Saboti MP Caleb Amisi has hit out at deputy president William Ruto over his attacks on leaders that are crafting alliances of the 2022 general elections for branding them tribalists.

Mr. Amisi noted that seeking partnerships with other like-minded leaders in the quest for leadership does not amount to tribalism since no one can win power on his own.

“Recent history has proven tha​​t alliances are the way to go. Those who want to go solo should not brand those that are uniting as tribalists,” he spoke while launching NGCDF classes and toilers at Sikulu secondary school.

The legislator exuded confidence that talks to have his party leader Rails Odinga craft a working formula with Okoa Kenya (OKA) will eventually materialize.

“ODM worked with the team in NASA and I believe they will agree to form a formidable political powerhouse that will form the next government,” said Mr. Amisi.

The MP also called on proponents of the Building Bridges Initiative’s constitution amendment bid which suffered a defeat at the court of appeal to shift their focus on the next general election.

“Let us focus on winning the general election then any attempt to amend the constitution can come later since we are law abiding leaders who respect the decision of the courts,” said the legislator.

Separately, Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa has said the Ford Kenya party will now focus on how it will gunner more seats in the next general elections saying they have now put the BBO issue behind them.

“The party respects the rule of law and as such will not be part of any plans if there are any to have an appeal at the Supreme Court. We want to focus on the next general election,” Mr. Wamalwa in Kitale.
