MP dares to quit Jubilee Party

Nairobi - A Jubilee Coalition MP says that he will consider quitting the Jubilee Party if 2017 election primaries are not fair.
Starehe MP Maina Kamanda says that it will be difficult to foster party unity if there is no fairness when it comes to choosing the party flag bearer for the 2017 elections.
He adds that if there is no fairness, he and others will be forced to make decisions after the primaries set for early 2017.
" It is tough to support a party if there is unfair nomination come the primaries," he told News24.
Referring to the case in which Water and Irrigation CS Eugene Wamalwa is being fronted to be the next nominee for the party in the Nairobi Governor's race, Kamanda stated that nominations must be free and fair.
" I have argued that imposing candidates will go against the will of the people and end up being a handicap to the Jubilee Party in itself," he added.
Kamanda has been against the nomination of Wamalwa by Central Kenya MPs who feel that he is the best candidate for the job to take on Governor Evans Kidero come 2017.
" That should be left to Kenyans to decide, not politicians," he insists.
