“Ukweli will provide a voice for Kenyans who have been forgotten for long. We want a Kenya that is corruption free and people are bold enough to take part in creating it,” the anti-graft crusader said during the launch.

The party’s secretary general is Nduko o’Matigere, a former manager at Twaweza East Africa with Mwangi as its chairman.

Ukweli will field aspirants in all fields in the polls except for the presidency with its deadline for receiving nomination applications for members who qualify for the positions set at March 30.
