Jubilee supporters decamp to KANU in Kericho by elections

26 January 2016, 20:58

Nairobi - Jubilee Party supporters have threatened to support a KANU candidate in the upcoming Kericho by elections.

In a report on The Star, the supporters say that they are not willing to support Aaron Cheruiyot who has been chosen as the Jubilee flag bearer for the upcoming elections.

The 200 supporters asked former Kipkelion MP Magerer Langat to deliver their message to Deputy President William Ruto ahead of the by-election set for March 7.

They accused the Jubilee Party of holding undemocratic nominations that saw Cheruiyot beat Langat, Sammy Chepkwony and Franklin Bett, whom they said were favourites.

The Standard says  that the supporters described Cheruiyot's nomination as a show of "fraud and disrespect" to residents of Kikpelion and Kericho county.

The group met near Langat's resident in Siret village for more than six hours on Monday evening.

But in quick rejoinder, area Member of Parliament Jackson Rop and his Ainamoi counterpart, Benjamin Langat argued that Kericho was a jubilee zone and JAP would retain the seat left vacant upon the appointment of Charles Keter to the cabinet.

Keter has backed Cheruiyot to deliver the victory in the by elections for Jubilee.
