Date set for UDA repeat elections in Kasarani

By Peter Ochieng

The date has been set for United Democratic Alliance (UDA) grassroots repeat elections in Kasrani constituency, Nairobi County.  

The polls will be repeated in Mwiki and Clay City Wards after initially being disrupted.

UDA elections board chairman Anthony Mwaura in a statement on Monday said the polls will be repeated on Tuesday, May 28, 2024, at the party’s headquarters.

“Pursuant to the directive issued by the election and nomination dispute resolution committee, notice is hereby given to all relevant stakeholders, that the UDA national elections board shall conduct repeat elections in Kasarani Constituency. The repeat elections shall be held on Tuesday, the 28th of May, 2024, at Hustler Centre,” said the chairman.

“All concerned parties are hereby informed to take due notice and govern themselves accordingly,” Mwaura added.

The exercise will be for all elective positions.

So far, the ruling party led by President William Ruto has held repeat election in various Wards across the country. The Wards include Nangina, Nabuku/Namboko, Agenda/Nunguba and Bwiri in Busia County, Masool and Lelan in West Pokot County, and Dandora 4, Embakasi and Kayole South in Nairobi County.    

The party has held grassroots elections across five counties; Nairobi, Narok, West Pokot, Homabay, and Busia.

UDA says it has 853, 00 registered members in Nairobi, Homa Bay (141,000), Narok (233,000), Busia (141,000) and West Pokot has 208,000.

While announcing UDA grassroots elections 8 months ago, President Ruto said that no one would be handed a seat in the party on a silver platter.

“Any leader aspiring to hold any party position must start socialising with the members since no one will be given the seat on a silver platter,” he said, then.

“Members will vote for every office in our constitution in a strategy that seeks to unite community and interests in every corner of the country.”

On his part, Secretary General Cleophas Malala said the exercise was geared towards making UDA the biggest political party in Kenya.
