It’s no longer a question that Deputy President William Ruto is on a winding and lonely political path ahead of the 2022 general election.
This comes after a flurry of confirmed reports that his newly established UDA party has been tainted by allegations of issuing direct tickets and plotting to rig the upcoming Nominations process in April, prompting numerous allies to consider leaving the party to join the vehicles.
Fresh reports indicate that another vocal Tangatanta supporter (one of Ruto’s Chief Campaigners in the Rift Valley region) has left the UDA Party, claiming a lack of democracy as the reason.
“I have decided to quit from UDA and will now run for the Kapseret seat as an independent candidate,” Franics Murgor declared after meetings and conversations with his supporters.
He was anticipated to face Sudi in the party primaries, but now claims that UDA, like all other parties, will face significant challenges during the April nominations.
