Trouble in Ruto's UDA Camp as Sharp Division Emerges

Deputy President and his Kenya Kwanza team received a major political boost following the entry of Machakos County governor and Maendeleo Chap Chap Party Leader Dr Alfred Mutua and PAA leader and Kilifi governor Amason Kingi. The two leaders decamped Azimio la Umoja citing Insincerity and lack of respect for the small parties.

Just a day after their entry, sharp division was experienced after UDA chairman Johnson Muthama skipped the rally at his backyard which was hosted by Dr Mutua. While speaking over this act, Muthama said that he can not share the same podium with Mutua because of his embezzlement of county funds and other corruption allegations.

Just before dust could settle between Muthama and Mutua, Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa has ignited a fight with his Kilifi counterpart Governor Amason Kingi. Aisha said that she's against DP Ruto's appointment of Kingi because of his poor performance. Aisha went ahead to say that this might reduce the UDA popularity in the region of Kingi continues to be the main man for vote hunt for Ruto in the costal region.

"While we appreciate his excellence governor Amason Kingi as the outgoing governor, we note with great concern that his bad record as county chief may affect UDA and Kenya Kwanza popularity in Kilifi." Aisha Jumwa said in a statement.
