Nairobi - The Jubilee Alliance Party is likely to gain national momentum after Deputy President William Ruto hinted at the formation of one party to take them back to the House on the hill.
Ruto confirmed that URP, TNA and other parties affiliated to the Jubilee coalition will merge before the 2017 general elections.
“We will make ... a party of exclusivity and geared to drive Kenya ahead,” Ruto said.
The DP spoke on Saturday during his tour of the Rift Valley when he said there was need to unite Kenyans even before the campaigns kick off.
Governor Kabogo who had accompanied him said he will work to see to it that the current government holds on to power for at least the next three terms.

Kabogo said that any leader who had interest of the people at heart would not fight against a constitution that Kenyans voted for.
The Governor said the controversial sentiments over Ruto's Presidential bid in 2022 were misunderstood.
"I meant that Ruto has to work hard to win the hearts of people," Kabogo said.
Ruto supported his words saying it was good advice and he won't rest until he consolidates votes from across the country.
"I thank Kabogo for the advice. I can’t sleep in my house and expect to be voted for. In fact, am headed to Western Kenya for more vote hunting," said Ruto.
Ruto has been on the hunt for votes in various parts of the country
