Muranga senator Irungu Kangata, who recently defected to Ruto's team, has showered the United Democratic Alliance, allied to DP Ruto, and Raila Odinga's Orange Democratic Movement with praises claiming they are the only political parties with the wherewithal to compete nationally. The lawmaker claimed that the other parties in the country lack the ability to contest for political positions away from their support bases.
"Super Thursday has proved that in Kenya,there are only two teams with the wherewithal to compete respectably away from home. It is either with UDA or Chungwa.The rest (wiper ,simba et al) can only win home matches," he tweeted.
His statement came after ANC struggled to floor both UDA and ODM in its home turf. Musalia Mudavadi's party won the Matungu constituency by-election, that was recently held by its party. Kangata was also alluding to the Kabuchai constituency by-election that was won by a Ford Kenya party candidate.
UDA had also fielded a candidate in the by-elections giving the Ford candidate a run for his money. Ruto's UDA won one out of the seven by-elections held yesterday. Kangata however believes that the newly formed political outfit, perfomed above its ability given that it was battling it out with old parties.
