It has now emerged that President Uhuru Kenyatta tried to entice CORD co-principal with goodies that included top position if his Wiper Party ditched the opposition. Wiper could, among other things, control the legislature.
His plan was in preparation for the 2017 re-election given the floundering fortunes of the Deputy President.
The positions that were to be offered to Wiper Party:
National Assembly Leader of Majority-To replace the incumbent Aden Duale
Cabinet Secretaries positions to fill position left vacant by those suspended including Land Secretary Charity Ngilu.
President is reaching to the Kamba community and has already appointed Nzioka Waita as Secretary of Delivery and Monica Juma as Secretary to the Cabinet.
Muthama has insisted that Wiper Party will not into any kind of arrangement with Jubilee.
A local daily reported that allies of the Cord co-principal held several meetings to fine tune the plan and try to persuade the Wiper leader to accept the deal.
