Kenya: Laikipia TNA Officials Want Secretariat's Respect

TNA officials in Laikipia have demanded respect from the party's secretariat claiming they are not being recognized during public rallies.

Officials led by deputy chairman Christopher Maitho said the party's security team harassed them during the Nakuru rally last weekend where Uhuru Kenya and William Ruto signed a coalition pact.

Speaking yesterday after a meeting of the party's executive committee in Nanyuki town, Maitho said during the rally, there was no provision made to recognize grass root party officials.

"Officials should be respected because we were elected by party members. We are the backbone of the party's campaign at the grass root level and our input cannot be ignored," he said. They however praised the TNA-URP-UDF coalition deal.
