Even as the 'transfer window' in Kenyan politics seems to have gained momentum ahead of 2022, Murang'a Senator Irung'u Kangata has once again spelt doom for President Uhuru Kenyatta's Jubilee party as far as 2022 support from Mt. Kenya region is concerned.
Speaking on Tuesday evening during Punchline show at K24 Tv, Kang'ata allegedly revealed that it is only a matter of time before the remaining Kieleweke MPs from Mt. Kenya region crosses over to William Ruto's UDA camp.
He claimed that the Kieleweke leaders have been secretly calling DP Ruto at night, expressing their intensions to cross over, but maintained that they are still in Jubilee for fear of intimidations.
"If I was to give you names of people from our region who usually speak to DP William Ruto at night, you will be surprised. They are only in Jubilee at daytime and UDA at night, they just fear intimidations and cutting of development funds to their regions," stated Irungu.
While citing the recent defection of Kiambu Woman Representative Gathoni Wamuchomba to UDA, Kang'ata said the region will fully rally behind DP Ruto in 2022 and UDA will be the region's party after massive defections from Jubilee
"I can tell you that a vast majority of MPs support William Ruto. A region has about 60 MPs and you will find that quite a substantial amount support the DP the ones that remain are there for a number of reasons like fear," he added
