In the run-up to the 2017 General Election, Deputy President Dr William Samoei Ruto spearheaded the merger of small parties to form Jubilee.
But will the marriage last up to the end? There has been a clear division in Jubilee, with the formations of Team Tanga Tanga and Team Kieleweke, which preach different gospels for two different masters, Ruto and President Uhuru Kenyatta respectively.
Three years to the next election, new parties are either springing up or old ones are being revived.
The latest kid on the block is Transformation National Alliance, which is linked to Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria. He had initially tried to take over the Democratic Party, but the Party came out to disown him.
Kuria has announced that he would run for President in 2022. He got his Parliamentary seat via a Jubilee ticket, but he is now out to battle it out with Ruto on the ballot.
A few months ago, Kuria revealed that either Ruto or ODM leader Raila Odinga could make his good running mate.
He has hence promised to humiliate the DP on the ballot come 2022. With the formation of the new Party, Transformation National Alliance, do you think Moses Kuria will manage to become President Kenyatta’s heir in the Mt Kenya politics?
