Local Government Assistant Minister Lewis Nguyai has challenged politicians from Mount Kenya region to dissolve their parties and join The National Alliance (TNA) party in a bid to support the presidential aspirant, Uhuru Kenyatta.
Speaking in Olkalou, Nguyai said that TNA will only consider New Ford Kenya and United Republican Party(URP) to retain their identity while all the rest must be dissolved.
“Some are saying they are in the GNU, UDF and PNU Alliance and they are supporting Uhuru Kenyatta. They also say they are searching for their own MPs, but we wonder where Uhuru will get his numbers for presidency,” said Nguyai.
Nguyai foretold a repeat of the 2007 general election scenario where Kibaki was elected President with only 33 MPs while ODM had 110, and the question arose how he had won the election with such a small number of MPs.
He noted that the President had to incorporate members of the smaller parties in his government who later complicated service delivery by nagging him with numerous demands of ministerial posts and other appointments.
“We are saying never again. We better elect dogs who will be barking the tune of TNA in parliament than these leaders. We want TNA leadership from county representatives to the President,” he said.
He continued, “We are warning them, if they won’t dissolve these parties, we are coming to the ground to finish them politically. We want to speak in one voice from Kikuyu to Mbeere and all over,” said Nguyai.
He accused the United Democratic Forum Party(UDF) of seeking an alternative in event that Uhuru may be barred from contesting for Presidency by the International Criminal Court(ICC).
“We don’t need a plan B. Our plan A is Uhuru and plan B is Uhuru, period,” said Nguyai.
