Jubilee Party likely to collapse, Mt Kenya MP says

26 September 2016, 16:59 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Jubilee Party is likely to collapse unless serious nomination rules are upheld, an MP from Mt Kenya region has said.

Imenti South MP Kathuri Murungi says that the party has struggled to show that it is ready to hold free and fair nominations and expects it to suffer when the polls come in early 2017.

He says that it is difficult to please so may people and asked the party leadership to be wary.

" Unless we want to see defections, and I am sure the party leadership does not, then there must be free and fair nominations," he told News24 on phone from Imenti.

He stated that there had already been many questions asked about how the nominations would be held and urged the Jubilee Party leadership to set the road-map clear for all to see.

" If people see that there is no fairness, they will jump ship. That is what we must look to avoid if the party is to be a success," he added.

A number of MPs in Meru County have jumped ship from the opposition and will take on candidates who had worked hard to build a name for themselves in anticipation for a Jubilee ticket in 2017 and Murungi accepts that it is going to be a difficult time for the party.

" There are those who have been loyal to the party and others that will come in and expect to have a say, so it will be difficult," he added.

The fight for the Jubilee ticket has been increased ten fold by the new law that outlaws party-hopping.

However, Meru Senator Kiraitu Murungi assured aspirants that nominations will be free and fair. He said the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission will oversee the entire process.
