Deputy President William Ruto and his Kenya Kwanza brigade plan to amend the constitution and implement sections of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) within two weeks in office. This is according to a power pact between UDA and its partners in Kenya Kwanza seen by this publication.
“Pursuant to Article 131(1) (b) and Article 132(3) (c) of the Constitution, the President of the Republic shall, within (14) days of being sworn in following the General Election create the position of prime cabinet secretary,” the agreement reads in part.

The ANC Party shall be nominating the Prime Minister after amendments on the Constitution.
“ANC shall nominate a prime cabinet secretary for appointment by the President of the Republic, in accordance with the Constitution. The prime cabinet secretary shall assist the president and the deputy president in coordination and supervision of Government Ministries and State Departments,” the agreement continues.
This new position by the deputy president is a contradiction from his earlier stance where he labeled those pushing for an expanded executive as selfish leaders only interested in individual posts.
