Nairobi - The deputy President, William Ruto has said he is a student of Moi politics and that he will follow in the steps of the former President.
Giving an analogy of Moi’s political career and especially his move to ditch KADU for KANU for the sake of his survival, Ruto reiterated that it was necessary for URP to merge with other Jubilee affiliates in order for him to ascend to power in 2022.
Ruto was addressing URP supporters in his home Monday in a bid to woo them to support the formation of the new Jubilee party, The Standard reports.

Last week, UhuRuto announced the merger of all Jubilee affiliate parties into one party ahead of the 2017 elections.
However, news of the merger received mixed reactions especially among members of the DP-led URP party, with some strongly opposing the move on grounds that they were not consulted as Jubilee stakeholders.
An MP affiliated to the Jubilee coalition filed a suit last week challenging the merger, prompting the political parties tribunal to put the process on hold.
Nevertheless, the deputy president has insisted that the new Jubilee party, under the slogan ‘Tuko Pamoja’ will help address the challenge of tribalism that has marred Kenyan politics and unite all Kenyans ahead of the forthcoming general election.
