Deputy President William Ruto has been on a three-day tour in the Coastal region where he has held plethora of meetings from Kwale County to Kilifi and is today expected in Mombasa where he will carry out his political campaigns.

The DP is keen on securing the support of the region which has been deemed a stronghold of the ODM party leader Raila Odinga.

The ODM leader has unfortunately lost grip of some key Influential leaders from the region, who played a key role in solidifying his support base, to the DP.

Even though the meetings have been labelled as 'inspecting and launching development' projects in the said Counties, they have been charcterised by 2022 succession matrix.

Speaker after speaker was addressing how the region is prepared to push Deputy President William Ruto to power come the next General Election.

Besides, another bone of contention was formation of the Coastal Party where MPs from the region have been seeking to have a single outfit that will help them negotiate for power come 2022.

The Deputy President William Ruto while addressing residents and leaders who graced his meetings raised his view on the matter where he urged Coast leaders to shelve the plan and join his UDA party.

The DP told the leaders that his UDA party has opened its door to the like-minded politicians and went on to offer them a leadership slot at the new outfit.

He proposed Kilifi North MP Owen Baya to be UDA's Secretary General as a way of ensuring the interests of the coastal people are well sorted.

His proposal seeks to create a perception that if regional leaders are given leadership slots at a particular party, they will be at a better position to champion for the rights of their residents with ease rather than having a regional party.

The DP was accompanied by MPs Benjamini Tayari, Paul Katana, Mohamed Ali,Oscar Sudi Aisha Jumwa, Owen Baya, Khatib Mwashetani, Shariff Ali, and Lamu senator Anwar Loitiptip among others
