Jubilee leaders condemn Senator Paul Njoroge

28 June 2016, 07:46 Mbugua Marc

Nairobi - Jubilee leaders have condemned nominated Senator Paul Njoroge over his remarks regarding Deputy President William Ruto's candidature.

The Senator called a press conference saying Ruto will not get automatic support from the central Kenya community in 2022.

He further argued that the Deputy President may not be President Uhuru Kenyatta’s running mate in next year’s general election.

Lake View MCA, Simon Wanango accused the Senator of overstepping his mandate saying he should perform his rightful role that he was nominated to do.

Wanango said Naivasha constituency was fully behind the President and his Deputy in the coming election and in 2022, adding that the Njoroge was speaking on his own behalf.

“We are surprised that he has the guts to say such comments on national television knowing clearly that he wants to create animosity among Jubilee supporting communities,” he said.

Nominated MCA Esther Njeri called on the Senator to perform his duties of representation and leave succession politics to other leaders.

“We know he is working for CORD and its agents but he will receive the shock of his life when we vote for our President and his deputy come 2017 and again in 2022,” she said.

Senator Njoroge is yet to clarify his statement which has brought a lot of controversy.

The Senator becomes the second Jubilee official to express the views after Kiambu Governor William Kabogo who said that Ruto will have to ask for votes from central Kenya and not sit down and wait for support.
