Jubilee aspirants to pay KES150K for Ward Rep nomination

15 January 2016, 12:38 Joseph Njung'eh

Laikipia - The Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP) will cash in millions of shillings from the large number of aspirants vying for the Ngobit Ward representative seat in Laikipia County.

Youths, women and disabled persons will pay KES 75 000 each to participate in the party nominations while aspirants who are above 35 years old will be required to pay KES 150 000.

More than 20 aspirants have expressed interest in the seat that was left vacant following the death of Ephraim Mwangi on Jamhuri Day last year.

Laikipia County interim JAP chairman, Wachira Gituku said the aspirants would in addition pay KES.2,000 membership fee and be escorted by four registered members.

Gituku said TNA and URP were in agreement that they should support one candidate under JAP ahead of the March merger of all parties that support the Jubilee administration.

But party officials have sought to have an upper hand in the by-election.

The County TNA chairman, Christopher Maitho said his party would have an upper hand in the nominations and dismissed JAP officials as impostors.

He insisted that TNA would continue existing and carrying out its mandate until the anticipated merger with other like-minded parties in March.
