National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK) has proposed expansion of the Executive arm of the government.

The NCCK has asked that the government creates a Prime Minister, two deputies and official leader of the opposition posts.

They say the posts will ensure a more inclusive government.

According to secretary general, Canon Peter Karanja, the president will appoint the Premiere who will sit in the cabinet.

Mr Karanja has however maintained that the posts are not a way of creating a ‘nusu mkate’ government.

This comes after the IEBC declared Uhuru Kenyatta the duly elected President having garnered 98 per cent of the votes cast on October 26.

The opposition leader, Raila Odinga has maintained that the repeat elections were a sham and is pushing for fresh elections in 90 days.

Choas erupted in various parts of the country during the repeat presidential elections especially in the opposition strongholds.

The Prime Minister’s post was in 2008 created to end the post-election violence that rocked the country, leaving more than 1,000 dead and others displaced.

The post was held by Odinga, deputized by Kenyatta and Musalia Mudavadi.
