Good morning Kenyans.
We are just four days into the new year and things in the political world are getting intense.
Deputy President William Ruto made headlines after his abrupt U-turn on forming a coalition.
Ruto announced that he was ready to hold talks and form a coalition with like minded people ahead of the August election.
The second in command made true of his decision, and invited ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula.
Reports indicated that anyone else aside from Mudavadi and Wetangula would have to join UDA if he or she wanted to work with the party.
This brings up the big question, would a Ruto, Mudavadi and Wetangula team up defeat ODM leader Raila Odinga come August 9?
These are the news making headlines on the Opera News App:
