Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party director of elections and Suna East MP Junet Mohamed has revealed that new coalitions and alliances are just about to start.
Junet, in a direct attack on Deputy President William Ruto’s allies on Tuesday night, said that the Tanga Tanga camp was living in denial.
Through his official Twitter account, Junet said DP Ruto’s allies are wrong to oppose the coalition between President Uhuru Kenyatta-led Jubilee Party and Gideon Moi’s Kenya African National Union (Kanu).
According to Junet, new coalitions and alliances are just about to start.
“Why is Tanga Tanga opposing the Kanu-Jubilee coalition? New coalitions and alliances are just about to start. This is the problem of living in denial. You get stuck in a past that no longer exists. Things have changed. Kenya has changed. Siasa bado,” Junet tweeted.
Junet’s comment comes amid protests against the Jubilee-Kanu post-poll deal by DP Ruto allies.
On Tuesday, 12th May, they moved to court to challenge the new political deal between President Kenyatta and Kanu boss Moi.
The case challenging the post-election coalition pact signed last week on Friday was filed in Nairobi by Hillary Kosgei.
At the same time, Jubilee Party deputy secretary-general Caleb Kositany on Tuesday morning delivered a protest letter to Registrar of Political Parties Ann Nderitu.
Kositany said the National Executive Committee had not met and, therefore, “it could not have sanctioned such action in absentia”.
Kositany also told the RPP that the deal agreement deposited in her office did not have the legal backing since due process was not followed.
On Tuesday, the Political Parties Dispute Tribunal issued interim orders stopping the Jubilee Party from executing its coalition agreement with Kanu.
After an appeal by the Deputy Secretary-General Kositany, Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika, and the National Assembly Majority Chief Whip Benjamin Washiali, the tribunal ruled that matter be certified as urgent.
