  • The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Electoral and Nomination Dispute Resolution Committee released rules and procedures that primaries losers will follow to file complaints.

    The Deputy President William Ruto led party also detailed the amount the complainants will pay for their disputes to be heard.

    In the document, UDA noted applicants will pay Ksh500,000 for disputes involving the presidential nominations while those challenging the gubernatorial nominations will part with Ksh200,000.

    Complaints on the senatorial ticket will be heard after the complainant pays Ksh100,000. National Assembly disputes will be settled after paying Ksh100,000 as well as the Woman Representative disputes.

    Members of the County Assembly disputes will be settled after paying Ksh20,000. 

    “There is hereby established committee referred to as the Dispute Resolution Committee whose mandate is to receive, hear and determine disputes resulting from internal party elections or nominations.

    “These rules and procedures aim to ensure the values of the party as set out in the Constitution are adhered to in the discharge of this mandate. Consequently, the purpose of these rules and procedures is to preserve the integrity and impartiality of the Committee and to provide guidance to the applicants,” the guidelines read in part.

    Largely, the UDA nominations exercise was seamless but in some parts of the country, the process was marred with chaos with aspirants disputing the whole process and the outcomes.

    Even before the party primaries started, a number of aspirants expressed fears that they would be rigged out. This was the case in Embu and Bomet counties.

    A lorry ferrying election material was on Wednesday,  April 13 ransacked and the ballot boxes and papers were burnt in Embu town.

    Aspirants drawn from the larger Embu county made counter-allegations over alleged rigging plans. In Bomet the exercise was marred by claims that some ballot papers were pre-marked.
