URP to rethink its decision to join JAP
14 April 2015, 13:10
Nakuru - The United Republican Party (URP) will rethink its decision to join the Jubilee Alliance Party before reaching a final decision.
Kuresoi north MP, Moses Cheboi said that URP is seriously thinking about whether it should dissolve and join JAP or remain as an independent entity.
Speaking at Nakuru town Monday evening, Cheboi said that URP members are deeply concerned about being rendered political orphans should they dissolve their own house.
“Members of URP have been raising concerns and their concerns are very valid because the speed at which JAP was formed is questionable and as URP, we have decided to reconsider our stand regarding JAP and we will allow party members to decide what should be done and when it should be done,” said Cheboi.

Cheboi added that URP is watching keenly on how the war on corrupt government officials will unfold, saying that there is a scheme in government to portray URP members as corrupt.
“URP is not sleeping and those who think they can kill URP by tainting its members' images are wrong. We cannot be friends with you if you are plotting on how to bring down my friends behind my back,” he said.
“If it is corruption, then let it be fought on both sides of the divide instead of targeting only URP. The idea of JAP must be put on hold now until when the right time comes,” he added.
URP is headed by deputy president William Ruto whose close associates were adversely mentioned in the recent list of shame.
