United Democratic Alliance [UDA] aspirants for the 2022 general election have been challenged to engage themselves in the party’s massive recruitment drive and shun short-term ambitions.
Party National chairman Johnston Muthama said at the moment the party is focusing on a massive membership recruitment drive.
He urged the aspirants to put the party’s recruitment drive first before their personal political ambitions.
“The party grassroots elections will be conducted after the end of the party recruitment drive,” he pointed out.
Muthama said the grassroots elections will be carried out at every polling station to empower party leadership at the grassroots level
He said this when he was making his opening remarks during a forum for party aspirants drawn from the coast region held at the posh Terrace Villas Resorts boutique hotel in Nyali constituency, Mombasa county before it was disrupted by police.
The UDA National chairman assured the forum that the party won’t recognize imposed leaders who are not elected at the grassroots level.
Muthama said the grassroots election will mark the end of those who imposed themselves as UDA leaders countrywide.
He said at the moment there are no party officials and that is why they are engaging in a massive member recruitment drive before the grassroots elections.
“Let me assure you that no party member will be imposed on members as party leader apart from those who will be elected during the UDA grassroots elections,” he pointed out.
