In reaction to Raila Odinga's main supporter's statement that he regretted leaving the UDA Party for the Azimio La Umoja Coalition in the closing stages of the presidential campaign, Kakamega Senator Bony Khalwale offered a one-word rejoinder. Politicians frequently switch political parties as the general elections draw near in order to increase their chances of being re-elected or appointed to a variety of government roles.
Before shifting his political allegiance to the Azimio La Umoja Coalition, former Cherengany Member of Parliament Kipruto Arap Kirwa was one of William Ruto's most important allies. He joined Azimio a few months before the August general election because he was sure Raila Odinga would win and grant him a job in the government of Azimio.
Kipruto Arap Kirwa reaffirmed today that he was leaving for Azimio knowing well well that they would form the government and would not be in the position they are in right now. The lowest point in his life, according to him, was when he realized he was in opposition. Sen. Khalwale accused the former Cherengany MP of being an opportunist in response to Arap's views.
The preparations of Kipruto Arap Kirwa were unsuccessful because Kenya Kwanza Alliance unexpectedly beat Azimio. Many Kenyans were not astonished by his statement because politicians frequently switch political allegiances.
