“The Amani National Congress party wishes to sincerely and heartily thank President William Ruto for honouring his pre-election promise of appointing our party leader as the Prime Cabinet Secretary. This is a clear demonstration of the President's high social and political etiquette as a trusted leader who keeps his word and action,” said Simon Gikuru, the ANC secretary general.

“We know the trust, faith and high hopes Ruto has in Hon. Mudavadi to successfully deliver on the titanic responsibilities of coordinating and supervising government ministries. As ANC family across the country and in the diaspora, we commit our unwavering support to the Prime Cabinet Secretary Hon Musalia Mudavadi aka "Earthquake" to deliver on his key roles of helping both HE President Ruto and his Deputy Rigathi Gachagua in ensuring smooth running of the government functions.”
