Kiraitu not keen on new Jubilee Alliance

23 January 2015, 15:04 William Korir

Nairobi - Meru Senator Kiraitu Murungi says he is not keen on the new Jubilee Alliance party, says it will not represent the interests of his people.

The Alliance is keen on ensuring that members of the Jubilee coalition all join up and form one formidable force for the 2017 General elections.

Kiraitu though, says that he and members of the Alliance Party of Kenya are not keen on the new arrangement.

" At the moment, we are not for the new alliance. Our party has its own interests and has its own direction and we feel that if we join the new alliance, it will swallow us all into it, which is not a good idea," he said on phone from Naivasha where he is attending the Jubilee alliance forum.

He however admitted that he will listen in on the forum and then retreat to his party to seek the way forward.

" We have come here to put our heads together. We will see," he added.

The new Alliance is mooted to be a major driving force to ensure the current government remains in power until after the presidency of Uhuru Kenyatta ends in 2022.

It is understood that Deputy President William Ruto will run for the presidency under the JAP alliance for the 2022 elections.

Kiraitu is happy to be in the ruling coalition buts says that he does not want the identity of small parties to disappear.

" We need small parties because they ensure that the political space is vibrant. One big party has its own pitfalls," he added.

The Jubilee alliance will spend the weekend deliberating on the matter of the new party.
