17 October 2016, 15:11
Nairobi - Luhya leaders risk losing the 2017 elections if they do not link up and become one.
Labour Party of Kenya Deputy Leader Julia Ojiambo says that the party will look to mediate between Presidency chasing Luhya leaders to try endure that they have one voice ahead of the polls.
She says that there is need for them to be together to defeat the Jubilee menace come 2017.
" Without unity there will be failure. I speak to Luhya leaders to unite," she stated.
She said that if the party does not field a candidate in 2017, it will back one of those in
the race. The party has, however, made it clear that it is not allied to
either Jubilee or CORD.
" We will know in due course but if the party does not field its own candidate, it will support efforts to have one good candidate ideologically through a coalition," she added.
LPK is not seriously considering fielding a candidate come 2017.
Party leader Ababu Namwamba has said that he is more focused on the 2022 polls as compared to 2017.
