Raila Demands Resignation of 2 Ruto Appointees

Following their appointments to UDA Party organs, the Orange Democratic Party (ODM) is now demanding that Anthony Mwaura, head of the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), and Joy Mdivo, chair of the KPLC Board, step down from their positions.

During a media conference on April 3, ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna said that public officials in Kenya are unable to simultaneously serve the interests of the people and their respective political parties.

He said it would be much like the KANU administration of the 1980s, when party leaders and public officials were seen to be one and the same.


The senator from Nairobi voiced concerns that the UDA Party’s decision will lead to partisanship and autocracy in the administration of legislative affairs.

“We take the position that this development is wrong, it is a recipe for chaos and dictatorship and partisanship in the management of public affairs. Consequently, we demand that all those people who have been named as UDA officials must immediately resign from public office. There is no way they will serve two masters the public and the UDA Party,” said Sifuna.

On Tuesday, Mwaura was appointed by the UDA Party’s National Steering Committee to the position of National Elections Board head, succeeding Veronica Kiberenge.

Jimmy Kaindi, Lydia Munika, Halake Dida, Mary Mutina, and Linda Kiome are all board members.

Adrian Kamotho will assist Mdivo as head of the Electoral Disputes Resolutions Committee.

The committee is comprised of Hellen Makone, Vyone Cheropkae, Dancan Ojwang, Issac Kaberia, Babra Japan, Anjichi Joseph, and Zipporah Karimi.

The party’s internal resolutions committee, which was headed by Rebecca Tonkei, was likewise reorganized by the party led by President Ruto. Hassan Omar, Joshua Ongera, Leah Manyarkiy, Samuel Kariuki, Robert Theuri, and Ronaldo Shako are all members.
