Deputy President William Ruto has already declared that he will be vying for the 2022 General Election on a UDA ticket.

Ruto is on a mission to consolidate his supporters under one party which has put him into a collision course with Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria.

Kuria has maintained that he will only join forces on his own terms which is through his own political vehicle.

In a statement on his Facebook page, he urged the party's officials to be open to accomodate his views, adding that lack of tolerance was what lead to the 'death' of the ruling party, Jubilee.

"The truth of the matter is that the United Democratic Alliance which they purport to portray as the only vehicle in the region is only one member of the Hustler Nation. Further, the Hustler Nation is and can not be owned by any particular individual as we started it all as a mass movement and an idea whose time has come," The MP said.

Kuria added, "It is also a fact that UDA is perceived to be dominated by incumbent MPs who are hell bent to lock out their potential challengers out of the 2022 race,"
