UDA to include welfare of persons with Disabilities in all its operations

The party will also come up with a model to accommodate PLWDs manual registration, for instance, braille registration process for the blind.

NAIROBI, Kenya Apr 21 – United Democratic Alliance (UDA) said Tuesday it will include the welfare of persons living with disabilities (PLWDs) in all its operations.

UDA Secretary General Veronica Maina said the party will create a registration portal from where PWDs will register their members and the same will reflect on party membership.

“We have agreed on a working formula, inclusion is our key word at UDA, we want person living with disability to feel comfortable at UDA because they are going to be part of the team that will drive the hustler philosophy agenda,” said Maina.

Maina said the portal will be user friendly to ensure they easily access the registration website and mechanism.

“We welcome all PWDs to register to as members of UDA because it will be difficult to discuss with them if they are not members,” she added.

The party will also come up with a model to accommodate PLWDs manual registration, for instance, braille registration process for the blind.

The party will involve lobby groups linked to PWDs for instance, ‘short stature group’ and ‘warembo na disability’.

Joseph Maina alias Sonko the group chair said the party was growing fast 
and they would not want to be left behind in its plans.

“We are looking for a place where we can get an umbrella and address 
issues of our members at the grassroots, the party has lot of plan for us,” said Maina

The SG said they will be under the UDA disability league.

“We will conduct mass registration of our members as we feel welcomed at UDA unlike other places where we have been locked out,” she added.

The group’s Secretary General Brigid Songok decried that members were either getting victimized or sacked from their jobs for supporting the Deputy President William Ruto, also noting that she had been a victim for opposing the BBI constitution review process.
