Jubilee to lock out rebel governors in 2017

19 February 2015, 14:25 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - All Jubilee allied governors perceived to be undermining government projects under the shadow of the Council of Governors have been warned that they risk being locked out of the new JAP party in 2017.

JAP’s national chairman, Nelson Dzuya said that the party will be strict and will not allow governors who are frustrating the Jubilee manifesto to be part of them in 2017.

Speaking Thursday when he met newly elected JAP officials in Nakuru County, Dzuya said that JAP will only work with people who are supporting President Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto to fulfill the promises they made to Kenyans during the 2013 campaign.

“The Council of Governors is misleading some governors into opposing government projects but we want to tell all governors who were elected on the TNA and URP tickets that 2017 will be tough for them if they continue frustrating the government. Let them not think that they will be given nominations by JAP if they can’t speak the JAP language. Our aim as JAP is to help the UhuRuto team deliver all the promises they made to Kenyans so that we can give them a formidable platform to seek for a second term in 2017,” he said.

Party vice chairman, David Murathe said that all Jubilee allied governors must toe the line and fully support government development projects if they want to be safe politically.

“2017 will be hot and the nominations will be hot as compared to 2013 and therefore the only way to be safe is by backing the government of the day fully,” he cautioned.
