UDA summons three members over burning of ballots in Embu


The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) has summoned three of its members over the chaos that happened outside the Izaak Walton Inn in Embu town.

The party on Wednesday directed Margaret Lorna Kariuki (Nominated Member of County Assembly), John Muchiri Nyaga (Manyatta MP) and Norman Nyaga (UDA politician) to appear before the party’s disciplinary committee for the allegations of wilful arson and destruction of poll materials.

In a statement, the party said there is evidence of video footage, information and material linking the three to the incident.

“The disciplinary committee hereby summons you to appear before it on Saturday, April 16 at 9:00 am for the hearing of the matter at the Hustlers Centre on Makindi Road off Riara Road in Nairobi,” the statement reads.

The three risk disqualification from the nominations and will face either suspension or expulsion from the party should the allegations be confirmed.

Kariuki, Muchiri and Nyaga can either appear in person or bring along a member of UDA or advocate of the High Court of Kenya to represent them.

The UDA primary nominations began on Thursday, April 14.

In the Embu chaos, a lorry ferrying nomination materials was ransacked on Wednesday, and the ballot boxes and papers were burnt.

Embu aspirants had earlier addressed the media dismissing allegations over reports of rigging plans.
