A bird in hand is worth two in the bush.
There is no better proverb that could best portray the political situation that is currently ongoing in the Deputy President’s William Ruto allied party, United Democratic Alliance (UDA).
A storm has hit UDA as politicians allied to the DP are adamant to form an alliance or super party with some having reservations as to whether the Hustler Nation will use UDA in the 2022 elections.
UDA Secretary-General Veronica Maina had issued a statement that the former Cabinet Secretary for Agriculture Mwangi Kiunjuri and Former South Mugirango MP Omingo Magara would be headed to the party.
The statement that was immediately denounced by the two on Monday.
This comes as the bonafide Hustler leadership led by Rigathi Gichagua, Kimani Ngunjiri and Kimani Ichung’wah had made leading calls for friendly parties to join UDA.
They were targetting people affiliated or those who own ‘smaller parties’ with Kiunjuri leading The Service Party (TSP) whereas Magara leads the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
However, a big number of DP Ruto’s supporters are of the opinion to join UDA as partners and not as individuals.
This has clearly been evident with the recent by-elections in the country whereby Moses Kuria’s People Empowerment Party (PEP) scooped a seat in Juja constituency and a ward in Murang’a while donning the Hustler Nation tag during the campaigns.
The move that has triggered dispute in the tanga tanga group with some forces around Ruto accusing the controversial legislator of using the DP’s “Hustler constituency” to foster his own political ambitions.
In January 2020, President Uhuru Kenyatta kicked Kiunjuri out of his government in a move that may not have come as a surprise to many.
This is despite Kiunjuri having dissolved his party GNU to join the Jubilee party, a move that he might have highly regretted.
Thus, if history is anything to go by more politicians will only join UDA as partners.
