This comes barely two days after Mwangi announced through social media that he was taking a break from Kenyan politics.

Last week, Mwangi accused the leadership of the newly launched United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party of stealing his political outfits’ brand colours. Yellow and green colours are conspicuous with both the Ukweli and UDA parties.

UDA party, which is associated with Deputy President William Ruto, was unveiled in January this year having rebranded from the Party of Development and Reform (PDR).

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Mwangi claimed that DP Ruto was behind the ‘theft’.

Mwangi demanded an explanation from the Registrar of Political Parties Anne Nderitu on the alleged theft of Ukweli party brand colours further threatening legal action.

“Deputy President William Samoei Ruto stole Ukweli Party colours for his party. He could have picked any other colours but decided to steal Ukweli Party brand book,” said Mwangi.

“…Registrar of Political Parties owe us a legal explanation and we shall meet in court!”

Interestingly, the yellow colour in question dominated the DP’s defunct United Republican Party (URP).
