URP plans crisis meeting over parastatal appointments

03 May 2015, 10:14 William Korir

Nairobi - The United Republican Party URP will meet this coming week to iron out issues affecting the party including the recent alleged skewed parastatal appointments.

The party is currently in an unhappy state after most of its members raised the red flag over the recent parastatal appointments, in which it feels it was overlooked.

Legislators who spoke to News24 on the appointments were clearly unhappy over the appointments, stating once again that the party had been overlooked.

Others had a gripe that some of their political rivals had landed appointments.

" There is a problem and we want it addressed. Once again, we feel we have been given a raw deal. This is something that we have to speak about," an MP from the North Rift that did not want to be named said.

The mistrust between URP and The National Alliance wing of the coalition has caused there to be cold feet in the clamour to merge the two parties together to form the Jubilee Alliance Party JAP.

" We cannot trust them. How do they expect us to work together in one party if they are acting like this when we are partners," another North Rift MP posed.

The meeting is expected to be held at the Weston Hotel in Nairobi on Wednesday.

Also on the agenda will be the issue of the recent expulsion of 9 Member of County Assemblies from Bomet, which has caused even further issues, especially with Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto being a well known tyrant.

The 9 were expelled over alleged indiscipline and Ruto has stated that he will fight for their re-instatement.

" It is unfair that persons of a different opinion to the Deputy President are mistreated by the party," he said.

Aurelia Chepkirui, Bency Too, Beatrice Chepkirui, Taplelei Rotich, Rose Boiyon, Josephine Rotich, Nancy Chepkirui, Hellen Chepkirui and Patrick Chepkwony were expelled by the party last week.

They are well known to be supporters of the Bomet Governor.
