We are not in Jubilee Alliance Party, UDF declares

19 January 2015, 13:55 Nesta Marley

Bungoma - United Democratic Forum (UDF) party has distanced itself from the newly formed Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP) and announced plans to sever links with Jubilee because 'the approach major parties are taking is condescending to small parties and democracy in the republic'.

This comes after the two major partners in the Jubilee ruling alliance, TNA and URP, resolved to form one party.

UDF secretary general, Justus Kizito, Monday expressed his party’s distress and called on politicians elected under TNA and URP parties to resign for contravening the political parties Act which does not allow jumping from the party that gave them ticket to parliament if they are true democrats.

“What we are witnessing in the country is an assault to multiparty democracy and an introduction of totalitarianism as the formation of one party with a large base will lord it over junior parties and the citizens. The aim of Jap to rule Kenya until 2032 sells it out,” said the former Shinyalu MP.

Kizito wondered what Senate Majority leader, Kindiki Kithure, and Senate Devolution Committee leader, Kipchumba Murkomen, who are popularizing the party are up to.

He said it was unfortunate that such backward ideals were being championed by members of a house that is in charge of fighting totalitarianism and bringing devolution and democracy closer to the people.

“Kindiki who has no numbers from his backyard and Murkomen are supposed to allow democracy to grow under the new constitution as members of an important house - the senate, instead of going round telling people how one alliance intends to rule this nation for 20 years,” he said.

Kizito hinted at UDF’s plan to rebrand to Amani Nationla Congress (Anc) in a bid to distance itself from the machinations of bullying tendencies by TNA and URP.

Lugari MP, Ayub Savula (UDF) last weekend while issuing Uwezo Fund cheques asked their leader Musalia Mudavadi to keep off Jubilee alliance because it cared less for the interests of UDF.
