What’s the role of Premier CS? KOT ask after Nasa line up
The unveiling of the National Super Alliance, Nasa, flag bearer and positions for the other three party principles has left the public in confusion as they try to understand the role of the Premier Cabinet Secretary and his two deputies.
Raila Odinga is to be the flag bearer (president), with Kalonzo Musyoka as his running mate (deputy president).
Musalia Mudavadi of ANC will be the Premier Cabinet Secretary (State Department of Internal Security and administration of national Government), deputized by Isaac Ruto (State Department of Devolution and Planning, Finance and national treasury) and Moses Wetangula (State Department of Public Service, Foreign Affairs and International relations).
The position of Premier CS and deputy premier CS does not exist in the constitution.
For the position to be available an amendment of the constitution has to be done and passed unanimously by members of parliament.
Kenyans on Twitter expressed different views on what exactly would be the responsibility of the deputy Premiere Cabinet Secretary, that is if the position exists.
