Unveiling of his new party, might results as blow to KANU since he is the only governor who was elected through on the party’s ticket.
He warned the Deputy president Dr. William Ruto against his will to form coalitions. Ruto has been hesitant to enter into coalition agreements with other small parties, a matter that may derailed his presidential ambitions.
Lunyangapuo Reiterated that what was achieved through the coalition government headed by retired president Mwai Kibaki and Odm leader Raila Odinga was much more.
His sentiment comes as ODM Leader Raila Odinga and Deputy President Dr. William Ruto have position to seek votes from Kenyans ahead of 2021 general election. It is believed that Lunyangapuo Party will merger with any of the two political bigwigs
