JAP will turn you into political slaves - MP tells URP

02 March 2015, 12:53 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Kuresoi south Member of Parliament, Zakayo Cheruiyot has warned politicians in Rift valley that they risk being political slaves to their counterparts from central region if they join the Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP).

Speaking during a church service Sunday at the Kuresoi south AIC church, Cheruiyot said that JAP is a brainchild of The National Alliance party (TNA), which wants to swallow URP and control them politically.

Cheruiyot said it will be wrong for the Rift valley region to sell their political identity to the central region in the name of political unity.

“As a region, we must have our own political identity instead of allowing individuals who have their own selfish interests to take us hostage because we will end up regretting. Why are they hurrying the process of dissolving URP and TNA as if the world is ending tomorrow?” posed Cheruiyot.

He added, “I want to warn those people in Rift valley who are being fooled into this agreement that we are being fixed and if we are not carefully we will be shortchanged in 2022.”

Cheruiyot said that if Central Kenya politicians are so much interested in joining one party, then they can as well join URP and dissolve TNA.

“If the issue is about a single party, then let TNA come and join us in URP. Why are they forcing us into a house they have constructed on their own?” he wondered.

He called on deputy president, William Ruto to listen to his people on the ground saying that most of them are opposed to the idea of joining JAP.
