In a meeting that excluded Deputy President William Ruto,President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga on Tuesday summoned the senate leadership to state house and offered a sweet-sour deal that split the lawmakers and shook the prevailing camps on the matter.The two leaders dangled a 50 billion shilling deal in front of intransigent senators,as the revenue sharing deadlock entered a penultimate stage.

This comes at a time when there has been 10 senate meetings that have failed to come to an understanding on revenue sharing formula.

Immediately the deal filtered through,a group of s senators under the ”Team Kenya” banner opposed it while expressing fears that State House was luring its membership.

The billions are predicated on performance of the economy,and with the battering it has received from the COVID-19 pandemic,it is doubtful that the State will be in position to implement it.
