KANU will rise if Jubilee parties merge, says analyst

24 March 2016, 14:23 Abdulkarim Taraja

Nairobi - Jubilee will create an opportunity for KANU to rise prior to 2017 general elections if its affiliate parties merge as planned, a political analyst has said.

Speaking to News24 in Kericho County, University of Eldoret and Kabianga Political Communication lecturer and analyst Dr. Philip Chebunet said KANU will play second fiddle to Jubilee if the merger continues.

“If Jubilee disbands all affiliate parties such as URP, TNA, APK and others, they might experience difficulties during party nominations next year,” said Dr. Chebunet.

He said those Jubilee members who fail in the nominations will try to move to KANU.

“In Rift Valley, KANU have declared they won’t join Jubilee Party and so they will be ready to receive all the aggrieved candidates who miss Jubilee nominations,” said Chebunet, adding that DP William Ruto will have a rough time consolidating votes in the Rift valley.

Some members of the Jubilee coalition who are opposed to the merger have threatened to decamp to other parties with the Bomet Governor leaving URP to form his own Mashinani Party.

In the Central, Meru Governor Peter Munya has also threatened to form his own party should Alliance Party of Kenya (Mbus) be dissolved.

“The coalition must maintain their parties if they want to win next year’s general election,” added Chebunet. 

The Deputy President William Ruto has spent millions of shillings convincing voters in the rift valley and across the country to embrace the JAP party saying it is meant to unite Kenyans.
