“We will have more than 41 MPs joining us from other opposition parties ,” said Mr Ruto.

 “This is a sign that these leaders have decided that the die is cast that you are either in a national party or you stay in an ethnic party,” said Mr Duale.

We are expecting more political re-alignments in the coming months before the upcoming 2017 elections.
