President William Ruto has barely concealed his intentions of gaining absolute control of Parliament.
The Head of State yesterday staged a coup on his predecessor Uhuru Kenyatta, netting lawmakers from the former ruling Jubilee Party.
His meeting with a host of MPs from Jubilee, whose agenda was heavy on cooperation, won him unofficial defections, the latest in a series that began soon after Ruto was declared winner of last August’s presidential election.
