Tribal parties, according to Deputy President William Ruto, should not be given a chance in Kenya's political space.
Ruto referred to them as the most significant impediments to Kenya's development because they foster hatred, division, and ethnicity.
He claimed that it was impossible to unite the country if "everyone has his political party from his corner, community, or region."
"Siasa ya ukabila ndio imerudisha Kenya nyuma. Safari hii tumalize na tuzike siasa ya ukabila katika taifa letu la Kenya. Tunafaa kuhakikisha sote tumeungana kwa chama ambayo inaunganisha wakenya wote,chama Cha kazi,Chama ya UDA," Ruto said.
"Nataka wajue vile wakenya wamesema hawapangwingwi, mimi pia kama hustler nataka niwaambie sipangwingwi,wao wapangwe na deep state ama system," he added.
Governor Waiguru,who attended the meeting, stated that the support shown to Ruto during his visit to Kirinyaga on Sunday was representative of all Mt Kenya Counties.
"Because of his development credentials, the region is firmly behind Ruto," she said.
The Kirinyaga Governor urged Kenyans to rally behind the Deputy President because of his energy and commitment to making Kenya a better place for all.
