Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura has made clear the relationship between himself and the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party amid claims of being close to the outfit and its leadership.

He is among leaders working with Deputy President William Ruto and those being seen as those working closely with the new party, which is also being linked to Ruto, the Jubilee Party Deputy Leader.

Speaking on Thursday, however, he rubbished having any relationship with the party, saying that he remains a member of the ruling Jubilee Party.

He spoke during a disciplinary hearing with Jubilee's Disciplinary Committee, where he also pledged to remain loyal to the President Uhuru Kenyatta-led party and its leadership.

"I have been loyal to the party and I have never spoken ill of it. I respect the leadership and every other person in the party," he told the committee, according to The Standard.

He as well rubbished the charges levelled against him, including wearing branding material associated with other parties, stating that he has never disrespected Jubilee's constitution.

Mwaura, formerly a Nominated MP, as well denied claims of speaking ill of Jubilee, but at the same time accused the committee of being used by some top officials to frustrate and possibly eject him.

"You already have a determined position. The party's vice chair David Murathe has publicly said that I am a candidate for expulsion," he added.

Mwaura is also being pursued by the ODM party, which wants him held responsible for the chaos that was recently witnessed in Githurai, where the party leader Raila Odinga was pelted with stones by angry youth.

The party has accused him of inciting area youth against the former Prime Minister, who had him nominated to the National Assembly before he joined hands with Uhuru and Ruto ahead of the 2017 polls.
