We are near the start of the weekend and the end of a week that has been marred with twists and turns and one full of drama in the political world.
President Uhuru Kenyatta in the last month embarked on a house cleaning exercise where some rogue Jubilee party members were stripped of their top positions.
Uhuru’s new men in power have, however, not found things smooth sailing and instead left the president more frustrated than before.
Murang’a Senator Irungu Kang’ata found himself on the limelight for the wrong reasons.
Tasked with replacing Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika as the Majority Whip, Kang’ata has struggled to command authority in the Senate.
The leader was tasked with the responsibility of ensuring that the County Revenue Allocations Formula passed with ease, a task he has failed not once but twice.
Instead of finding a new strategy, the Murang’a senator resorted to issuing threats to other leaders of the ruling party who had voted against the bill.
This brings about the big question, did Uhuru fail in appointing Kang’ata instead of another person?
