UDA, which was was recently suspended by the court has not explained how Bishop Margaret Wanjiru’s ticket would stand.
Alex Kanya will fly the UDA flag in the Matungu constituency by-election while Evans Kakai will contest on the party ticket in Kabuchai constituency.
Former Machakos Senator, Johnston Muthama, a close ally to DP Ruto and UDA Party Chairman said the party is not new to Kenyans but has rather just been rebranded.
Muthama said the party members, having belonged to various political outfits in the past, felt they were not moving in the right direction hence felt it was time to start their own journey.
“There’s nothing strange with what we’re doing, many of us have been in different political parties and coalitions. Some could not manage to get us where we wanted to go, so there’s a beginning and an end to everything. We realized that we needed a more open, democratic vehicle that will be different from all other political parties that we have witnessed before,” said the former Machakos Senator.
Bishop Wanjiru alias BMW said she has no competition expressing confidence at clinching the seat that was left vacant after the County Assembly impeached then Governor Mike Sonko via the Senate.
