Kiharu MP, Ndindi Nyoro, alleged that the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) was having behind-the-scenes meetings with top government officials, including Cabinet Secretaries and Chief Administrative Secretaries and Principal Secretaries.
During an interview at Kass FM on Wednesday, January 12, the MP claimed that they were meeting a majority of civil servants at night as they were afraid of the repercussions of associating with the DP or his allies during the day.
"We are engaging them at night because they are afraid and our line is always open at night. In February 2022, UDA's support base will be vividly seen. No one wants to be left behind. We are still receiving defectors," he noted.
Nyoro added that most government officers would make their stand known after receiving their February 2022 salaries.
"Our president and the government will be shocked. The migration will be similar to that of the wildebeests. Many people have been frustrated by this government. Some are CSs, CASs, PSs, and others occupy top positions in government. Actually, the majority are from Mt Kenya.
"Some are just waiting for their last salaries to show Uhuru that there's an end to all the humiliation that they have gone through. Towards the end of February, all these MPs you see with Raila (ODM leader Raila Odinga) will cross over," he noted.
Nyoro assured aspirants who want to vie on a UDA ticket that the nominations would be free and fair regardless of how closer to Ruto any competitor is.
He noted that Devolution CS Charles Keter, who endorsed Ruto's candidature on Monday, January 10, will compete for the party ticket with other aspirants (in the Kericho Gubernatorial seat) and will not be favoured.
"A party grows when people join and politics is all about the numbers. We met as a party and decided that everyone who joins us should feel like they have a place in UDA.
"We will not turn away anyone who wants to join the party," Nyoro assured.
The Kiharu MP further criticised President Uhuru over his alliance with Raila, lamenting that he sidelined Ruto who campaigned with him in 2013 and 2017.
