The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) has announced the measures it will take following Jubilee Party's declared intent to dissolve the coalition pact signed after the 2017 General Election.

In an official statement by UDA Secretary-General Veronica Maina, the newly revamped party officially declared a "dispute" on the matter.

"The relevant organs of the Coalition parties shall undertake the appropriate arbitration process in a bid to resolve the dispute and update you of the outcome thereof.

"Meantime, all parliamentarians holding office pursuant to the coalition agreement and in particular, the deputy majority leader Senator Fatuma Dullo should continue holding office until such a time as the disputes arbitration panel shall determine the fate of the coalition," the statement read in part.
