Bomet governor Dr Hillary Barchok on Wednesday received hundreds of former CCM grassroots party officials drawn from across the county who have made the wise choice of defecting to UDA
He said the United Democratic Alliance, powered by the Hustler Nation philosophy and the BOTTOM-UP economic model as engineered by DP William Ruto, is the party of choice as the people of Bomet.
“Political parties play a significant role in shaping representation of the people both nationally and in the counties, and offers them a platform to exercise their democratic rights as enshrined in the constitution. As a people, we would wish to join the rest of the country as it rallies behind this wonderful political vehicle that seeks to address the plight of the hustlers once it takes over in 2022,” said the Bomet second term Jubilee party governor.
He says upon their defection, they have expressed their wish to be registered as members of UDA and he has made arrangements to have them enlisted in the party’s national register.
UDA is a party that is linked to the deputy president William Samoei Ruto who has declared his interest for the presidency come 2022.
