This comes weeks after Deputy President William Ruto's allies vowed to fuel UDA as his 2022 vehicle.

Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi and his Keiyo South counterpart Daniel Rono on Monday said they will never set foot in Jubilee offices instead, they will channel their money to UDA, which they said Ruto will use to  vie for President in 2022

“If there is anyone still in Jubilee, then it should be President Kenyatta and Ruto. The rest of us left long ago and we are now in UDA,” Sudi said during a media briefing at his home in Eldoret.
