Rift Valley leader turns down Jubilee for KANU
21 July 2016, 19:07
Nairobi - I have no plans of joining Jubilee Coalition, Senator says.
West Pokot Senator John Lonyangapuo says that the Jubilee Coalition has done nothing of importance to warrant him moving to the ruling body.
He accused the government of boxing out the opposition using underhand tactics to kill democracy in Kenya.
He says that he will continue to crusade for his people to get what they deserve, regardless of their standing politically.
" I am not leaving KANU. There is intimidation of the highest order by the government but that will not help anyone because we will remain in the opposition regardless of what they say," he stated.
He accused the Jubilee Coalition of broken promises as well as sidelining communities that did not vote for them.
" The President and the DP have been on record as saying that they know those who did not vote for them, which is an indication of where the government's thinking is," he added.
Meanwhile, the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal Thursday declined to
kick Lonyangapuo and others out of KANU.
The tribunal had
been asked to declare Baringo Senator Gideon Moi, Lonyangapuo, nominated Senator Zipporah
Kittony and Secretary-General Nick Salat non members for supporting
another political party during a by-election
