Luhya leaders vow to support Jubilee

18 July 2015, 19:12 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - A section of political leaders from Western Kenya have vowed to support President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto in their fight against terrorism and graft.

Former Forestry and Wildlife Minister, Dr. Noah Wekesa has said that the Luhya community is warming up to fully support Kenyatta and Ruto in the next general elections.

He disclosed that he chaired a 13-member meeting of Luhya elders where they decided to not only support Uhuruto in fighting terrorism and corruption, but also in recapturing the Presidency in 2017.

Wekesa made the remarks during a requiem mass for 11 victims of the recent Mandera massacre at Chaka grounds in Kieni Constituency, Nyeri County.

He was echoed by former Budalangi MP, Raphael Wanjala who assured Uhuruto of overwhelming votes from Western Kenya in the forthcoming general elections.

The Water and Irrigation Cabinet Secretary, Eugene Wamalwa stated that he will offer President Kenyatta the maximum political support to ensure he recaptures the seat.

Mount Kenya parliamentary group chairman and Dagorreti South MP, Dennis Waweru welcomed the announcement and said Jubilee politicians will visit the Western region to receive the political declaration which he said was a mileage to President Kenyatta.
