The latest claims that are coming from the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance Coalition Party suggest that despite the prolonged silence and low profile that has been maintained by Alice Wahome in recent times, there is a lot going on in the background.

Former Nairobi County Assembly nominated member Karen Wanjiku took to Twitter to claim that Water, Sanitation and Irrigation ministry which is under Alice Wahome as Cabinet Secretary was effectively being run by Principal Secretary Paul Rono while the same was happening in the Energy and Petroleum docket where Davis Chirchir’s Principal Secretary is running the show. Her tweet read,

Public Announcement. Alice Wahome and Davis Chirchir are not in charge of their respective ministries. The true shot callers in the aforementioned cabinet slots are the Permanent Secretaries who are directly answerable to Charlene Ruto and Riggy G is not happy about it.

It shall be remembered that Water and sanitation Principal Secretary Nominee Paul Rono caused a spectacle in November when he defended himself from claims he had deliberately refused to hand over office.
Appearing before the National Assembly’s committee on Blue economy and Irrigation, he told MPs that a pending court case had hampered the process.
“Honorable members, it is not true that I have refused to hand over… I am aware there is a lobby group that moved to court to block the recruitment exercise among other things and that is what has blocked the arrangement,” he said.

Based on their submissions in court, he argued, temporary injunctions were issued barring a new individual from taking over from him.
Rono was responding to a question by Mathira MP Eric Kahugu who claimed following the conclusion of an interview process conducted by the board, he emerged the second.
Stanley Kamanguya, according to Kahuga, is alleged to have been ranked at the top among other hopefuls.
But documents filed in court showed the contrary.
“It has got nothing to do with me of Kamanguya. When he tried taking over office the banks said they are not going to allow him to access the bank accounts until the matter is dispensed with,” he noted.

The nominee, however, told the committee that he was ready and willing to facilitate a smooth handover process.
Rono, at the same time, vowed to ensure the perennial water problem in various parts of the country is solved once and for all during his tenure if appointed.
He said currently 60 per cent of Kenyans have access to water and he aims at achieving the 90 per cent target.
