Nairobi, KENYA – A political party ‘associated’ with Deputy President William Ruto has changed its name and symbol.
In a gazette notice dated December 28, Party for Development and Reform (PDR) has changed its name to United Democratic Alliance (UDA).
The party symbol, formally that of a bull has now changed to a wheelbarrow.
According to Kahawa Tungu, the DP will most likely use this outfit to vie for the presidency come 2022.
The Kenyan media outlet also reports that the party is expected to have candidates vie for the Hellsgate and London Wards (Nakuru), Kitise/ Kithuku in Makueni, Huruma ward in Uasin Gishu and Kiamokama (Kisii), seats.
Africa Tembelea understands that the newly registered party will most likely also present candidates for the all-important Nairobi Governor by-election and that of Machakos senator.
