Those Responsible For Burning Ruto's UDA Nomination Papers To Be Disqualified

The United Democratic Alliance (UDA), led by Deputy President William Ruto, has issued a statement in response to an incident in which nomination ballots were confiscated and burned by angry youths in Embu County.

In Embu town, near a popular hotel, a lorry transporting election materials was ransacked on Wednesday, April 13 and the ballot boxes and papers were burned. Some candidates claimed that a senior politician in the region was planning to rig the primaries in favour of her allies.

The party had since informed the various aspirants who were to participate in the primaries scheduled for tomorrow that the process had gotten off to a shaky start after some ballot papers were burned on the way to the Mt Kenya region.

"The board has launched an investigation into the case of Embu, where some of the materials were burned this afternoon, and whoever is found to be responsible will be disqualified. The incident has been discussed by the party leadership with Hon Norman Nyagah, Hon Cicily Mbarire, and Hon John Muchiri "part of the statement that has been stated.
