Malala asks Speaker Wetangula to join UDA

UDA Party Secretary General Cleophas Malala

UDA Party Secretary-General Cleophas Malala has urged Ford-Kenya Leader Moses Wetangula to dissolve party and join the ruling coalition.

Speaking in Kakamega County, Malala urged Speaker Wetangula, who is Ford-Kenya’s leader to disband the party and the Democratic Action Party of Kenya (DAP-K) to support President William Ruto’s agenda and ensure the Luhya community’s significant stake in the government.

Malala’s sentiments come after Prime Cabinet Secretary and also Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi disclosed that his party will fold and join UDA.

Speaking during the meeting, ANC party leader Issa Timamy said the merger has been long overdue, adding that the two parties not only share visions but also aspirations that will move the country forward.

“I have no doubt in my mind that this idea is one whose time has come. In politics and governance, the overriding objective of participating in politics as politicians and political parties is to win and form government. This is what the proposed merger of our parties aims to achieve,” said Timamy.

On his part, Mudavadi argued that it would be impractical for ANC to field a Presidential candidate to compete against President William Ruto in 2027, saying the party stands to gain more by working with the UDA.
