A section of United Democratic Alliance (UDA) supporters in Homa Bay County have asked Deputy President William Ruto to intervene in solving wrangles surrounding the party leadership in the county.
At the centre of the wrangles is the dismissal of Everest Okambo as the county UDA party coordinator.
The party Secretary General Veronica Maina through a public notice dated September 30 removed Okambo as coordinator. In the dismissal letter, he was warned against undertaking any activities on behalf of the party in the county.
“This is to notify the general public and party supporters that Everest Okambo is no longer the UDA Homa Bay coordinator.
He is therefore not authorised to conduct any activity on behalf of UDA or to transact on behalf of the party,” the letter reads in part.
Okambo dismissed his ouster while maintaining they will not backtrack their support from DP Ruto.
He argued that their services were instrumental to the party while imploring the DP to intervene as fast as possible.
“It’s high time we UDA officials in Nyanza stopped retrogressive politics. We call upon DP Ruto to intervene quickly so his support doesn’t wane in Homa Bay,” Okambo said.
