Malala Warns UDA Leaders: Quit Politicking or Resign.

Cleophas Malala, Secretary General of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA), has issued a stern warning to party members, including high-profile leaders, demanding they respect party leadership or face disciplinary actions.


Malala’s Warning

Upon returning from China with a UDA delegation, Malala expressed concern over a growing pattern of indiscipline within the party, which he claims has even been directed at President William Ruto. He specifically cited public remarks made by Githunguri MP Gathoni Wa Muchomba, Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi, and Nyeri Governor Mutahi Kahiga.

“Your recent conduct not only undermines the party’s unity but also disrespects the leadership that you pledged to serve,” Malala stated.

He warned that if this behavior continues, the party will take disciplinary action.


Cabinet Secretaries Involved

Malala also criticized Public Service Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria and Roads and Transport Cabinet Secretary Kipchumba Murkomen for engaging in political activities, which he said is against the law requiring them to remain apolitical.

“CS Kuria, you must operate within your constitutional mandate. If you wish to engage in politics, you are welcome to resign,” Malala asserted.

Similarly, he urged CS Murkomen to focus on repairing roads damaged by recent floods or resign to join the political arena.


Deputy President Gachagua’s Response

This warning follows rumors of a rift between Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and President Ruto. In Uasin Gishu County, Gachagua addressed these speculations, emphasizing that he would not allow certain allies to damage his relationship with Ruto.

He also warned Rift Valley leaders to stay out of Central region politics, highlighting the importance of mutual respect.


Oscar Sudi’s Response

In response, MP Sudi emphasized the need to avoid divisive and tribal politics. He expressed defiance towards Gachagua’s warnings, stating that his political movements cannot be controlled. Sudi pledged to continue holding Harambees to fundraise for churches, a tradition he inherited from Ruto.

“You cannot control where I go. I will continue my activities across the country,” Sudi declared.
