Newly appointed United Democratic Alliance Cleophas Malala on Thursday met secretary generals of Kenya Kwanza allied parties.
The meeting comes amidst speculations that the President William Ruto-led outfit could merge all parties under Kenya Kwanza.
Malala, while disclosing details of the meeting said the three are determined to see to it that Ruto's plan for Kenya is achieved.
"Having a Consultative meeting with SGs of Kenya Kwanza founding parties Ford Kenya and ANC party; Chris Wamalwa and Gikuru Simon. We are committed to helping president William Ruto achieve his development agenda," Malala said.
The former Kakamega senator seems to have set the ground rolling over the plan, barely a week after he was named the UDA secretary general, replacing nominated Senator, Veronica Maina.
UDA is Kenya Kwanza's biggest party.
He previously belonged to the ANC party, which he used to vie for the Kakamega gubernatorial seat but lost to Fernandes Barasa of ODM.
Before the meeting, Malala had on Monday affirmed that the party will push for a merger of affiliates ahead of the 2027 political showdown with Azimio.
“We shall not go into 2027 before we organise ourselves better and this is a sign that President Ruto plans his politics under one colour,” Malala said at his unveiling ceremony at the Hustler Centre.
He hinted that his immediate assignment would be to spearhead discussions with the affiliate parties in Kenya Kwanza to realise the merger dream.
“One of my mandates is to begin a dialogue with our partners to ensure that we have one party against our opponents,” Malala revealed.
“We can not have one government and several colours, that is our position and we shall talk to others.”
