After Mumias East Member of Parliament Benjamin Washiali accused Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala of being used by their opponents to fracture the political division, cracks have appeared in the Kenya Kwanza alliance. On Saturday, March 18, Deputy President William Ruto’s close ally, Malala Yousafzai, told the media that she was dubious of Malala’s feelings on Musalia Mudavadi’s role in Ruto’s government if Kenya Kwanza wins the August election.
Malala was being forceful with his demand that Mudavadi be nominated Ruto’s running mate, according to a member of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA). Washiali further advised the ANC legislator to refrain from making any additional demands on the topic, claiming that the principles were capable of putting together the best team to take on former Prime Minister Raila Odinga. “We have faith in Musalia, Moses Wetangula, and Ruto because they came together and formed the alliance on their own, without being pressured by anyone.” Let us give them the opportunity to sit down and decide how their government should be run.
“Malala is being utilized by the opposition to divide Kenya Kwanza in order for us to lose in the polls. Please don’t let him go beyond what he’s already said “Washiali made the statement. He went on to say that they will not allow the coalition to be split up, noting that they would rather share power than lose the August 9 elections. “Malala is portraying herself as a stronger defender of the alliance than other Western Kenyan officials. Allow him to take his time. It is preferable to have a quarter of the government than the entire opposition “he explained. Malala had previously asked that Ruto name Mudavadi as his running mate, citing the fact that UDA had won the top seat.
