UDA stalwart Caleb Kositany has urged the residents of Nandi Hills not to re-elect their MP Alfred Keter, saying he was a Kipsigis and that the seat should only go to a Nandi.
MP Kositany was speaking over the weekend in Uasin Gishu at a meeting with elders days after he lost the nominations and hours following the nullification of the nomination of Alfred Keter in Nandi Hills.
Speaking to Kass FM on Monday morning, MP Keter announced he will be defending his seat on an Independent ticket while pledging his unwavering support to DP William Ruto and the Kenya Kwanza Alliance.
”I accepted the decision of the party even though I believe that I was victimized without any justifiable reason whatsoever. I was welcomed to the UDA by Secretary-General Veronica Maina and one of the founders of the party, Hon Rigathi Gachagua. I was registered, paid the nomination fees, and given a go-ahead to contest for the Nandi Hills MP UDA ticket. I say, thank you.
After wide consultations with my family members, legal team and supporters, I have decided to run for MP, Nandi Hills constituency on an INDEPENDENT ticket. That notwithstanding, I wish to pledge my loyalty to the Deputy President William Ruto. I will passionately campaign and support his presidential bid. I will also align my agenda with that of UDA and Kenya Kwanza coalition as a whole, that is “Kazi ni kazi, BOTTOM-UP, Pesa mfukoni”, the MP wrote on his socials.
