On September 15, United Democratic Party national chairman honourable Johnson Muthama together with the party's secretary general Veronica Maina are said to have presented a list 31 officials to the Registrar of political parties as UDA's official office holders.
Yesterday, Nation Africa made public the list of the 31 party officials presented to registrar of political parties.
The list has sparked a storm in the party with members claiming that some seats were given to members who joined the party late. Some staunch followers claimed that they have been left out mistakenly.
The dispute is said to have send UDA's WhatsApp group into flames forcing secretary General Veronica Maina to send an urgent message declaring that Nation Africa's list as not 'a true reflection'. " The list is not a true reflection of the original list," she texted to UDA's WhatsApp group.
When contacted the Registrar of political parties Ann Nderitu indeed confirmed that the names revealed by Nation Africa are the same names Veronica Maina presented to the body. Veronica went silent after members of the media reached out to her for an explanation.
With this revelation, it is now emerged that UDA's democracy is limited to top officials. Members were not consulted in coming up with the list, they only learnt the names in the list after they were posted by the media.
