The Service Party (TSP) leader Mwangi Kiunjuri has warned Deputy President William Ruto against his call for six-piece voting pattern, saying the move is tantamount to weakening Mt Kenya leaders.
Speaking during the opening of TSP offices in Kathwana, Chuka Igamba Ng'ombe, in Tharaka Nithi County, Kiunjuri said Mt Kenya leaders should be firm in their resolve to protect their political vehicles, as this will earn them respect in the eyes of presidential hopefuls they wish to support.
"Kama vyama vya kisiasa lazima tuheshimiane (We have to respect one another). Don't say you were frustrated when you are also trying to frustrate others. It will be dangerous if we all get into one vehicle," he said.
The TSP leader said pre- and post-election coalitions will be entered into only if there will be existing political parties with backing.
While advocating for "mix-and-match voting pattern", Kiunjuri said party euphoria may yield poor leaders who only ride on party popularity, but no tangible development records to show.
