Nominated Senator defends Malala on Kenya Kwanza Parties merger

UDA nominated senator Tabitha Mutinda has defended the party’s Secretary General Cleophas Malala’s calls for parties under Kenya Kwanza to merge.

Speaking in Nairobi Mutinda said that if the parties have the same agenda then merging should not be a problem.

She noted that the coalition lost many seats because they divided the votes giving rival parties a chance to win.

According to her, the merger will ensure the coalition bags many seats in the 2027 General election and the leaders will be able to work together for the benefit of the country.

“Like in Nairobi UDA has only four MP seats and few members of the County Assembly. We divided small portions of votes amongst ourselves giving our competitors a smooth win,” Senator Tabitha said.

“We have the same agenda then why are we disagreeing? We should come together and focus on supporting our coalition leader because we have a lot of issues that have not been addressed. Let’s put aside our selfish interests and center our attention on Mwannanchi who needs us to work for them,” she added.

Last week, Malala called for parties like Maendeleo Chapchap, PAA, ANC, and FORD Kenya to merge and form one strong party.

His sentiments have caused an uproar among leaders in the coalition with most of them ruling out the merger. Maendeleo Chap Chap also dismissed the remarks saying they were focused on growing their party. Missed the story? check it out below;
