This is according to a report covered by the publication done on Monday's standard which alleges that William Ruto and Rigathi Gachagua yesterday wooed a section of Coastal leaders from Azimio la Umoja one Kenya Coalition.

The report intimates that Lamu East member of parliament Ruweida Mohammed who is allied to Gideon Moi's led Kanu agreed to ditch Azimio la Umoja camp for the Kenya Kwanza government to lobby for development.

Speaking in Lamu, president William Ruto called on leaders from various regions in the country to rally behind his government warning them. against engaging in tribalism politics.

On the other side, Gachagua warned the opposition against using former president Uhuru Kenyatta alleging that Mr. Kenyatta is still Kenyan president.

President William Ruto's clever move comes off when Azimio la Umoja one of Kenya Coalition's leaders are threatening to stage a mass action against Kenya Kwanza's government if they will fail to address key issues facing Kenyans in ten days.
