The cracks within Deputy President William Ruto’s hustler nation are seemingly widening as the DP and Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria fall at loggerheads over party politics.
In a public outburst, the Gatundu South legislator had earlier rebuked Ruto and the UDA party, which is associated with the DP, for attempting to lock out other parties from the hustler nation while pointing out that the UDA outfit could not be the only vehicle to steer forward the hustlers’ camp ahead of the 2022 elections.
However, in a rejoinder, the second in command condemned Kuria and other politicians who were creating parties along tribal affiliations as he encouraged the youth to embrace leaders based on what they were bringing to the table and not where they come from.
This comes a few weeks after Kuria, Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua and The Service Party leader, Mwangi Kiunjuri announced the mission of their new unity and declared that they would prioritise Mt Kenya region’s interests by forming an inter-party forum for Mt Kenya to take the region to the negotiating table.
The three vocal leaders also outrightly dismissed calls to disband their parties and join one political party.
This begs the question, will Ruto’s influence in Mt Kenya region be affected by these leaders’ failure to fold their parties to join UDA? Could the three leaders jump ship and back Ruto’s nemesis, Raila Odinga ahead of the 2022 elections?
