According to inside details, the Coalition between Jubilee and Wiper will see Kalonzo appointed to the Cabinet. The former Vice President will possibly be the next Foreign Affairs CS. Isaac Ruto will likely be handed the Secretary to the Cabinet role in the looming Cabinet reshuffle. KANU will also get some slots in the Cabinet with reports that former Chamber of Commerce boss Kiprono Kittony has been earmarked for a post.
Jubilee is also contemplating the possibility of fielding Gideon Moi as its flagbearer in 2022 with Kalonzo as his running mate.
Interesting times ahead.
