CS Wahome pinpoints two politicians collaborating with the LSK to sabotage Ruto’s housing plan

Water Cabinet Secretary (CS) Alice Wahome has asserted that Kalonzo Musyoka, a co-principal of the Azimio la Umoja – One Kenya coalition, along with former Defence CS Eugene Wamalwa, are to blame for the legal challenges hindering the housing plan.

Speaking at the launch of the affordable housing program in Bondeni, Nakuru county on January 13, 2024, the CS accused the two leaders of collaborating with the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) to undermine the government’s initiative to fully implement the housing agenda.

Criticizing them for the court cases against Ruto’s affordable housing program, she argued that their actions, in conjunction with LSK, undermine the entire purpose of the program.


Wahome urged the leaders to share alternative ideas with the government for achieving similar goals instead of attempting to obstruct its efforts.

“The problem that I saw even though we called the lawyers, the person behind the demonstrations is Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka na Wamalwa. That defeats the purpose, sasa tumejua ni nani amekua akifanya hio maandamano.

“I want to ask Kalonzo and the president of the Law Society of Kenya to give me memoranda on the housing plan,” the CS added.

CS Wahome’s comments come in the wake of Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and Eugene Wamalwa leading lawyers in a protest on Friday, January 12, 2024, against Deputy President Ruto’s persistent criticisms of the judiciary.

During the demonstration, lawyers, chanting ‘Ruto must go,’ expressed their grievances against the president.

The president’s comments about the judiciary drew the concern of some leaders in the country and the East African Judges and Magistrates (EAMJA), who expressed deep apprehension regarding the Head of State’s criticism of the judiciary.

“EAMJA wishes to remind the Kenyan government of its commitment to various regional, continental, and international instruments that underscore the importance of preserving the independence of the judiciary. EAMJA underscores the significance of addressing any grievances against judicial officers or their decisions within an acceptable framework that enhances the rule of law and the independence of the judiciary.

“Any concerns or disputes must be handled through established legal channels, respecting the principles of due process and the separation of powers,” EAMJA said in their protest statement.
