Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua: Political Parties in Kenya Kwanza Will Not be Forced to Merge With UDA

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua of Kenya has stated that political parties under the Kenya Kwanza coalition will not merge to form one entity under the United Democratic Alliance (UDA). Gachagua explained that the parties within the coalition had entered into a pact when they joined forces and there were no plans to go back on their agreement.

Gachagua made these comments during a joint media interview on Sunday, where he encouraged UDA party Secretary General Cleophas Malalah not to pressure anyone in Kenya Kwanza to dissolve their parties and join UDA. He emphasized the importance of democracy and allowing it to thrive in the political sphere.

Furthermore, Gachagua stated that the UDA leadership had no plans to push for the folding of parties in the coalition, at least not in the immediate future. He noted that Malalah’s ideas for making UDA a strong party were appreciated, but the decision to appoint him as Secretary General was based on his qualities, energy, passion, and vigor.

It appears that the parties within the Kenya Kwanza coalition will maintain their independence and work together as a collective under the current agreement. The Deputy President’s statements emphasize the importance of democratic principles and the need for all parties to thrive in a political climate that fosters fairness, equity, and inclusivity.
