Isolated from government and staring at what could be an anti-establishment stab at the top seat, especially after president Uhuru Kenyatta vanquished and outwitted him for control of the Jubilee Party, the country’s second-in-command has been left with only one option – to DESTROY LARGE EXISTING PARTIES and fund and purchase regional unstable political vehicles which he will force to merge and support his bid in 2022.
We can reveal the parties as follows.
1. Party of Development and Reforms (PDR) — which is associated with Garissa Town MP Aden Duale – This will be the party to galvanize votes for Ruto in northern Kenya and among the Somali community.
2. The New Democrats, linked to former Marakwet West MP David Kiprono Sudi. This will be the party to bring votes from North Rift and Turkana regions.
3. TSP of former CS Mwangi Kiunjuri. This will be the conveyor belt for votes from Lower Central and parts of Central Rift valley, which includes Nyahururu, Molo, Nakuru etc.
4. M.D.G. – Linked to David Ochieng the Ugenya MP and purchased from wife of late Trade Unionist Dennis Akumu is the party Ruto is eying in the former Nyanza provinces.
5. C.C.P Linked to Wangui Ngirici, the Woman Member of parliament for Kirinyaga. Her party will be in charge of bringing votes to Ruto from Central Region.
6. At the coast DP Ruto is working closely with Jicho Pevu Mohammed Ali and Senator Hassan omar to unveil a regional party. His big problem has been how to bring in the Mijikenda to work in unison with those from Arabic lineages.
7. The big Luhya vote IS THE ONLY BIG challenge to DP Ruto. The stability and resolve of Mudavadi and his ANC party to be on the presidential ballot in 2022 remains a big threat to DP. Hence his attempts to poach Barack Muluka and Eliud Owalo.
The seven other parties that the 2nd in command is said to be involved with and have provisionally been registered as political parties include Kenya Moja People’s Party (KMPP), African Development Congress (ADC), Umoja Summit Party (USP), National Reconstruction Alliance (NRA), Party for Growth and Prosperity (PGP), Entrust Pioneer Political Party (EPPP) and Party for Peace and Democracy (PPD). All are small, regional and possibly briefcase parties that DP allies have purchased.
A party is supposed to have a national outlook. Its name should mean something that is incorporating the whole country What DP Ruto is doing by funding the registration of multiple political parties, by buying and purchasing others, he is again using unorthodox means to divide our national fabric.
The law states that the registrar may refuse an application for the registration of a political party over unacceptable names or abbreviations.
This will be so if the name is obscene or offensive; already used by another political party or has symbol that is used by an already existing entity. That is the reason registration of a party by the name Tangatanga was rejected. We urge the registrar to be on the look out and to guard our unity as a country by rejecting formation of outfits that will destroy us.
