Another Politician Joins DP Ruto's UDA Party Leaving Senator Gideon Moi High and Dry

Kanu party has suffered a major blow after a Member of County Assembly, Elijah Kasheusheu aka Ozil split from the party and joined the Ruto-led United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party. Mr Kasheusheu has been a close ally to Gideon Moi.

The MCA was welcomed to UDA by Deputy President William Ruto, at his Karen residence accompanied by four Members of Parliament from his country, West Pokot.

After meeting the Deputy President William Ruto, Ozil posted in his social media account stating, "It is a new dawn for the people of Mnagei ward, a new beginning and politics of inclusivity." He also tagged UDA party and DP Ruto in his stated.

West Pokot County Governor Lonyangapuo, who has been having a strained relationship with the Kanu administration since 2019, is among those who have defected from Senator Gideon Moi's party. The governor formed his own party called Kenya Union Party [KUP].

Ozil vacating to UDA is another boost for the DP’s party. This comes a few days after twenty other MCAs joined the party together with Kirinyaga County Governor Anne Waiguru.
