Deputy President William Ruto’s United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party has announced its new political strategy ahead of 2022 General Elections.
On Saturday, August 14, 2021 the UDA party Executive Director Nasho Odanga, revealed that the party had decided to change tactics following alleged failure by Ruto’s allies to recruited new members to the party.
Odanga was speaking in Embu County where he stated that the DP Ruto’s UDA party will directly engage voters through its officials.
The UDA party Executive Director was accompanied by the Ruto’s younger brother, David Ruto.
Sources reveals that the agenda of the meeting was to strategise on recruiting more numbers to the DP Ruto-led UDA party.
The party boss accused the lawmakers of giving priority to their campaigns at the expense of recruiting more members into the UDA party.
In his statement, Odaga urged UDA party leaders to focus on recruiting new members rather than asking them to vote for you in the 2022 elections ahead of the 2022 general elections.
“These MPs we started selling them because we were transiting from Jubilee to UDA. When you campaign for UDA, the first thing to do is to focus on popularising the party and recruitment, rather than asking them to vote for you in the 2022 elections,” Odanga stated.
Reports reveals that the DP’s UDA party plans to hold grassroots elections in October, 2021.
Ruto’s younger brother, David who was a key figure in the consultation meeting had launched the Hustler Nation Movement in Kisumu County earlier this year where he conducted a fundraiser for Nyamasaria bodaboda riders in a city considered as Raila’s stronghold.
Following his event in Kisumu, David was lauded by Ruto saying that he shares vision 2030 of elevating Kenya to a middle income country by ensuring the support of small business enterprises.
Deputy President William Ruto’s UDA party has resolved to go it alone fot the 2022 elections, even as other parties including One Kenya Alliance (OKA) seek to form coalitions.
Ruto will battle it out Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga who is seen by many as President Uhuru Kenyatta’s choice for presidential candidacy endorsement as his replacement.
