Ruto's Camp In Tatters As The DP's MPs Gang Up Against Malala As Mudavadi, Wetang'ula Are Written Off

Several members of the national assembly allied to deputy president William Ruto have come out to gang up in unison against Kakamega county senator Cleophas Malala over utterances that the senator made several days ago.

Led by the party's chairman Johnson Muthama, Keiyo south member of Parliament Daniel Rono, nominated MP Gideon Keter and Mumias East constituency member of the national assembly Benjamin Washiali the leaders had no kind words for Malala.

Muthama and Washiali told Malala to stop the ethnic mentality after he demanded that ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi becomes Dr Ruto's running mate.

"Malala makes strange remarks that have caused rifts before. I can remember when they were still in OKA, it was such remarks that started weakening the link between Kalonzo and Mudavadi," he stated in an interview with The Nation.

At the same time, some members of parliament allied to Ruto have written off Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang'ula terming the two leaders as less inconsequential following the recent exodus from ANC and Ford Kenya.

The legislators suggested that Wetang'ula and Mudavadi don't have the clout to get the running mate position and that the best they can get is a Treasury cabinet secretary slot and Senate speaker respectively.
