Jubilee raids Mudavadi's backyard

21 August 2016, 18:31 Dareel Eric

Vihiga - Jubilee party has started recruitment on a high note in Amani National Congress party leader and presidential hopeful Musalia Mudavadi's stronghold. 

Four political parties in Vihiga County agreed to the merger with Jubilee in readiness for national launch set for next month.

Officials from United Democratic Front (UDF), United Republican Party (URP), The National Alliance (TNA) and Ford People said they will fold up their parties in the County to join Jubilee Party because they do not wish to go against their seniors' decision.

“The perception created is that people think there are no Jubilee supporters in Vihiga County. We want to let them know that the party has already taken root, and we have embarked on serious recruitment of more members,” said Elphas Mungaya, interim chairperson for Jubilee.

He added, “The parties are collectively bringing over 15,000 members to Jubilee as we embark on further registration of new members who are willing to join en masse.”

The parties’ officials led by county chairpersons Jane Chunguli (Ford People), Anamange Savulane (URP), Elphas Mungaya (TNA) and UDF secretary general Wycliffe Chitwah noted the parties agreed to merge without coercion.

The leaders appointed to oversee the party’s operations in the County include Marble Kiforo (chief executive officer), Elphas Mungaya (chair), John Esoria and Florence Alukose (vice chairpersons), Savulane Anamange (secretary), and Solomon Chavuza and Wycliffe Chitwah (deputy secretary).    

Others include Jane Chunguli (treasurer), Eajan Atingo (organising secretary), Naomi Mwashi (women league), Christopher Wache (disabled league), Jason Osotsi (elders) and Felix Vulimu (youth).

Mungaya said they had employed regional balance in allocation of slots for new leaders of the party.

He further said they have already got some aspirants lining up to contest for various seats in the county on the party’s ticket.  

Mrs Kifworo said they do not fear venturing into Musalia Mudavadi’s zone noting they have been in the region and have survived while supporting Jubilee in the past.

“We are not advocating for any violence and neither are we fearing hostility in Mudavadi’s zone. People are pushing us to quickly finalise the party’s structure so they can join,” she said.    

The officials further noted they will seek audience with President Uhuru Kenyatta when he visits the region later this month to discuss ways of strengthening the party even further.

The merge of Jubilee affiliate parties has received criticism from various quarters, while leaders from the entire western region are still calling for Luhya unity.   

On Saturday, prominent leaders from Western region led by Cotu secretary general Francis Atwoli endorsed Mudavadi’s candidacy for the top job.
