Starehe MP Charles Jaguar lost his nomination to Simon Mbugua during UDA's primaries last week.
He has since announced that he will be challenging Simon Mbugua as an independent candidate in Starehe Constituency.
Jaguar questioned democracy saying Starehe people were not allowed to take part in the nominations.
"The people of Starehe were denied their democratic right to go to the ballot again for the nominations and choose their leader. The party decided to carry out opinion polls to decide whom to award the nomination certificate and it has been done. Could this be an outcome of certificates that started making rounds before nominations? Is democracy at stake here?"
UDA also claimed that MC Jessy had dropped his bid for the South Imenti MP seat and would support Mwiti Kathaara.
In a recent interview, Jessy dismissed the statement saying he didn't agree to step down. He is also pursuing the South Imenti seat as an independent candidate.
MC Jessy then urged young politicians not to trust everyone, adding that he regrets attending the meeting.
"Young people have a lot of work ahead of them, especially those of us who joined politics recently. Do not trust everyone with your political plans."
