Loise Kim, a Kikuyu gospel singer, did not slam the door shut when she left the United Democratic Alliance’s headquarters (UDA). The singer behind the hits “Queen” and “Muciari” left UDA after losing to former Inooro FM presenter Anne Muratha in the UDA Kiambu Woman Representative primary. Muratha, who also works as a marriage counsellor, received 83,257 votes, while Loise received 67,644 votes, a margin of less than 16,000 votes.
Unlike other aspirants who have become enraged after losing primaries, Loise remained composed and did not disparage the party’s leader, Deputy President William Ruto. “Asante for the opportunity,” the well-known artist told Ruto, thanking the UDA as a whole as well as all of its organs. Although Loise did not directly accuse the UDA Election Board, she seemed to blame it when she mocked it for mismanaging the election.
“We may not have won the seat according to the party’s elections board, but we certainly won the hearts and minds of many people, young and old. That was only the start. Kiambu must be redeemed from tyrants and progress’s foes “she informed her backers. She will run as an independent candidate, and she will be up against Muratha, Mercy Nungari of Kameme FM, and Gladys Chania, among others.
