Jubilee to release Kajiado Central postmortem

19 March 2015, 14:12 William Korir

Nairobi - Mistakes were made in the Kajiado Central by election, the Jubilee Alliance Party JAP has admitted.

The party lost the recent poll to the Orange Democratic Party ODM after their candidate Patrick Tutui could not overhaul ODM's Elijah Memusi Kanchori.

The election was meant to install JAP as the new kid on the block with a bang but in the end proved to be a disappointing outing for the new party.

Many have already come out to lambast the way the elections were handled by JAP in a region where the party has overwhelming support.

And party chiefs have already started looking back at what were disastrous polls for the new outfit.

Kigumo MP Jamleck Kamau, who was a major part of the campaign team for Kajiado Central admits that there were some mistakes made and that a report would be released soon detailing what exactly went on.

" It was disappointing to lose. No one wants to lose and I do not think that we did as well as we could," he said.

" There were things that could be improved on and we will release a report on them before the end of the week," he added.

Kamau did not want to speak on alleged disunity within the party, saying that some things are best left to senior party officials to comment on.

His counterpart Charles Keter, who was also active in the campaigns admitted that the loss was a body blow to the new party.

" It is a blow. We had the election within our grasp and no one is happy with a loss but we will come back better next time.

" Whether ours was an unpopular candidate as some say is up for debate. He did lose by only 500 votes so that is a theory that can be easily disputed," he added.

Tutui has yet to comment on his loss but is understood to be speaking to his advisers on what step to take in regards to the manner in which he lost the poll.

" It is not clear if there will be an appeal, even though it is highly unlikely seeing as it was very close and the party did not complain of irregularities during the election day," an aide close to Tutui that did not want to be named told News24.
