Raila MPs Join Uhuru Kenyatta's Party


In Kenya 40 opposition members of parliament and 3 county governors today defected to the ruling coalition as president Uhuru Kenyatta launched the jubilee party which came out of the merger of 11 political parties. Even as the opposition leader dismissed the defections as inconsequential, the newly-launched jubilee party top leaders promised to ignore criticism from the opposition from now henceforth and concentrate on uniting Kenya’s diverse ethnic communities.’
