A few weeks ago, Gatundu Member of Parliament Hon Moses Kuria hinted at a new Party, Transformation National Alliance (TNA).
Taking to his social media platforms, Hon Kuria shared the logo of the new Party, which he intends to use as his political vehicle in 2022.
The Party’s officials have already kicked off the process of registering the party ahead of 2022. But will it be an easy process?
Well, registration of parties is a process, which involves a lot of correspondences between the office of registrar of political parties and the party on submission of requisite documents. However, the new TNA’s registration might be blocked.
Officials of the Transformation National Alliance (TNA) presented their documents to the Registrar of Political Parties Anne Nderitu, and distanced themselves from other parties.
Among the documents submitted to the registrar by the party’s interim officials Arnold Maliba (Secretary General) and Wachira Keen (chairperson) were its constitution, code of conduct and a logo.
Coincidentally, just like the defunct President Uhuru Kenyatta’s TNA that merged with 13 other parties, including Deputy President William Ruto-led United Republican Party, to form Jubilee Party, the new TNA party’s symbol is also a bird.
The defunct TNA’s symbol was a dove, while the new party’s symbol is an eagle. The new party’s colours are red and blue, while Uhuru’s TNA used red.
Couldn’t these similarities bar the process of registration? What are your thoughts?
