From Azimio to UDA: Ex Bungoma Governor Wangamati and Western Kenya's Changing Political Alliances

In a strategic move to fortify the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Party’s presence in the Western region of Kenya, a high-profile delegation of leaders from the Mulembe Nation recently convened at Statehouse Nairobi for a crucial meeting with UDA’s Secretary General, Senator Cleophas Malalah, and the party’s leader, President William Samoei Ruto.

At the heart of this gathering was the concerted effort to bolster grassroots support for the UDA Party, a political entity that has been making waves on the Kenyan political landscape. The meeting marked a turning point with the defection of prominent members from the Azimio la Umoja coalition into the UDA fold. Notable among these defectors were former Bungoma Governor Hon. Wycliffe Wangamati, Ambassador Ken Vitisia of Vihiga, and Hon. Isaac Andabwa representing Lugari.

The significance of these defections cannot be overstated, as it underscores the growing appeal of the UDA Party in the Western region, traditionally a stronghold for other political formations. The move also signals a realignment of political forces ahead of the upcoming elections, setting the stage for a fiercely contested battle for political dominance.

Other distinguished leaders, including Hon. Mary Emase of Teso South, Hon. Mwambu Mabonga of Bumula, and Hon. Seth Panyako of Malava, all voiced their commitment to the UDA’s vision. The presence of Hon. David Wamatsi (Mumias East), Hon. Waiswa Stanley (Navakholo), Eng Butichi (Ikolomani), and Hon. Habil Nanjendo ‘Korokoro’ (Butere) further solidified the party’s standing in the Western region.

As the UDA Party continues to gather momentum in the Western region, the upcoming political landscape in Kenya promises to be dynamic and fiercely competitive. The meeting at Statehouse Nairobi served as a clear signal of intent from the party’s leadership and its growing base of supporters, setting the stage for what will undoubtedly be a closely watched political contest in the region.
