The declaration of Nandi Hills Member of Parliament Hon. Alfred Keter by the Returning Officer as United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Party nominee in the just concluded primaries has been nullified by the Party's Dispute Tribunal.
Kerer now faces an anxious wait with minimal hopes of flying the UDA flag during the upcoming General Election. The matter has now been referred to the National Elections Board (NEC) for appropriate action. Hon. Benard Kitur who came in second behind the incumbent Member of Parliament Alfred Keter looks certain to clinch the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Party ticket ahead of the August polls.
Nandi Hills' UDA Party primaries were last week postponed to Tuesday this week following the death of Parliamentary hopeful Hon. Wesley Kogo who died in a nasty road carnage.
The Tuesday nominations saw the incumbent Member of Parliament Hon. Alfred Keter clinch the UDA ticket after garnering a whooping 10,273 votes, with his close competitor Hon. Bernard Kitur managing a little over seven thousand votes.
