JAP defeat caused by division among affiliated parties
18 March 2015, 21:52
Nyeri - Gichugu MP, Njogu Barua has attributed the Jubilee Alliance Party defeat in Kajiado central to some undisclosed elements allegedly sympathetic to the CORD leadership.
Barua said the same elements are to blame for the loss of Mathare seat.
He alleged that the said elements were paid by CORD to frustrate JAP's efforts to give the seat to the Jubilee candidate, Patrick Tutui.
“It is no longer a secret that we have some guns for hire within the Jubilee Alliance who are being used to undermine the efforts to have all the affiliate parties join JAP in readiness for the 2017 general elections,” he said.

He wondered how President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto would make several rallies yet end up losing the seat, blaming opposition within Jubilee.
“There are some people locking our boat from inside and this has to come to an end now,” said Barua.
"We have learnt our lesson. Some people mislead the President and the party by rejecting the popular candidate who has now won on ODM ticket,” Barua added.
He said JAP will use the defeat to strengthen the Party primaries in the grassroots and avoid a repeat of the same in future.
He made the remarks at Mburi Primary School in his Gichugu constituency after inspecting some five classrooms built using the CDF.
