Malala summons Nairobi UDA MCAs amid party leadership wrangles

The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party Secretary General Cleophas Malala has reversed changes that were effected by a section of UDA leadership at the Nairobi County Assembly.

Instead, the SG convened a meeting on Thursday for all the elected UDA MCAs in Nairobi to deliberate on the purported changes and establish the bone of contention.

In a letter addressed to the county assembly speaker, MCAs seeking to remove Minority leader Antony Kiragu and Minority Whip Mark Mugambi have proposed Waithera Chege as their minority leader and Joyce Muthoni as minority whip.

SG Malala said the status quo will remain until Thursday's meeting, adding that the party will remain neutral amid calls to change the party leadership in the house.

“We shall meet at 10 a.m. to establish who is in support of this motion and who is not. As a secretariat we will be fair; if the signatures are presented to support the bid, even if the leaders involved are my friends, I will not hesitate to let them go,” Malala said on Monday.

“I will go with the majority’s decision… as for the issue of the minority leader, we shall still follow the law which says the speaker must first communicate. That has not happened yet and until then, the people in question maintain their positions.”

However, the embattled MCAs claim there are 'external forces' trying to flex muscles on the UDA leadership affairs within the county.

Malala urged the MCAs to remain calm and united devoid of division to enable the county government led by Governor Johnson Sakaja to deliver seamlessly.
