Ruto welcomes Alfred Mutua, blasts Uhuru and Raila
Deputy President William Ruto has welcomed Machakos governor Alfred Mutua to his Kenya Kwanza Alliance while blasting President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga whom he’s accused of practicing politics of conmanship.
Mutua on Monday ditched Uhuru and Raila’s Azimio coalition in favor of Ruto in a move that has shocked many in political circles.
“I will traverse the country and campaign for Ruto. I now believe he is the best person to lead this country,” said Mutua at a press briefing when he announced his exit from Azimio.
And Ruto has since welcomed Mutua with open arms.
The people of Kenya have rejected blackmail, deceit and conmanship in our politics.Those who've taken our country hostage using patronage,force and impunity watajua hawajui na Wakenya hawapangwingwi.Karibu Gov Alfred Mutua & MCC party to Kenyan Kwanza family, the Hustler Nation. pic.twitter.com/tIXnNzxI0g

Ruto also stressed that Mutua quit Raila and Uhuru’s coalition because the two senior politicians are not honest in their dealings.

I wish Kingi and Alfred Mutua all the best in Kenya Kwanza. Azimio will not continue entertaining underwhelming characters. In the same measure, Gideon Moi and Kalonzo should stop giving conditions. Let's all sacrifice for a better Kenya under Raila Odinga's presidency.
