Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party ally blogger Lord Abraham Mutai has reminded Kenyans that Deputy President Dr William Ruto, was among the YK92 youth group which opposed the repeal of section 2A of the independence constitution, to give way for multiparty democracy in the country.
The DP who was among the youths who were given a platform by the former President the late Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi to join politics, opposed the introduction of multiparty democracy which other politicians like the ODM leader Raila Odinga were fighting for.
Through his Twitter handle account, Mutai said that the DP wanted the ruling party by then that's KANU, to be the only one to continue ruling the country forever. He is then now pushing for his new political vehicle United Democratic Alliance (UDA) to be the only party to rule Kenya if he wins presidency next year.
This is after apposing to form any coalition with other parties especially from Mt Kenya region, and he is pushing for the leaders who have their own small parties there to shelve their parties and join his camp UDA. He does not want the leaders from the mountain region, to enjoy their multiparty democracy as provided by in the new constitution.
