Jubilee licks its wounds after Kajiado failure

17 March 2015, 18:37 Victor Tinto in Kajiado Central

Nairobi - While their Orange counterparts celebrate, the Jubilee Alliance Party JAP have been left licking their wounds after a disappointing result  in the Kajiado Central by elections.

The small loss to the Orange Democratic Movement ODM in the poll will come as absolutely no consolation to the party and especially the fact that it had been deemed the inception of the newly former JAP.

Added to the fact that the winner,  Elijah Memusi Kanchori was a former Jubilee candidate and only decamped to ODM at the last minute will be even more painful to JAP.

The by election was also deemed as a personal battle between president Uhuru Kenyatta and CORD leader Raila Odinga and the loss will thus be a big hit to the party.

Losing to the opposition and especially with all the government machinery on show during the campaigns will disappoint the Jubilee hierarchy.

" They will be hurting badly after the loss. It was a series of blunders from JAP," Narok based political sciences lecturer Unai Ntororo told News24.

" It all started in the primaries and their calculation as to who was the better candidate. They should have known that Memusi was the more popular one."

" Then the campaigns were not well handled. CORD leaders were all there and Raila spent over 10 days in total in Kajiado Central. They wanted it more and even the voters felt it.

" The support Memusi received from Orange House was nothing short of phenomenal and they deserved the win," he added.

JAP MPs admit that there were problems with the elections but insist that the party, which has been received with mixed reviews will eventually come good.

" The party will be fine. There is time needed for it to gain in popularity. That will not be an issue because the plan is 2017, an MP attached to JAP that did not want to be named said.

For Memusi though, the party is a waste of time.

" The people have proved that JAP is a still born baby with this election," he said.
