"Please Resist Before It's Late" Popular Lawyer Tells Musalia, Kingi, Mutua, Wetangula Over New Plan

President William Ruto's plan to form a one strong party, by calling for the dissolution of all parties within the Kenya Kwanza Alliance, in to the united Democratic Alliance (UDA) party has emerged after Former Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala who was in the Amani National Congress party jumped ship to join UDA taking up the secretary general position.

According to different sources, President Ruto is aiming at forming a big and all around UDA party ahead of the 2027 polls, and that means that his co-principals in the Kenya Kwanza team will be pursued to give in and collapse their political parties.

Speaking with the Nation on Wednesday, Political Expert and Lawyer Dr Erick Komolo opined that the move will reduce the politicians bargaining power, with the parties on the spot being those associated with Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya), Alfred Mutua's Maendeleo Chap Chap, Amason Kingi's Pamoja African Alliance among others.

“It will reduce bargaining power at the national level and frustrates political competition at the grassroots. In my view, Mudavadi, Wetangula, Mutua and Kingi should totally resist this idea before it's too lat as it will take away their bargaining power, identity and is bad for democracy."

He recounted how Uhuru Kenyatta's TNA and Ruto's URP among other parties came up to form the Jubilee Alliance in 2017, saying it was the beginning of the bitter fall out between the duo, and that if leaders are not keen, the same will happen in the next few years if they fold their parties in favour of the UDA party.
