Speaking to the media in Nakuru town Wednesday, Mwiruri said politicians want to elect officials who will be used to lock out other aspirants from contesting in 2017 general elections.
He said that currently he is pushing the Jubilee Party nominations to be conducted by the Independence Electoral and Boundaries Commissions.
“If we want the nomination process to be conducted in a free and fair manner, IEBC must be there to ensure there is no rigging,” he said.
Mwiruri said all the aspirants who are seeking elective posts will have to raise money to pay the IEBC.
The chairman said that Jubilee government enjoys wide support in Nakuru County but the party risks losing followers if their preferred candidates are forced out.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page!
