After Kirinyaga county women representative dumped DP Ruto's United Democratic Alliance over allegations of unfair and favoured nominations, another key aspirant who recently joined UDA may soon hit the road from UDA after he raised allegations similar to Ngirici's.

Moses Kiarie who recently decamped CCK for Ruto's UDA has hit out at Faith Gitau's unchecked control of UDA party structures in Nyandarua county. Both Faith Gitau and Moses Kiarie are fighting for UDA's party ticket for the county's gubernatorial race.

Kiarie complained that Gitau has full control of UDA structures in Nyandarua and might use her power to lobby for and influence her nomination in the primaries that will be held in the coming days.

Hitting back at Kiarie, Gitau Faith alleged that that Kiarie is a trouble maker. Gitau contested for the Governor's seat in 2017 but lost. She said that she earned the power to control the party after her efforts won UDA the Rurrii MCA seat - the first ever UDA win in mount Kenya.

Ruto is on record saying that giving loyalists party tickets is something that UDA will not consider to avoid wrangles. He has promised free and fair party primaries. Will Kiarie walk out?
