Huge Blow To Raila As These Powerful Kieleweke MPS Decamp To UDA

Former Prime minister Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta has been delt a huge blow after 4 powerful Kieleweke members of parliament decamp to UDA. These 4 MPs were among many legislators from Ruto's bedroom who supported Raila Odinga. The four members of parliament them Joshua Kutuny, Silas Tiren, William Chepkut and Alfred Keter of Nandi

The four members of parliament were among the critics of Deputy President William Ruto but now they have declared that they will not abandon their own son when he needed them the most.

This is great news to Deputy President William Ruto who is seeking to take over the presidency from President Uhuru Kenyatta. DP Ruto has now his Rift Valley backyard on his side and this will strengthen his base.

However, on the other side of the coin, this comes as a huge blow to Raila as he thought he would use them to woo voters from Ruto's backyard to support him. What do you think about this move by the MPs?
