UDA MCAs accuse Sakaja of favouring Azimio

Members of the County Assembly affiliated with the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) in Nairobi have henceforth vowed to henceforth boycott plenary sittings in protest over governor Johnson Sakaja’s recent appointments.

The MCA’s in a heated press briefing accused the governor of favouring the Azimio la Umoja side in his recent appointments.

“We want the governor to decide whether he will work with the Azimio side or UDA that sponsored him,” said Minority Leader Antony Kiragu.

They specifically took issue with the recent list of Chief Officers brought forward for vetting.

This comes a day after the UDA members in the ICT committee walked out of the vetting session during the vetting of Lucky Okudo.

“Lucky Okudo is the person who was seen at the Bomas of Kenya snatching people’s phones. What we are telling Governor Sakaja is that what you’re doing is not okay. We as a party feel disgruntled and the people who went out of their way to fight for this party are not happy. We will no longer take it down.”

“We want to tell the people of Nairobi that we have pulled our members from the sittings and let him pass the names of the Chief Officers with the Azimio and we are telling the people that he is working with the people who did not elect him.”

Speaking at the same event, UDA Minority Whip Mark Mugambi said Ms Okudo submitted her papers a day after the deadline for applications

“She brought her papers on December 21st, which were submitted through the mail,” Mr Mugambi said.
