TNA will join JAP with or without URP, says MP

28 April 2015, 15:47 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - The National alliance party (TNA) will dissolve and join the Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP) with or without their United Republican party (URP) partners, an MP has said.

Bahati member of parliament, Kimani Ngunjiri said that TNA has already decided and is not going to back down on that.

Speaking Tuesday morning in Nakuru town, Ngunjiri said that TNA was ready to join JAP on its own before 2017.

"The President who is the leader of TNA has made it clear that he wants us to join JAP and we cannot keep on debating about that because it is an already made decision. Even if URP will not be ready to dissolve in time, TNA will have no otherwise but join JAP," said Ngunjiri.

Ngunjiri however added that the President's party will continue working with URP as a party whether they join JAP or not.

"Even if we join JA,P we will still work with URP because that is what we agreed on in 2013. Our brothers in rift valley have not understood the JAP idea and we hope that with time they will get the whole concept because it is for the benefit of both sides," he said.

He blamed Rift valley politicians of doing very little to enlighten their people about JAP, something he said has caused all the confusion being witnessed in the coalition.
