A Storm is brewing within the United Democratic Alliance, putting incumbent and Aspirants eyeing the same seat ahead of the 2022 General election.
At the center of the tussle is an alleged scheme to lock out strong aspirants from various seats being eyed by the party's bigwigs.
The coordinators are being accused of frustrating aspirants in different counties, even though the party's leadership has been assuring members that they will conduct party grassroots elections, but United Democratic Alliance officials might eventually be people proposed by sitting legislators through boardroom deals, using their closeness to the Deputy President and party secretariat.
Most of Members of Parliament have been frustrating their competitors by making sure the aspirants do not meet and when they attempt to, the legislators allegedly use their influence to send police to scuttle the meetings.
Some aspirants have moved to smaller parties as plan B should they be blocked out by United Democratic Alliance.
UDA Communication Director Wanjohi Githae said that this is an indication that the party is popular among aspirants across the country.
