Nakuru - The Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP) will launch a nationwide members' registration drive soon after the Kajiado Central by-election, party chairman Nelson Dzuya has said.
Speaking Friday in Nakuru when he addressed interim grassroots officials of the party, Dzuya said that they will launch what he termed as a massive registration campaign after ‘winning’ the Kajiado Central seat.
He said that they are targeting over 20 million registered voters to register as JAP members across the country.
“JAP has its programmes rolling and registration of party members will begin soon after we win the Kajiado Central seat because that is where our energy is concentrated at the moment. We will target as many youths as possible and aim at registering over 20 million party members,” he said.
Dzuya said that their intention is to make JAP not only a national party and movement but also the biggest political movement in the East and Central African region.

“In the next one year JAP will be the big political thing on the African continent because our focus is beyond Kenya,” he said.
Nakuru JAP chairman, Joseph Karimi said that they will register members from all colleges and universities with the aim of making a formidable youth wing for the party.
“The youth movement of JAP will be the main pillar for the party and we will focus at establishing a strong youth wing similar to the one of the ANC party in South Africa,” said Karimi.
JAP national officials were on a two days visit to Nakuru County to meet county and grassroots officials of the new political outfit.
