Ruto Dealt a Huge Blow After Mt Kenya Leader Sends a Powerful Message to The Residents Ahead of 2022

The Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi has urged Mount Kenya residents to dismiss leaders who are calling them to join a single party after folding their regional parties.

Speaking on Sunday after meeting Kiama Kia Ma delegates in Githuguri, Muturi who is eyeing the presidency under the Democratic Party (DP) come 2022, stated that it is high time that political parties are allowed to flourish as the country advocates for multipartism, thus dismissing allegations from Ruto's camp that parties started from a certain region are tribal.

"Let nobody tell us that any of our party is tribal. Any political party must have at least 24 functional county offices. If a party has met this requirement, then it is not tribal. These parties represent people and interests of their communities, instead of folding them we should be calling for their strengthening," posed Muturi.

His remarks comes few days after Martha Karua dismissed calls by Ruto's side to dissolve their political parties and join UDA, on claims that the smaller parties are championing for tribalism compared to his UDA which the camp says has a national outlook.
