We were trying to 'steal' Kajiado seat from ODM, says Oloo

Nairobi - The National Alliance party (TNA) Secretary General Onyango Oloo has said Jubilee alliance is still in the process of merging to form a single party.
According to Oloo, the parties affiliated with the alliance are still in discussion and will soon merge once the discussions are over.
Speaking during a morning talk show program on Ramogi FM, Oloo said Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP) is just the name change of the Conservative party.
The formation of the new political outfit has attracted endorsements and resistance of equal measure. The members of United Republican Party (URP) are worried that the merger will make TNA to overshadow them.
JAP has literally faced the proverbial baptism of fire after its candidate was beaten by ODM's Memusi in Kajiado Central by-election.
Oloo was however, satisfied with outcome of the election and compared the narrow defeat of around five hundred votes to over ten thousand votes they were defeated with in the last election.
"This was an ODM seat, we were trying to take it away from them," he admitted.

About the Jubilee government's performance so far, Oloo said it had scored an A- (minus) as most of the promises that were given during the campaigns are being fulfilled.
"Except a few like the laptops where some politicians have been derailing the process by appealing to the procurement oversight board, others are on course," he said.
He cited the recently launched KES 38 billion cancer screening machines project as government's commitment to improve the health sector as promised.
