Kenyan Speaker of the Senate Kenneth Lusaka has come out to deny he is behind the woes bedeviling Water and Irrigation Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa who is facing imminent sacking from President Uhuru Kenyatta’s cabinet.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, January 9. Lusaka addressed accusations from a section of leaders from the Western region that he has prompted Wamalwa’s imminent sacking as he seeks to dominate the region.

The Speaker said in his 28 years as a civil servant he has never wished anyone trouble and has always advocated for unity among the Luhya nation and indeed Kenya.

“I have never used my proximity to power to fight anyone for any reason whatsoever. I have instead used it to build the capacity of our people and harness the resources of our community. My record can be checked throughout my 28 years of public service, a signature of dedication and humility,” Lusaka said.

The allegations against him come a few months after he bragged how he became the senior-most and powerful politician from Western Kenya in the Jubilee government despite losing his governorship seat to Wycliffe Wangamati.

As earlier reported, Wamalwa was among the 13 cabinet secretaries whom Uhuru omitted from his fresh list as he retained only six from the previous cabinet. They are Fred Matiangí, James Macharia, Henry Rotich, Najib Balala, Charles Keter and Joe Mucheru. He also added Keriako Tobiko, Ukur Yattan and John Munyes to the fold.

Already, a section of Jubilee MPs from western Kenya has threatened to ditch the party for the opposition if Wamalwa is sacked as CS. The MPs argue that Wamalwa remains their key point-man from the region and should be retained in Uhuru’s administration.
