What Mt Kenya Region's UDA MPs Are Feeling Over ANC-UDA Pact

Following a political deal with ANC boss Musalia Mudavadi, Deputy President William Ruto is facing a delicate balancing act in his search for a running mate.

The DP faces a difficult choice in selecting his running mate: how to appease the Mt Kenya vote bloc without jeopardizing his new partnership with Musalia's ANC camp.

According to reports by the Star,fear has gripped some of the DP Ruto's Mount Kenya region allies,that DP Ruto could ignore them and pick Musalia Mudavadi as his running mate.This could make DP Ruto lose some of the Mount Kenya region support.

There are fears that if Musalia does not get the running mate position, any other position will not satisfy his supporters in Western Kenya.

Mudavadi, on the other hand, could be the ideal economic expert and saviour to rationalize the economy, manage debt, and improve living standards. Super minister with a Treasury docket and broad authority in the Executive.

Lifting the lid on Ruto's Mt Kenya anxiety, nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura insisted on Monday that the DP's running mate is a "preserve of Mt Kenya region."
