DP Ruto: I’m not a member of UDA
Deputy President William Ruto has said he is not a member of United Democratic Alliance (UDA).
Speaking in Kwale County when he attended the burial of the mother of Governor Salim Mvurya, Ruto said he was still the deputy party leader of Jubilee.
"I am still the deputy party leader of Jubilee, but together with over 150 MPs, we have decided to have one well where we can all drink water together," he said.
Ruto, who was responding to Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi who urged coast residents to form their own party, said UDA party was not his but was open to any politician regardless of their current parties.
"As we speak, Jumwa is an ODM member, Ichungwa is a Jubilee member but we have all decided to have one common party that will accommodate all of us," the DP said.
Ruto further urged Kingi to join UDA.
Kingi was ousted as Kilifi ODM chair last week after spearheading the formation of coastal political party.
