The Amani National Congress party and Ford Kenya, owned by Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi and National Speaker Moses Wetangula could be at danger of extinction as the former Kakamega gubernatorial candidate Cleophas Malala hinted of his plans to push for a joint coalition party among the Kenya Kwanza affiliates.Surprisingly, Mr Malala was a close ally of the two western leaders and had even used Mudavadi's ANC in his gubernatorial bid. Malala's move from the party to Ruto's UDA came as a surprise since he never announced his defection prior to being installed as the new secretary general of the ruling party.ANC and Ford Kenya have been dominant parties in Western region. However,this is set to drastically change considering Malala's vow that he is going to spend all his energy in recruiting new members to UDA. However,the two leaders have remained silent on the move hence raising more speculations.UDA's strategy to fold it's affiliate parties could be a replica of Uhuru's strategy where several parties were dissolved to form Jubilee. This propelled him to statehouse in his second bid. Ruto will also be seeking for a re-election in 2027.
