JAP warns TNA against using new emblems
06 February 2015, 12:07
Nyeri - Officials of Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP) have warned their colleagues in The National Alliance (TNA) against rebranding offices with JAP colours and logos.
Speaking during a press conference in Nyeri town, JAP Nyeri County chairman, Wambugu Nyamu complained that TNA was rebranding County TNA offices into JAP without consultations.
Wambugu said that JAP and TNA are two distinct political parties according to the law.
“We caution TNA chairman Thuo Mathenge against branding his party offices as Jubilee Alliance Party offices. TNA is a distinct party until 2017 when parliament will be dissolved,” said Wambugu.
He was discontented with the move by TNA to paint their buildings at Skuta Estate in Nyeri town with JAP colours.
A political showdown is looming between Mathenge and Wambugu who have both claimed publicly to be the JAP’s chairpersons.
Wambugu further condemned Mathenge for allegedly insulting and threatening an MP recently.
“We call upon all Nyeri County leaders to show sobriety and conduct themselves with dignity and decorum. Politics is not civil war and should be based on principles of fair competition,” stated Wambugu.
“The TNA party chairman should desist henceforth from his personal attacks and threats on elected leaders,” he added.
