New Political Party Opens Offices Across the Country Ahead of 2022

New political parties are usually formed by defectors from other big political parties. A case example is UDA, taken over by political bigwigs. Offices of such parties are normally located in their strongholds only. New political parties on their part usually have a single office or none at all depending on the mission of the party officials. This is not the case with a newly formed party, it's sweeping across the country rapidly a few months to general elections.

Chama Ya Mapatano Party launched in June 2021 in a show of might, uniqueness, and bravery is opening offices across the country. The past two weeks for the party leader have been packed to the bream. She has opened up to 13 offices across the country. The 13 are each in different counties 

These are; Nairobi head office in Langata constituency, Narok county, Uasingishu, Nyamira, Kisii, Bomet, Nandi, Taita Taveta, Nyeri, Nyandarua, Kakamega, West Pokot, and Kirinyaga.

Giving it a touch of nationalism, the 13 are spread in all the regions, Coast, Nyanza, Rift Valley, Nairobi, and central Kenya. Party leader Damaris Too says that the remaining regions are on the list and sooner, they too will have an office. She denied claims by media reports that CYM is a Rift Valley party.

"Eastern, North Eastern, we are soon landing there, as you can attest Chama Ya Mapatano is not a Rift Valley party as many claims. Our target is to have elected leaders from across the country who will push the party's vision of women and youth empowerment," Damaris Too said.

About how she finances the party, she is surprisingly using her resources in the offices and paying staff. She says that her dream of delivering women and youth from the bondage of political conmanship pushes her to do the unthinkable. She will not however go for the presidency but to the upper house. She reveals that she is vying for the senatorial seat.
