UDF set to re-brand ahead of 2017 elections

05 October 2014, 18:41 David Wekesa

Vihiga - The United Democratic Forum (UDF) party is set to change its name ahead of the 2017 General Elections.

The party leader Musalia Mudavadi said the move was aimed at  giving the party a national outlook.

Speaking at Mudavadi Girls School in Vihiga County on Saturday Mudavadi said plans were in the final stages to re-brand the party to Amani National Congress (ANC).

He said the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) had already ratified the decision and the party officials had already communicated with the registrar of political parties over the same .

He  at the same time decried that some outside forces were using some officials in the party to bring down party using unnecessary wrangles.

“You should not be threatened by what you read in a section of the media being propagated  by some moles in our party over leadership," he said.

He insisted that the party was very strong and allayed fears  from quotas that the party was on the verge of collapse.

“How can you say a party with 89 Members of County Assembly (MCAs), 12 MPs, 3 Senators and 1 Governor is dead?” he posed.

He called upon the residents to register in large numbers during the ongoing voter registration.

He insisted that he will vie for the 2017 Presidential race and called on the Luhya Community to believe in him and push the agenda together.

“Several presidential candidates have vied for this seat several times, for me it’s only once and I have more chances to try this and the right period is 2017 and am going to it again and am urging you to come and walk with me," he said.
