Kenya Kwanza loses majority in parliament

Published on

Kenya Kwanza alliance, connected with President William Ruto, lost its effort to dominate both Parliament and Senate after the Registrar of Political Parties stated that decamped parties were still members of Azimio La Umoja.

In a letter to the leaders of both chambers, Anne Nderitu, the Registrar of Political Parties, revealed that Maendeleo Chap Chap (MCC) led by former Machakos governor Alfred Mutua and Pamoja African Alliance (PAA) led by Senate speaker Amason King were not recognised Kenya Kwanza alliance members.

Ugenya Member of Parliament David Ochieng’s Movement for Democracy and Growth (MDG) Party, and Ali Roba’s United Democratic Movement (UDM) both filed petitions to formally join Kenya Kwanza after the elections, quitting Azimio in the process to join Kenya kwanza.

Nderitu told the legislators, however, that the petitions had not yet been decided. Thanks to her elucidation, the 26 political parties that originally comprised Azimio are still active as a coalition, and Kenya Kwanza has only 15 parties.

The disagreeing parties were still linked in Azimio since the agreement filed with the Registrar of Political Parties states that no party can leave from the coalition six months before or three months after the General Election.
