Muranga Leaders Rebel Against Ruto as They Openly Claim UDA Wave in Mt Kenya Has Gradually Fallen

In recent months, a group of leaders from Muranga County in Kenya have openly rebelled against President William Ruto, claiming that the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) wave in Mount Kenya has gradually fallen. These leaders, who were once loyal supporters of Ruto and his UDA party, have now called for a shift in allegiance and have declared their support for opposition leader Raila Odinga.

The discontent among these leaders stems from their belief that Ruto has abandoned the interests of Mount Kenya in favor of other regions. They argue that the UDA has failed to deliver on its promises to the region, including economic development and infrastructure projects. Additionally, these leaders have accused Ruto of using the UDA as a tool to advance his own political ambitions, rather than working towards the betterment of the region and its people.

The rebellion of these Muranga leaders is a significant blow to Ruto and the UDA, as the region has traditionally been a stronghold for the party. This defection highlights the growing disillusionment with Ruto and the UDA among some members of the Mount Kenya region, and could potentially lead to further defections in the future.

It is clear that the UDA wave in Mount Kenya is losing steam, and that Ruto and his party are facing mounting challenges as they approach the next general election. Whether the UDA will be able to recover from this setback and regain the support of these Muranga leaders remains to be seen. However, it is clear that the UDA will need to work hard to address the concerns of these leaders and the people of Mount Kenya if it hopes to maintain its political dominance in the region.
