Fresh details have emerged why Deputy President William Ruto does not want the United Democratic Alliance Party to partner with Mt Kenya parties like Narc Party led by Martha Karua, The Service Party led by former Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri, and Chama Cha Kazi party led by Moses Kuria as new details emerge.
Following Deputy President William Ruto's latest move to allow the Amani National Congress party and Ford Kenya party to join his United Democratic Alliance party.
Controversy has sparked with several DP Ruto's critics alleging that the move by the Deputy President is a ploy to block the Mt Kenya region from clinging to power by using Mudavadi from blocking the region not to get the running mate position.
But why is DP Ruto blocking Mt Kenya parties like CCK and TSP Join an alliance with the UDA party? Mathira Member of Parliament Hon Rigathi Gachagua is on the record informing that "Anybody who wants to enter a coalition, you need to enter into such an agreement with a party whose strength is known because that will define the terms of engagement. If your strength is not known, what is the term of Engagement?"
The Mathira legislator continued to explain that the reason why they choose Amani National Congress Party and the Ford Kenya party is because of their strength making it clear that "Nobody has said we have a problem with Mt Kenya parties but what is the strength of Kiunjuri's TSP or Moses Kuria's CCK?"
