Jubilee has two candidates in Kajiado, jokes Sakaja

29 January 2015, 13:11 William Korir

Nairobi - The Orange Democratic Movement ODM's candidate for the Kajiado Central by election Elijah Memosi Kanchuri is a Jubilee member, nominated MP Johnstone Sakaja has joked.

The abrasive Memosi quit the Jubilee Alliance Party last week after what he termed was favouritism in choosing the preferred candidate for the by election.

He quickly decamped to ODM and won the party's ticket to run for the by election Wednesday.

He garnered 9,263 votes to closest challenger Samuel Ole Parasha who got 1497 votes, Peter Nkeri 566 votes, Naomi Kipuru 367 votes and Paul Ole Kiaka who only managed 288 votes.

But Sakaja, who is in bullish mood ahead of the election, mocked ODM for taking their former candidate to run for the elections.

" I can see there will be two Jubilee candidates running for the Kajiado by election," he joked of the ODM choice for nominee.

But Memosi, in a telephone interview said he was confident that he was by far the most popular candidate in the constituency.

" I am the most popular candidate and I am confident that when we meet in the ballot, you will see the results," he said of his candidature.

The by election is being held to replace Joseph Nkaissery who has joined the cabinet as the Interior and Coordination Cabinet Secretary.

ODM is set to campaign heavily in the region, with CORD leaders Kalonzo Musyoka, Moses Wetangula and ODM leader Raila Odinga all expected to visit the area to campaign for Memosi.

The party is seeking to ensure it retains the seat, as Nkaissery was an ODM member and the loss will spell the death of the party in the Kajiado region, as all other constituencies in the region fall under the Jubilee umbrella.
