Coast Governor shifts alegiance to Jubilee Party

04 September 2016, 09:25 John Tsuma

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto’s visit to the coast region seems to have bore fruits after Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya declared support for Jubilee and the president in the coming general election.

Kenyatta and Ruto winded up their four day visit to the region at a rally at Jomo Kenyatta Primary School in Msambweni, Kwale County after launching various projects.

Kicking off the storm was his deputy Fatuma Achani who said that politics are shifting to development based politics.

“We want politics with action, we don’t want to be pushed to sides that do not benefit our people” she said.

When Mvurya stood to speak he was declared his support for Uhuru and Ruto and urged his supporters to vote them back in the next year’s general elections.

“Our agenda is development and we have seen the President has supported our agenda therefore we should support him in the coming elections by voting for him,” said Mvurya amid applause.

Mvurya said that him and his deputy would provide political direction on which their followers in the county should follow.

“The way you have trusted us with our leadership and development projects, I urge you to do the same as we provide the direction of politics we are going to follow” he said as Uhuru and Ruto watched.

Political parties affiliated to jubilee are dissolving to form Jubilee Party which will be launched on 10th September.

Mvurya said that after the formation of the party, they will bring in their support.

 “Although we have not clearly heard the agenda of what you are forming, tell us so that we can make the government together,” said

Kenyatta referred to Mvurya as a respected leader that they are ready to work with.

 “And because Mvurya is someone with respect we welcome him to come and work with us. Because he is a person with respect he should unite with people of respect like us,” he said

Ruto said the ambition of Jubilee Party is to bring together all tribes and religions without discrimination.

“We want to form a party that will put every tribe and religion together, and that’s why we are asking Mvurya and co to join us in forming the party” he said.

On her part Kwale Women rep Zainab Chidzuga said that because of the goodies Kenyatta has brought to the people of Kwale, they must “return a hand”.

Msambweni MP Suleiman Dori said there no permanent political friends or enemies and they will work with the President.
