Kenya Kwanza Coalition
Former CS Mwangi Kiunjuri has opened up on joining the newly formed Kenya Kwanza coalition that boasts William Ruto, Musalia Mudavadi, and Moses Wetangula.
While speaking to the media, Kiunjuri expressed his support for the coalition but stated that he has had no significant discussions with DP Ruto or the UDA party.
“You already know who my friend is but we’ve never had any serious discussion with him. I have not discussed anything with UDA on the way forward, and we said clearly that this kind of discussion will only ensure if we respect each other, that anyone who wants to discuss with TSP must acknowledge that our party is a strong party if there is no respect to each part TSP is ready to go independent.” The former CS stated.
Kinjuri was speaking to the media in response to Jubilee Vice-Chair David Murathe’s remarks that the TSP had joined the Azimio la Umoja coalition, which is allied with ODM leader Raila Amolo Odinga.
“We are disturbed that some people have released statements on behalf of TSP, suggesting we are in talks or have joined Azimio. I want to make it very clear that we’ve never had talks with Azimio or any of their leader, we’ve never opened that chat with them and we are not ready in opening any conversation with any party for now,” Mwangi Kiunjuri remarked.
This comes barely a week after Kiunjuri launched his candidacy for the Laikipia East parliamentary seat in the August 9 elections, promising to finish development projects that were left unfinished after he left office in 1997.
