Opposition leaders and some religious leaders have condemned Jubilee’s merger with other smaller parties, saying it will kill multipartism.

Despite the internal wrangles experienced in its bid to woo affiliate parties to dissolve and merge into one political outfit, Jubilee has still managed to attract many leaders from the opposition.

The latest high profile opposition leader to shift allegiance was the Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya who declared support for Jubilee and the president in the 2017 elections.
