Ruto Suffers Another Setback as Tens of UDA Leaders Defect to Join KANU in Nakuru

The August general election is fast approaching and politicians are laying out strategies that will guarantee them a place in the next government. Alignments, forging of political parties and forming of alliances are some of the activities that have dominated the political arena.

On Sunday, January 16th, the deputy president suffered a major setback after grassroot leaders drawn from Nakuru county defected to join KANU. According to Nakuru county KANU coordinator John Ngunjiri, the party was delighted to receive over seventy leaders from UDA party.

According to Ngunjiri, the leaders saw it fit to dump UDA party after seeing where the country is going. The KANU boss added that the party is live and kicking and will be fielding candidates in all positions come 2022.

"Those people who have been saying that KANU is dead should now know that hundreds of leaders are yearning to be with us. KANU is live and kicking. We shall be fielding candidates in all positions. For now, we are undertaking an intensive training to all our aspirants," said Ngunjiri.

On their part, the leaders pledged to support KANU moving forward. They also stated that their relationship with the deputy president William Ruto and UDA party was over.
