Begging for funds is the new order of the day at the National Unity Platform- NUP as today the freshest party on the block officially launched a nationwide fundraising drive for its electoral activities.

The drive code-named “MUDA KU MUDA @10K WE CAN” is aimed at raising funds amounting to 1.7 trillion shillings in form of financial support ahead of the 2021 general elections.

According to the NUP, every party member or well-wisher who supports them withas little as 10000 shillings upwards as a show of goodwill gets a reward of a prestigious certificate from the party.

Nup says the badly needed funds will help finance its activities from this drive.
