Stop Wamalwa talk, Uhuru orders Jubilee MPs

30 August 2016, 10:18 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Stop talking about Eugene Wamalwa, Jubilee Coalition leaders have been ordered by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

According to sources close to State House, the President made the order after it emerged that camps are forming within the ruling Coalition over the supposed anointment of Wamalwa as the Jubilee candidate for the Nairobi Governor's seat in the upcoming 2017 elections.

The sources say that the President is worried that the rift created by the pro and anti Wamalwa teams will be too much to heal after the nomination process.

" The President has made it clear that he does not want to hear the Eugene Wamalwa stories again," the source told News24.

The controversy started when a group of central Kenya MPs openly supported Wamalwa and were followed by a group of Nairobi based legislators.

However, a team led by Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko and others in his support countered the move, causing a series of public arguments.

" The upcoming Jubilee Party nominations will make or break the party. The President recognises so and has thus asked that for now silence prevails while the new party is being formed," the source added.

When quizzed about the order, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria said that he knows who he will support but that at the end of the day the unity of the Jubilee Party is vital.

" We have to strive to maintain unity at all costs," he said.

Kuria was one of the MPs who supported a Wamalwa nomination, saying that he was the best choice for the job.
