Parties to reap big from Jubilee merger

09 August 2016, 12:55 Jackson Okata

Nairobi - Political parties which have agreed to dissolve and join the new Jubilee party are preparing to reap big from the new party which is expected to be officially launched next month.

According to insider sources, parties that agreed to the merger will receive hundreds of millions of shillings before the main launch which is expected to be presided over by President Kenyatta.

Speaking Tuesday in Nakuru during an exclusive interview with News24, a senior source who is part of the committee that was tasked with drafting the merger agreement and who sought anonymity confirmed that all major parties which agreed to relinquish their identities will receive not less than KES 500,000, money which will be paid to the parties before they sign the merger agreements and documents.

“There are some major parties like APK, New Ford Kenya and Ford People which agreed to dissolve and join the Jubilee party and they will be paid handsomely before the official launch. Each party will be paid according to its political strength and the number of votes it is likely to bring to the Jubilee fold,” said the source.

“The parties agreed to sell their identities to the Jubilee party and they must be compensated for the same and once that happens many smaller parties will be enticed into dissolving and joining jubilee because of the money factor,” he said.

Already, 19 political parties have agreed to dissolve and form a single party which President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto will use in seeking reelection in 2017.
