30 August 2016, 17:19
Nakuru - Nakuru Jubilee affiliate party leaders under the umbrella Nakuru county aspirants have unanimously condemned some Jubilee members over the secret decision after it emerged that some names had already been submitted without consultations.
Led by former Nakuru TNA Chair Abdul Noor, the leaders said they were not consulted in any way over the list that was submitted to Nairobi from Nakuru.
“We want to state here categorically that the list of names submitted in Nairobi is fake since we were not consulted in any way.We are calling for transparency and fairness in the whole issue of delegates” said Noor.
The former Nakuru TNA chair noted that Nakuru JPK leaders drawn form URP, PNU, TNA,Ford Kenya and Ford People parties were not aware of their delegates.
He condemned all those who had submitted the names of delegates to Nairobi saying it was wrong for that to take place without consulting at the grassroots level.
“We have members of Jubilee Party of Kenya from all the parties including URP, PNU, TNA, Ford Kenya and Ford People and they still don’t know their delegates” he added.
Noor however commended the President and his Deputy for trying to unite Kenya through the formation of Jubilee Party of Kenya urging that the party should ensure all tribes are united.
He said as party members, they have all it takes to know the party issues including the delegates and not just an issue of afew individuals.
“We want transparency in all party issues.As members of Jubilee Party of Kenya,we have a right to information pertaining delegates.We will not allow afew people to interfere with the party issues”said Noor.
His sentiments were echoed by Hezron Manyara,a youth leader who urged those in leadership to ensure young leadership in place.
He condemned the issue of old generation clinching to power yet well educated youths are left out on the same.
“We have youths who are educated in this county and Nation at large.We are always told that the future leadership belongs to the youths but why is it that the old generation is clinching to power?”asked Manyara.
Sentiments that were also echoed by Grace Karuga and Sally Gichia who represents the women in the umbrella Nakuru County Aspirants.
The two called for women inclusion in decision making of the Jubilee party of Kenya especially on the issue of delegates.
The meeting comes at a time when the Jubilee Party of Kenya is planning to hold a 3 day delegates conference at Kasarani Nairobi as from 9th September, to discuss the way forward for the party.
