Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has called upon fresh blood and start for the ruling party Jubilee adding that ‘our party’ will not be mismanaged by a few individuals, just weeks after he openly showed his support for Musalia Mudavadi’s ANC.
Speaking on Sunday, Sakaja was confident that Jubilee is still their party and they are not going to allow it to sink.
“Jubilee is not dead. We must come together as members and hold to account the current leaders. They have to tell us what they have done with the party, if not we will oust them and elect fresh blood,” said the Nairobi senator who also added that the ruling party’s leadership should bring party members together.
Murang’a County women rep Sabina Chege also echoed the same sentiments arguing that Jubilee is still strong, but has some bad elements within.
Chege also detailed that the current leadership in Jubilee is reckless with public relations and needs to be ousted, saying that the party should have leaders who can listen to members.
After Jubilee party recently lost the parliamentary seat in Kiambaa Constituency to DP Ruto’s UDA, some defected members have already called it dead.
“Jubilee party no longer enjoys support in central Kenya. The party does not reflect the people’s wishes,” said Irungu Kang’ata, Murang’a County Senator.
Despite the recent complaints and political defections, now the big question lingering the minds of many is which sides are some politicians on?
Nairobi senator Johnson Sakaja, an outspoken politician is just an example, or maybe it is a game of wait and see, where it will be ripe, then I will dive and swim?
