Nakuru - Saturday’s official launch of the Jubilee party had minimal impact on Kenya's politics, a member of parliament has said.
Emurua Dikir MP, Johanna Ng’eno said that the launch of the new party was overly hyped and changed nothing in the current political setting.
He said that Jubilee party has nothing new to offer and that the only thing that changed is its name.
Speaking Tuesday in a phone interview Nge’no said that the new party means nothing to Kenyans and was mainly coined to meet the selfish political desires of two people.

“I see nothing new that came with the launch of the jubilee party and in any case things have remained as they were and nothing has changed .The event was overly hyped to send shivers among opposition supporters but that never worked,” said Ng’eno.
“Jubilee is a party not for Kenyans because it was created with the sole aim of protecting the interests of two individuals .The party does not protect the interests of Kenyans in anyway and its is owned by two individuals as opposed to what we are being told,” he said.
The MP added that it was a big shame for the government to spend public resources on launching a political party something he said should have been funded by the party itself.
Ng'eno is among the URP members of Parliament who refused to join the new outfit
