Mistrust delaying URP/TNA merger, says MP
25 February 2016, 09:20
Nairobi - A URP member of Parliament has said that the delayed merger of Jubilee affiliate parties is a result of mistrust between TNA and URP parties.
Bomet central MP, Ronald Tunoi said there is a lot of mistrust among TNA and URP MPs that is not shown in public.
He said the two sides do not trust each other fully and there is a lot being done behind the scenes to kill the merger plan.
Speaking Wednesday evening in Nakuru town, Tunoi said that the merger might not happen as planned because both sides do not want it to happen.

"The truth is that both URP and TNA are skeptical about the merger and things are being done behind the scenes to block the merger," said Tunoi.
He added: "It will not be a surprise if we don't merge because that is what most MPs want anyway."
The URP MP said the ongoing NYS scandal has further dented prospects for the merger because it appears to be a witch-hunt between URP and TNA.
"This NYS drama is working against the Jubilee coalition because it is an inside war. If it is not handled well, the merger will never happen," he said.
