5 parties in Kenya Kwanza administration merge with UDA


In a major political development in Kenya, five parties within the Kenya Kwanza administration have heeded the call of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Secretary-General Cleophas Malala to dissolve their parties and join UDA.

The parties that have agreed to merge with UDA include Umoja na Maendeleo, Farmers party, Chama cha Mashinani, National Agenda party, and Economic Freedom party.

UDA has been calling on parties within the Kenya Kwanza administration to unite and present a common front for the 2027 General Election.

In October 2022, Trade Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria’s Chama cha Kazi had already joined UDA ahead of his appointment to the position.

The UDA Secretary-General has reiterated his call for senior government officials who are still clinging to their parties to dissolve their political outfits and join a united front in government.

However, the Amani National Congress (ANC) party has maintained its stance of running an independent party and plans to conduct grassroots registration of its members.

In the midst of the merger talks, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has assured the Kenya Kwanza affiliate parties that they would not be coerced to fold and join UDA.

He has emphasized that the merger would take place voluntarily, without any pressure on the parties involved.
