stabilising and growing the economy.”

Kenya Kwanza has been rocked by factional dispute as leaders openly engage in war of words.

Reacting to the wrangles, former United Democratic Alliance chairperson Johnson Muthama urged Kenya Kwanza leaders to avoid talking at each other and instead embrace one another to solve differences.

“In case there are some teething issues, let us use our internal mechanisms to iron them without exposing ourselves the way it has happened recently,” he said in a statement on Wednesday.

Muthama said Kenya Kwanza leaders should focus on implementing the Bottom-Up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA).

His remarks came hot on the heels of a statement by UDA Secretary General Cleophas Malala, who called out Cabinet Secretaries Moses Kuria (Public Service) and Kipchumba Murkomen (Transport) for engaging in politics.

Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi immediately hit back at Malala following his warning.

Just minutes after Malala released the presser, Sudi issued a veiled remark on the statement through his X account.

Over the weekend, Sudi hit out at Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s recent warning that Rift Valley MPs should refrain from engaging in Mt Kenya politics.

Sudi said that Gachagua had no authority to direct any politician or leader on where they should engage their politics in Kenya.

Sudi accused Gachagua of fostering division by telling political leaders not to tour other regions.

Gachagua had taken his political disputes to the President’s stronghold during a meeting in Kesses, where he warned “young politicians” against interfering in Central Kenya politics.
