Eugene wants all Luhya political leaders to support Jubilee's new party

28 December 2015, 11:20 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - Water and Irrigation Cabinet Secretary, Eugene Wamalwa has appealed to all Luhya political leaders to rally behind the new Jubilee party for their community to draw closer to the anticipated Presidency.

Wamalwa, who is the Jubilee coalition's point-man for Luhya votes in 2017, said the community cannot produce a President if it is going to field three candidates for the top-seat in the forthcoming elections.

He pointed out that the decision by FORD Kenya party leader Moses Wetang'ula, the Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi and United Democratic Party (UDP) boss Cyrus Jirongo, each declaring to vie for Presidency will split the Luhya votes.

"Since the last 2013 elections, Luhya community has not registered more than 30 000 new voters yet we think we can use such numbers to ascend to Presidency," said Eugene.

"The 2017 government we should be in support is being formed by merging political parties. We cannot dream of ascending to Presidency when Wetang'ula, Mudavadi and Jirongo are in the race," he cautioned.

He added that unity, dissolving the existing political parties or merging them and fielding one candidate to go for the top-seat will enable the community realize its dream of producing the Head of State.

Eugene who was accompanied by Deputy President, William Ruto affirmed his total support for the new Jubilee party.

"I am committed to the new Jubilee party and the jerseys President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto will wear in 2017 race, are ones I will also wear," assured Eugene.

Ruto told the Luhya nation to support the new Jubilee party to gain popularity ahead of the forthcoming polls to desist from begging for public appointment of its people to a government it never formed.
