Lusaka says he has not joined Kenya Kwanza Alliance

Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka has said that he will not join the Kenya Kwanza Alliance, which is linked to Deputy President William Ruto’s Ford Kenya party.
While admitting that he met with Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetangula, Lusaka clarified that the meeting was “purely a consultative meeting, one of several that I am holding ahead of the Senate’s dissolution as I assess my options ahead of the August 9 elections.”
He maintained that he did not announce his membership in FORD Kenya at any point throughout the meeting or conversation.
“Let me clarify unequivocally that this is not the case. “What is real is that I met the top leadership of Ford Kenya today in Nairobi, led by my brother Senator Moses Wetang’ula,” he stated.
He stated that “when the time for me to make a decision as to which political party I shall operate within at the time of the elections, I shall gladly share that decision publicly with the rest of the country in the presence of the media.”
Earlier, a source close to Lusaka confirmed to Capital News that the Speaker had indeed defected.
“Yes, he has always been in FORD Kenya because that is where he belongs,” the source said.
