Jubilee MPs were forced to endorse 'Tuko Pamoja' party

17 December 2015, 09:37 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - An MP allied to the URP party has said that Jubilee leaders were forced to endorse the new 'Tuko Pamoja' party.

Kuresoi south MP, Zakayo Cheruiyot said that members of parliament who were opposed to the idea of the merger of URP and TNA were threatened with serious political consequences.

Speaking Wednesday in Kuresoi town, Cheruiyot said that they were called to State House to rubber-stamp what the President and his deputy had already agreed upon.

"Some of us opposed the idea and called for more time but we were threatened with dire consequences and I know many MPs especially from URP who were not happy with the idea," said Cheruiyot.

"UhuRuto are the owners of the idea and MPs were not part of it," he said and called on Rift Valley leaders to rethink the dissolution of URP.

He also claimed that some MPs were promised a direct nomination in 2017 if they support the merger of URP and TNA.

"There are people who have been promised an easy sail come 2017 but that was just a bait to get them into supporting the new party," said Cheruiyot.
