Muthama decries sidelining of Kamba leaders in Ruto’s government

Former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama has sparked political intrigue after decrying the sidelining of Kamba leaders in Ruto’s government.

Speaking at a funeral in Mbooni, Muthama expressed regret over leaving Wiper, hinting at a renewed alliance with Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka to shape the future of the Kamba community. 

In a striking revelation, Muthama highlighted that despite holding high-profile appointments in the current government, the Kamba community remains largely absent from key leadership positions.

 “Apart from the appointment like mine when it comes to the real decision-making, national cake sharing, there’s no Kamba at the table,” Muthama lamented.

Muthama called for a community-wide meeting to discuss their political direction, emphasizing unity beyond party lines. “We can talk endlessly, but unless we unite our 2 million votes, no one will listen to us,” he declared.

His sentiments resonated with Kalonzo Musyoka, who urged that the meeting should take place before the end of July.

 Makueni governor Mutula Kilonzo Junior was tasked with organizing this pivotal gathering, which would also involve former Kitui Senator David Musila, a respected figure in the community.

The remarks were made during a burial ceremony in Tulimani, Mbooni sub-county, setting the stage for what could be a significant shift in Kamba political dynamics.
