Mt Kenya MP Reacts to Azimio Claims That Ruto's Parliament Visit Might Affect Wetangula's Ruling

The Speaker of the National Assembly Moses Wetangula is expected to give a ruling today during the house siting on which political formation has the majority between President William Ruto's Kenya Kwanza Alliance, and the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance led by Raila Odinga.

After Ruto made an impromptu visit in parliament yesterday, a section of Azimio allied leaders have argued that the ruling might be aligned to the Kenya Kwanza Alliance camp despite the Registrar of Political Parties saying Azimio has the majority.

Speaking with KTN News outside parliament, Tharaka MP George Gitonga maintained that the visit had nothing to do with today's ruling, and that the speaker will make his decision following the constitution, standing orders and the facts.

"There was nothing much about the president's yesterday visit. The president has always been free to interact with people, and MPs are not an exemption. What the leaders in Azimio do not know is that we interact with the president night before we have a PG meeting, and share out grievances one on one. I want to tell them the visit has absolutely nothing to do with today's ruling," he said.

The United Democratic Alliance, UDA lawmaker added that Wetangula is a lawyer and seasoned politician who cannot be influenced, and having listened to the two camps on Tuesday, he will made a decision based on the constitution.
