United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Party Secretary General Cleophas Malala has launched a competition whose end product will be the ruling party's anthem.

In a post on social media on Sunday, September 17, Malala invited choirs and individual composers to participate in the contest that will see the winner walk home with Ksh3 million in cash prize.

Interested candidates from Nairobi, Central, Coast, Eastern, Nyanza, Western, Rift Valley and North Eastern are eligible to register for free.

"Register for free to compete and stand a chance to win Ksh.3 million in the UDA Party search for the official Party anthem. Open for choirs and individual compositions across the Country," Malala said.

The competition comes at a time when the UDA leadership is keen to solidify its support across the country.

Malala has been leading grassroots mobilization and registration drives since assuming the role of secretary general in February this year.

The UDA party is also gearing up for the nationwide party elections scheduled for December, an exercise meant to make the party more vibrant.

Speaking during the opening of the party offices at King'ong'o Estate in Nyeri recently, President William Ruto, who is the leader of the ruling party, affirmed that the elections will entrench democracy and eradicate tribal ethnicity in the country.

"This is the party that runs the government and that is why I'm announcing here in Nyeri to all members across the country that the elections will be held in December. We will announce the timetable for the elections. We want to eradicate tribalism and ethnicity from the party and make this a national party that reflects leaders from all tribes in Kenya. We want to unite the country," Ruto averred.
