Ex-Jubilee vice chair David Murathe has said those who are against Deputy President William Ruto will form a new coalition to stop him from succeeding President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.

David Murathe, who resigned as Jubilee party vice chairperson on Sunday told the Star yesterday that the coalition will defeat Ruto.

“We are ready to form a new coalition and I can tell you for sure it will crush Ruto and his group. I can tell him for free that he will be lucky to be an opposition leader,” Murathe

On Sunday night, Murathe said that he was forming a stop-Ruto movement.

“We are dealing with a personality [Ruto] whom some of us believe is not suitable for that office. He has his supporters, we have our own people who are thinking alike. We will have these formations and Kenyans will select which one will work best for them,” Murathe said during an interview on KTN news on Sunday night.

Reports indicate that Murathe is plotting to form a new party or alternatively join an existing one. If he forms a new party will then form an alliance with Raila Odinga’s ODM, Kalonzo Musyoka’s Wiper and ANC’s Musalia Mudavadi; with one presidential candidate.

Murathe is strongly opposed to DP’s presidential bid.

He says the Ruto is unfit to lead the country, promising to do everything possible to stop Ruto.
