Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka and his Amani National Congress (ANC) counterpart Musalia Mudavadi are among names proposed for Cabinet positions in a looming reshuffle by President Kenyatta.
The Standard reports that opposition leader Raila Odinga, who will play a key role in the Cabinet changes following his March 9th handshake with President Uhuru, is keen to have the two included in the new team.
The shakeup in Cabinet is said to be part of President Uhuru and Odinga's secret meeting held last week at the Coast. Sources say Raila could be given at least four Cabinet slots in the changes while Jubilee fills the remaining 17.
“There are some negotiations going on. There is something in the offing for Kalonzo, that I can assure you,” a Wiper Senator told The Standard.
The newspaper further reports that the Head of State could make a tour to Raila's Nyanza backyard after the reshuffle. Current Cabinet Secretaries whose dockets have been adversely mentioned in corruption scandals face the axe.
“More surprises await us in coming days. The President is planning a major re-organisation that will not spare his office,” a Jubilee insider told the publication.
