“I Wish I Remain in UDA” Kipruto Arap Kirwa Regrets Ditching UDA for Azimo Coalition

Former UDA vice chairman Kipruto Arap Kirwa now regret ditching UDA for Azimo Coalition saying he did not expect to decamp from Kenya Kwanza to Azimio to form the opposition.

While addressing his supporters in social media, Arap Kirwa said that Azimio's loss to Kenya Kwanza was his lowest moment.

"When I decamped from Kenya Kwanza, I was not decamping to move to the opposition. I hoped that Azimio would make it to government and that was my lowest moment," Kirwa said.

He said he was going to give his one vote to Raila to ensure he got 50%+1 of the votes that would be cast on August 9 to win the presidency.

While welcoming him, Karua said Kirwa is a hardworking leader who demonstrated his commitment to change Kenya when he was the Minister of Agriculture during Mwai Kibaki's government.

He added that the peaceful general elections showed how Kenya has matured in democracy.

Kirwa said that Kenya Kwanza won because they were better organised, unlike Azimio.

"I strongly believe that Kenya Kwanza was better organised in terms of leadership, they had one clear leader that is the President and the rest fell in place, Azimio, on the other hand, had a number of leaders and lack of discipline among the coalition partners," he said.

"When you Kirwa, with me and Raila Odinga, just know that we are hardworking people and we've demonstrated when we held leadership positions," she said.

Karua added: "Raila participated in building roads in this country. When you see high-flying roads in Kenyan towns, just know they are the products of Engineer Raila Amolo Odinga."

However, Kirwa said that Azimio has learnt its lessons after the loss and will strategise going forward.

In May, Kirwa dumped President William Ruto's UDA party for Raila Odinga's Azimio.
