Mixed Reaction as Mudavadi Blasts Ruto's UDA

The county, which is a Ford Kenya stronghold, will hold its by-election this week, and as two constituent parties of the Kenya Kwanza Alliance compete, sibling rivalry is likely to rear its ugly head.

Speaking in Bungoma over the weekend before leaving the country, Mudavadi expressed his opinion that UDA should not have run a candidate there because Ford Kenya hasn't done so in an area that is a stronghold for the party.

While expressing confidence that the Ford Kenya candidate Wakoli will win, he blamed some unnamed UDA operatives for the current confusion being seen.

Internet users have responded to his remarks in a variety of ways. Some have argued that Mudavadi is fully aware that Ruto opposes zoning because it fosters tribalism.


Mfalmez Says:Political zoning has entrenched tribalism and thus become a major hindrance to realization of true democracy.

Kenya needs three or four national political parties based on distinct ideologies not the current individual driven (almost cult like in some) and ethnic based.
