  • A musician and fierce supporter of Deputy President, William Ruto, has gifted the second in command a parcel of land.

    Speaking to a local publication on Wednesday, November 3, the musician identified as Zakari Daudi from Bungoma County, offered the parcel to the DP with the aim of putting up regional offices of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party.

    He further noted that he hoped that Ruto would put up a foundation for the building during his upcoming tour of the Western Region.

    "I have donated my piece to DP Ruto so that he can construct UDA offices and headquarters. I hope that when he visits Webuye, he will lay the foundation stone for the construction of the party's headquarters.

    "Having an office here will allow many people to join the party. I, therefore want to urge Bungoma residents to come out to register as members of the party as we wait to welcome our next president who will be visiting the Western region on Thursday," he stated, according to People Daily.

    United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party officials are yet to respond on whether they have received the gift and what they intend to do with it.

    The exchange comes years after the musician received a brand new car from the DP in 2016.

    The then 35-year-old received the gift after performing a song for the second in command during his then tour of the Western region.

    Daudi, at the time, expressed that he had never dreamt of owning a car of his own up until he received the gift.

    “I am thankful to the Deputy President for what he has done for me. May the Lord bless him and give him the heart to help more disabled people who have talent,” Daudi stated.

    The 35-year-old artist is locally known for his hits songs My Dear and Tindikiti, which he normally performs at funerals, school functions and other ceremonies.

    Zakari received the car from Webuye West Member of Parliament, Dan Wanyama, at Masinde Muliro Gardens, where he promised to use the car during his music concerts. The MP told residents that he had been given the vehicle by DP Ruto in Nairobi.
