In the latest blow, the Head of State has lost five members of his party from his own Mt Kenya backyard which is a great loss to him and his close allies.
Among those who have dumped the ruling party is his own county governor of Kiambu Dr James Nyoro who has already declared that he will not be seeking to recapture his seat with the current party.
All this comes after Nyeri county governor Mutahi Kahiga also dumped the president's party to join deputy president William Ruto's United Democratic Alliance movement Party.
Already, the Nakuru county governor Lee Kinyanjui has indicated that the five governors might join hands with an aim of trying to ensure that they come up with a common vehicle to use in the upcoming presidential elections.
“All we ask is caution while pursuing this bloc. Do not invest too much because you are likely to regret it. From the last five elections since multipartyism, the region has voted with its heart not its head," Kinyanjui said. "Interests and only interests will reign supreme."
