Bungoma Deputy Governor and Senatorial aspirant Prof. Charles Kibanani Ngome and CECM for Roads, Infrastructure and Public Works Collins Mukhongo yesterday Tuesday, 30 Nov. 2021 visited the Deputy President William Samoei Ruto at his Karen Residence in Nairobi County where they were officially welcomed into UDA.

From Prof. Ngome’s utterances, he seems keen to wreck the lion party even after joining UDA as his party of choice for 2022. Professor indicated that he will ensure he brings Ford Kenya to its knees in favor of UDA.

It must be remembered that Professor Ngome is a specialist in “testing waters” (Omwinyambi) one who says things for the purposes of getting a reaction, a reaction that would then advise future actions. He is nevertheless very good at the mic and would drive home a point that would otherwise prove impossible.

The move by Ngome is nevertheless the clearest indication that the coup plotters will all be joining Ruto’s UDA
