Leader Who Left UDA Expose What Used to Happen in Karen as They Used to be Summoned for Breakfasts

Former Cabinet Minister Kipruto arap Kirwa has disclosed several activities that happened in Ruto's Karen home that caused jitters before he decided to bolt out of the United Democratic Alliance party. Kirwa says he had no option but to quit the Deputy President William Ruto’s UDA party at making keen observations.

In an interview with The Standard, Kirwa claims that lack of consultation in decision making process in Deputy President William Ruto's party is the threat that pushed him out of the party. He added that there is no consultations in micromanagement of UDA processes.

Kipruto has claimed that the UDA National Executive Council (NEC) was sidelined in making any key decisions that that is within its mandate. Kirwa further explained how they used to be summoned for breakfast meetings in Karen where predetermined decisions were read out leaving them surprised.

“We could be summoned in the evening for a breakfast meeting in Karen where names would be read out, proposed and endorsed, yet the task of undertaking that process should have been done by the council,” Kirwa told The Standard.

Kirwa further revealed how UDA's elections board was selected that showed favoritism in the Ruto-led party while some people were being sidelined. He said that the elections board, which oversaw the nominations was interviewed and selected by NEC which was under their leadership. However, Kirwa says that they were surprised one morning after being called for a breakfast in Karen and names of elections board were read out without any consultations.

“We were called one morning for breakfast and in the midst members of the election board were introduced and after breakfast we passed a resolution,” Kirwa said as he pointed out that he was rattled by the manner in which they were appointed.
