Nairobi - The Daily Nation has revelead that the delay in the signing of a pre-election coalition deal by presidential aspirants in the G7 Alliance is due to turf wars involving Cabinet ministers Charity Ngilu and Eugene Wamalwa.
Sources close to the negotiations between Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta (TNA) and Eldoret North MP William Ruto (URP) say the latter’s team is wary of the pace with which the two ministers want the pact concluded.
MPs who have been attending the negotiations said Ngilu’s Narc wants the deal signed as soon as possible to eliminate the possibility of her political rival, Vice-President Kalonzo Musyoka, being brought on board, whilst Wamalwa (New Ford Kenya) wants to ensure that UDF presidential aspirant Musalia Mudavadi is not in too.
