Uhuru, Ruto to host Jubilee legislators in Naivasha

15 January 2015, 13:09 William Korir

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto will host a Jubilee coalition meeting in Naivasha which will seek the merging of partner parties into one.

The meeting will kick off next week Thursday and will seek to have key partners National Alliance TNA and United Republican Party URP merge into one party in readiness for the 2017 General election.

The two parties have so far worked in tandem since they won the 2013 General Election, using their numbers to win over several debates in parliament and the Senate.

There will also be talk on the upcoming Kajiado Central by election, where they will seek to usurp the Orange Democratic Movement ODM and win the seat vacated by the now Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery.

" There is need to consolidate and since we have worked very well so far, why should we not have it for consideration? TNA Secretary General George Onyango Oloo said of the proposal.

URP's Aden Duale, who is the majority leader in the National Assembly says thee agenda for the meeting is being made and will be announced in due course.

" We have to strategize for the new year among other things. I cannot confirm the talk of a merger but we will release the agenda soon," he said.

It is understood that the plan is to see president Kenyatta win a second term in office and then from there on, DP Ruto run for the presidency in 2022 under the same banner, a plan that has been supported by URP members.

The Jubilee coalition has 216 MPs in the National Assembly, all of whom are expected to be present in Naivasha.
