Thursday, October 13, 2022 –Prime Cabinet Minister Musalia Mudavadi will have his official working space at the Kenya Railways Headquarters.
President William Ruto made the executive order ‘dubbed Order No 1 of 2022’ which has set out how his government is going to be structured
This order, therefore, supersedes any other issued by his predecessor Uhuru Kenyatta and takes effect from today Thursday October 13.
Musalia’s office announcement now puts to rest the increased speculations that he was destined to occupy the ‘powerful’ DP’s Harambee Annex office.
However, keen observers have reacted to the news negatively saying Haile Selassie Avenue where Mudavadi is going to work from is too noisy due to busy Public Service Vehicle PSV and commuter trains which terminates at the Nairobi Central Railway Station.
The former Vice president could also find himself temporarily without an office since the area where he has been allocated is already earmarked for the 32 billion Nairobi Railway City.
The project is expected to cover the 425-acres of land between Haile Selassie Avenue, Uhuru Highway, Landies Road and Bunyala Road. It also requires Neno Evangelism Center owner James Ng’ang’a to relocate.
It had earlier been claimed that Mudavadi would be taking over the Harambee Annex office as the Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua moves his base to the other side of the Haranbee Avenue, at Harambee House.
But it is now in black and white that Mudavadi will work with the executive with his office located kilometers away from the rest.
On the other hand, the president and his deputy still have a luxury to make use of their other offices – Statehouse and DP’s Karen residence respectively.
Reacting to this development, city Lawyer Donald Kipkorir made a joke of the new order saying the market traders based at Marikiti, will for the first time test power through Mudavadi.
“Mama Mboga & mkokoteni boys of Marikiti will for the first time since independence have access to Seat of Power. And people of Western Kenya can pop in for tea before taking the train home. Freedom is here!” he quipped.
It is now a game of wait and see if Mudavadi will accept the offer or not.
