Wednesday, December 14, 2022 –Politician Kipruto Arap Kirwa is now regretting joining Raila Odinga at the height of the last presidential campaigns.
In his interview held on Wednesday December 14, the former United Democratic Alliance UDA Party Vice Chairman said he never anticipated a Ruto win during that time.
He recounted how he had to come up with a decision of ditching Ruto for Odinga saying he was very sure that this time around the Deep State was going to hand Raila the Statehouse.
“I was not decamping to join the opposition; I was hoping Azimio la Umoja coalition would make it to government, so it was the lowest moment for me,” Kirwa stated.
The ex-UDA National Vice Chairman told his host on the interview that he is slowly coming to terms with the loss and that he is also happy that Ruto is working to unite the country.
Kirwa has, therefore, pointed out that most of Raila’s politicians are not only arrogant but also indisciplined and a know-it-all type of leaders who will always cost Odinga the big seat.
Just falling short of naming them, Kirwa indicated that it was due to their know-it-all attitude that the last election was lost to William Ruto.
He also said, it is wrong to blame the Wafula Chebukati-led electoral commission for the loss in the recent polls.
“In every election, save the 2002 one that Kibaki won, we have vilified the electoral commission, whether Electoral Commission of Kenya (ECK) or Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC),” he stated.
He, however, pleaded with Ruto to go on with plans to create the official office of the opposition because it will be a good gesture for those who were beaten.
