RUTO chased MUDAVADI out of Jubilee alliance - MPsPolitics 00:02
Monday December 24, 2012 - A Section of MPs allied to Deputy Prime Minister Musalia Mudavadi have blamed Eldoret North MP William Ruto for Mudavadi’s exit from the Jubilee alliance.
Led by Housing minister Soita Shitanda, the MPs said Ruto who is also the United Republican Party (URP) leaders had the authority to ensure there was unity in the alliance but he did not.
The MPs were addressing a campaign rally at Matete grounds in Malava District, where they said Ruto, as a key member of the alliance, should have prevailed upon his counterpart Uhuru Kenyatta to honour the deal he signed to avoid a fall out.
“Ruto has shown that he does not believe in his URP party’s slogan of kusema na kutenda,” Shitanda said.
“If he is a strong believer of this slogan, then he should have ensured that Uhuru abides by the deal he appended his signature on.”Shitanda added.
The Minister said UDF and Mudavadi will still make an impact in the forthcoming general election, despite being axed in the Jubilee coalition.
