What Karua & Mathenge said About Mt Kenya 2022 Politics That Should 'Force' Ruto to Change His Stand

Deputy President William Ruto has stood his ground that he was not looking to form political coalitions with other parties which he has termed as 'tribal' arguing that the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) was a national party.

Ruto's remarks have elicited criticism and mixed reactions from political party leaders across Mount Kenya Region who have maintained that they will not fold their parties for the sake of UDA.

As quoted by the Sunday Nation, Narc Kenya's Martha Karua and his counterpart Thuo Mathenge, the New Democrats party leader, stated that the region is bracing small parties, and will support them until 2022.

"We will not go back to one party system. We tirelessly fought for multipartism, and I am calling upon my colleagues not to fold up their parties, let's compete fairly," said Karua.

Mathenge supported Karua's sentiments adding that the region is large enough to have as many political parties as possible, and that unity and oneness is guaranteed.

According to a number of political analysts ,Ruto's firm stand might cost him the presidency despite enjoying the support of Mount Kenya Region and it is time he makes a U-turn and embraces numerous parties.
