Ruto's Plan Takes a Drastic Turn as Mt Kenya UDA Leaders Allegedly Plans to Depart Before 2027

President William Ruto largely depended on votes in Mount Kenya to win the last general election, giving the leader of the United Democratic Union (UDA) party a ticket to the State House with millions of voters from several constituencies.

However, top leaders in the vote-rich Kenyan region have spoken out against President William Ruto's United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ahead of the 2027 general election, according to the Nation Media Group's weekly review.

According to the publication, there are ongoing talks with senior leaders of Mount Kenya who believe it is time to form their own political party to support regional interests, as the ANC and Ford have done for Kenya's western region.

The plan will undermine President William Ruto at a time when parliament is focused on holding parliament together and passing the government's legislative agenda. It would also be a blow to the well-documented mission of eliminating minor parties and building a national political party.
