Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago now wants verification of documents of United Democratic Alliance (UDA) aspirants to be done at party offices in grassroots.
This he said, will help to avoid congestion at the national offices in Nairobi.
The Governor was speaking during the Bottom Up Consultative meeting Uasin Gishu Chapter in Eldoret.
While responding to Governor’s concerns, UDA National Election Board Chair Eng. Anthony Mwaura said the party will work to ensure services are done at branch offices.
The board took the aspirants through the preparations for nominations assuring them of free, fair, and verifiable party primaries.
The governor also called on the UDA steering team to put in place mechanisms that will ensure every region’s needs are captured in their manifesto to uplift the economy of every region under the bottom-up model.
He also recommended for every sub-county meeting and coming up with a document that will be incorporated into the National Manifesto of UDA.
“In absence of proper proposals and documentation, we risk being bypassed by the process therefore, the only way to implement these is to have all UDA aspirants elected in various elective seats,” Mandago said.
UDA is currently verifying documents for all its aspirants for various seats in Nairobi ahead of the party primaries.
Already, the party’s election board has set between April 9 and 16th as dates for the primaries across all counties.
Aspirants are required to submit their papers by the end of this month.
Mandago will be vying for the Senate seat.
