The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) National Chairman Johnstone Muthama has addressed an alleged existing coalition agreement between the party, Musalia Mudavadi's ANC party and Moses Wetang'ula-led Ford Kenya.
Speaking on Monday, January 31, Muthama said there is no formal coalition agreement between the three parties, noting that they are yet to sign any form of agreement.
The former Machakos Senator said the three parties are working as like-minded friends who saw the need to work together for a better nation.
"We are friends, when the time of agreeing on the coalition terms we will deal with it. Our supporters wherever you are that your party had no coalition agreement it has not signed any coalition agreement and if that will be done later alone you will be notified," Muthama said.
Muthama further stated that if elections were to be held today, Deputy President William Ruto would contest as UDA presidential candidate while Mudavadi would go to the polls as ANC presidential candidate.
"As far as we are concerned, DP Ruto is the the UDA presidential candidate, and Musalia Mudavadi is the presidential candidate of ANC, in other words we are independent but talking as friends," he stated.
He also dismissed claims that power positions had already been shared among coalition partners; Mudavadi and Wetang'ula.
"There is a a report in the Standard two days ago which was not the true position of what is happening in the relationship between UDA, ANC and FORD Kenya
"The reporter said there is power sharing agreement in which certain positions were to be given to certain individuals and that there would be zoning of the country, I wish to deny that in totality," Muthama stated.
