Is UDA Party Another Version Of URP Party? Popular Political Blogger Alleges The Following

The newly formed United Democratic Alliance party linked with Deputy President William Ruto has taken over the political scenery in Kenya. The party, whose members are ex-Jubilee party members, won the just concluded Kiambaa Constituency by-elections, beating their closest rival Jubilee party by an inch.

However, Donald Kipkorir, a popular political blogger has compared UDA with URP (United Republican Party), Ruto's owned political party in 2013. Taking to his official Twitter account, Donald said that between 2013 and 2018, URP now rebranded as UDA owned 50% of the government.

"For its slots of ministers, PSes, State Corporations CEOs and Ambassadors, URP didn’t appoint anyone from Mijikenda, Swahili, Luhya, Kisii, Somali, Turkana, Meru, Kamba or Masai Nations to any of these posts," he added.

He argued that UDA now claims to be re-purposed for 2022 elections but is still tribalistic. Do you agree with Donald's sentiments about UDA. Kindly share your thoughts.
