"Furaha Kwa Azimio" Azimio Gaining Popularity As UDA Losing In Ruto's Stronghold.

On Monday, Deputy President William Ruto was compelled to convene a crisis conference to address new problems that his UDA party is facing.

The meeting happened after a series of unsuccessful rallies in Central, particularly when his team visited Nyandarua county. 

Given his enormous popularity in the county, the low turnout at his event was troubling. 

Another source of concern was candidates from affiliated parties booing UDA candidates whenever they were given the chance to speak with locals. 

Residents in Kinangop and Kipipiri, for example, openly refused to be addressed by women representative candidate Faith Githau, preferring to be addressed by Service Party candidate Judy Muhia.Githau, senate candidate John Methu, gubernatorial candidate Kiarie Badilisha, and UDA contenders from various constituencies attended the Karen event. 

Miss Githau claims that each political party is responsible for advertising its candidates in the same way that UDA is. 

"We are aware that we are in a coalition with other parties," Githau explained, "but we have candidates [and] our purpose is to publicize and expand our party." 

Apart from politics, the summit discussed the development of Nyandarua as well as other economic challenges. 

Small groups linked with Kenya kwanza in Mount Kenya denounce their marginalization throughout the gathering.
