URP feels shortchanged in new Jubilee Alliance Party

26 January 2015, 08:24 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - The United Republican Party (URP) officials in Nyeri County have expressed their dissatisfaction following the formation of Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP).

JAP is said to be a merger of URP, The National Alliance (TNA) party and other affiliate parties.

The officials led by Kamau Gatwechi complained that TNA Nyeri County offices have been re-branded to JAP without consulting URP members.

“Our partners in TNA have re-branded their county offices to JAP and have gone further to include URP colours and symbols in their offices without involving us,” said Kamau while addressing journalists in Nyeri town.

He asserted that TNA’s Nyeri County chairman, Thuo Mathenge had claimed to have blessings of JAP officials in the move.

“JAP is still a new party which TNA and URP members are contemplating to join but it is yet to give directions on opening of regional offices. Therefore, the TNA chairman behind the branding should lower political temperatures though he has political interests,” said Kamau.

He accused Thuo of having ‘a one-man show, by making individual decisions and purporting they have been made by members of both parties’.

“URP must be accommodated at the grassroots the same way it is been involved in top decisions. Re-branding of offices and including URP colours indicates that we are sharing offices which is misleading,” Kamau added.
