“We expect him to address a huge number of Kenyans here virtually on Friday, preparations are in top gear,” Mr. Kang’ata told Kenyan newspaper Sunday Nation.
Seattle office will be headed by Klaire Prestige, a Kenyan who owns a vernacular station in the State Dr. Ruto wants to recruit Diaspora Kenyans to UDA, get them to draft an economic blueprint to be put in his manifesto and fundraise for his campaigns.
