Why Peter Kenneth turned down Jubilee

21 March 2016, 21:10 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Peter Kenneth has turned down the chance to work with the Jubilee Coalition but why?

Kenneth has held talks with President Uhuru Kenyatta in recent times and it is understood that the talks centred on him dumping his place in the opposition for a place in the ruling coalition.

But the former Gatanga MP has flatly refused.


First of all, Kenneth is willing only to run for the Presidency come the 2017 elections and he knows that joining the ruling Coalition means that he will have to shelve his plans as he will have to take a step down under President Kenyatta.

Secondly, whilst he understands there is a possibility he might not win in 2017, his best chance lies in 2022 and he knows that a stint at the Presidency in 2017 will warm the people of Central Kenya towards him in advance as they look forward to the retirement of President Kenyatta.

Third, Kenneth is understood not to mind taking on the DP's position but that has thus far been taken by DP William Ruto and it is a closed case.

Lastly, Kenneth claims that the Jubilee government is corrupt and knows that if he in any way forms a coalition or joins them, he will attract the corrupt tag which he has worked so hard to dissociate with his team.

" He will run in 2017. That is certain," an aide of the former MP who asked not to be named told News24.

Kenneth will if he runs compete with Kenyatta, CORD leader Raila Odinga and a host of other leaders for the topmost seat in the country.
