As the August 9 General Election approaches, the new coalition law brings both pain and hope to major political parties.
One of the most telling implications is that political parties interested in forming a coalition must submit their agreements by April 9.
The law also adds a new wrinkle by requiring political parties to register members for nominations. The Registrar of Political Parties (RPP) has also been given the authority to certify party membership lists and nomination rules.
Most political parties lack proper membership records, and some illegally list voters as members without their knowledge.
It's also becoming clear that Ruto, who was initially opposed to it, has realised that he'll need it to form a coalition.
Meanwhile please share your thoughts with us.
