Why UDA is a party borne out of spite rather than ideology
Wheelbarrow as a party symbol is borne out of spite. Let’s find the origin of the symbol here:
One, wheelbarrow was chosen by Tangatanga as a self-deprecating joke taken too far, when Deputy President William Ruto was handing out handouts to a group of youth from Central region.
At the time a video appeared of him riding on a wheelbarrow like a kid in a candy store.
This was after Ruto skipped President Uhuru Kenyatta's meeting on Covid-19.
The skipping of the meeting was a spite to his senior, Uhuru, the same way they labeled themselves Tangatanga after a snide remark by Uhuru on early campaigns.
They took Tangatanga as a brand.
In short, United Democratic Alliance (UDA) is a party borne out of spite rather than ideology, everything else including the bottom-up hullabaloo is hocus pocus and clear circumlocution of issues.
