High Court has threw away a case by President William Ruto's led United Democratic Alliance party wanting to be given more money while questioning the formula that was used by the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties, ORPP to allocate the now largest party in the country.

The UDA party had argued that the registrar of political parties had made a mistake in its decision to allocate it Ksh577,162,898 for the financial year 2022 to 2023 less Ksh 115 million having acquired more elective positions in the August polls.

The party had taken their griviances to the ORPP who dismissed the initial case while arguing that they had used the correct formula to calculate each of the political party's allocations.

UDA then not satisfied with the response by the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties took the matter to the High Court. The High Court has now dismissed the Ruto led UDA party case with cost.

"The High Court has dismissed with costs an appeal by the UDA party challenging the formula used by the ORPP to distribute political parties funds to political parties. Early this year, the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal dismissed the initial case saying the formula legit." ODM Director of Communication Philip Etale said.
