"He Grew Up Knowing Dictatorship" DP Ruto's Lack Of Competitor In UDA Ticket Raises Eyebrows

While meeting United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party aspirants from Narok, Kajiado and Nakuru Counties at his Karen Residence yesterday on the Tuesday of September 27th, Deputy President William Ruto once again reiterated that UDA is built of firm principles of Democracy from which it will never deviate.

That in the upcoming elections, members of UDA will only get tickets to vie for whatever positions they desire after going through free and fair nominations.

That according to him, "free and fair nominations aren't favours from the party but rather the right of every member of the party" and since UDA is a democratic party, the same will be upheld come next year.

A day after that tough talk from the DP and attempt to make UDA look to be the most democratic party in the country, Philip Etale who is Raila Odinga's communications strategists has blasted him and his party for actually "lacking democracy".

Taking to Facebook in the morning of today without mentioning names but while undoubtedly talking about UDA, Etale said that the party always try to make itself look to be the most democratic one in the country unlike other party when it actually lacks democracy.

That for instance, it hasn't been established who the apparent Presidential Candidate of the party (DP Ruto) will be competing against in the Presidential nominations prior to getting the party ticket the way he was saying things will be done.

"They talk about DEMOCRACY, branding other parties UNDEMOCRATIC. They have not told us whom their small god is contesting with for their party’s presidential ticket. A dictator is born, not made. He grew up knowing dictatorship hence no room for competition," he said.
