UDA MP Urges Mudavadi And Wetangula To Merge ANC, FORD-Kenya Into One Outfit Ahead Of 2027

Embakasi North Member of Parliament James Gakuya has urged the Prime Cabinet Secretary Wycliffe Musalia Mudavadi and the National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula to merge their respective parties, Amani National Congress (ANC) and FORD-Kenya into one strong political outfit so that Western Kenya can use it as a bigger bargaining power in future politics.

While appearing on TV 47 Kenya Live show on Tuesday morning, Gakuya called on Mudavadi and Wetangula to sweet-talk their parties' secretariats to envisage the prospect so that the region can consolidate itself politically ahead of 2027 general election. Link:

"Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula should convince their political parties secretariat and form one strong party of Western Region which can be the bargain machine for Western Kenya," James Gakuya.

This comes after Mudavadi and Wetangula joined hands with Dr William Ruto to form Kenya Kwanza movement that made them win 2022 polls. ANC, FORD-Kenya, United Democratic Alliance (UDA) together with other political parties came together to form the coalition early this year.

Initially, before his decision to join hands with Dr Ruto, Mudavadi was planning to run for presidency. Wetangula had joined him. Later, through his slogan dubbed 'earthquake', he joined the president. Their plan to form government sailed through, where Dr Ruto became Kenya's fifth president, Mudavadi took the new post of prime cabinet minister via an executive order and Wetangula is currently the National Assembly Speaker.

The two Western Kenya leaders were in the same camp with the former prime minister Raila Odinga in the run up to 2017 elections.
