Governor Lee Kinyanjui Cries Foul Over Ruto-Mudavadi Pact as Coalition Takes Shape

A day after ANC Party Leader Musalia Mudavadi's political earthquake caused tremors in the political arena, Nakuru County Governor Lee Kinyanjui has come out to express his views.

This is after the ANC boss took many bu surprises after inviting Deputy President William Ruto to his NDC meeting at Bomas of Kenya and announced that the two parties will forge a working coalition ahead of 2022.

And with the aftermath of the announcement still felt in the country, Kinyanjui has come out to castigate William Ruto over his decision to embrace Mudavadi, despite having a contrary opinion on coalitions in the past.

According to the handshake allied governor, Ruto has disrespected Mt Kenya people and leaders after he told them off for forming their own parties. He said Ruto labeled Mt Kenya parties as ethnic and tribal units, but quickly embraced ANC on Sunday.

"When people from Mt Kenya come in their parties to join the yellow team, they are asked to fold up their parties. When leaders from other parts of the country join the yellow team in their parties, they are labeled principles and ushered to the high table. Surely, they claim we are all equal" read part of his post.

This comes at a time Ruto and Musalia have vowed to work together and form a formidable coalition ahead of August 2022.

Their reunion seems to have awakened reactions from various quarters with those allied to the handshake team coming out to castigate and rubbish their pact.
