Scandals killing Uhuru's chances in 2017, Jubilee MP says

24 February 2016, 13:02 William Korir

Nairobi - A Jubilee MP admits that the scandals hitting the Jubilee Government are hurting President Uhuru Kenyatta's chances of re-election in the 2017 elections.

Nominated MP Johnstone Sakaja says that the sheer number of scandals that have hit the government are not good for the Jubilee re-election agenda in 2017.

The Jubilee government has been hit with scandal after scandal, with the latest having top leaders Aden Duale and Kipchumba Murkomen implicated in the KES 791 million National Youth Service NYS scandal.

Sakaja says that the timing of the scandals is not ideal.

" The claims are yet to be proven and as such they are just claims but yes, it is not good for the government to be implicated in such scandals. It is not good for the coalition," he said.

With the 2017 polls not far away, Sakaja says that it is prudent the scandals go away to stop the coalition losing ground to its rivals.

" The Coalition is still strong and we are confident of winning the presidency in the 2017 elections," he added.

Former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru has implicated Duale and Murkomen in the NYS saga, both who are close confidants of the presidency.

Jubilee MP Alfred Keter has already called for the two to resign from office in the wake of the allegations.
