The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Party has endorsed Deputy President William Ruto for President.

At least 4,350 UDA delegates on Tuesday, March 15 unanimously endorsed Ruto’s candidature in the August 9 presidential election.

The NDC was held at the Moi International Sports Complex, Kasarani.

After being crowned the party’s flagbearer in the upcoming polls, Ruto is expected to embark on a search for his running mate and to forge coalition with other like-minded parties.

Safina Party presidential aspirant Jimi Wanjigi, formerly of ODM, and Chama Cha Kazi’s Moses Kuria attended the NDC at Kasarani Stadium.
