Jubilee worried Raila will ‘steal the show’ on Madaraka Day

26 May 2016, 09:14 Scoop Desk

Nairobi - Jubilee insiders have raised concerns over the opposition’s plans to have parallel Madaraka Day celebrations in the heart of the city.

Cord has announced it will have its ‘own’ Madaraka Day celebrations at the historic Uhuru Park as President Uhuru Kenyatta leads the official celebrations at Afraha Stadium in Nakuru.

Government supporters believe Nairobi is the de facto centre of power and allowing Cord to have its celebrations there will make them ‘steal the show’ on Madaraka Day celebrations.

“Nairobi is the centre of power. How can you allow your enemy to have it?” a Jubilee MP who declined to be named said.

Cord has said their rally purpose is to “celebrate civil liberties and freedoms and reaffirm the quest for constitutionalism”.

Jubilee apparently chose Nakuru to rubber stamp their authority in the Rift Valley after a Kanu threatened resurgence.

Preparations at the Afraha Stadium are in top gear with the venue getting a facelift ready to host Kenya’s most powerful.
