Kenya's political temperatures are beginning to rise ahead of the 2022 August general election. Currently political aspirants are moving around the country selling their manifestos despite the official launching of campaigns.
The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) has formally written to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in response to State sponsored violence in the run-up to the August elections.
The UDA expressed concerns about recent deeply worrying security incidents in a letter addressed to president Uhuru kenyatta and copied to the ICC prosecutor.
According to United Democratic Alliance secretary-general Veronica Maina, "the incidents are sustained by the States inaction and condiment."
Maina said this in reference to the Jacaranda debacle. Deputy President William Ruto's Jacaranda rally was met with hooliganism over the weekend after rowdy youths pelted Stones at the rally disrupting his meeting.
According to Citizen television today, the Deputy President's UDA party has written to the president seeking answers and assurance over security concerns during political rallies in the country.
