BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,26TH FEB 2017-The meeting that brought together supporters of Jubilee’s Nairobi gubernatorial aspirants of peter Kenneth,senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko and Dennies waweru ended prematurely on Sunday after they clashed in Dagoreti.
The football match which was being played on the same day was also cut short with every party blaming each other for the may helm. Mike sonko who is eying the governorship of the most influencial county of Nairobi blamed the supporters of Dagoreti south member of parliament Denies Waweru and the former Gatanga MP Peter Keneth for the aborted meeting.
The same was the case with Kenneth and Waweru.It all started after all the three candidates had just arrived at the venue when youths from one section of the field begun throwing stones.The move further complicates the Jubilee politics in Nairobi especially for those who have already expressed interest in going for the governorship.
As the days draw nearer to the August 8th general elections one can only hope that things will shape up in the ruling party Jubilee and various politicians decide to put aside their political interests for the sake of others in order to have harmony and peace.
THE HARD TEST
Jubilee party finds itself between a rock and a hard surface especially after the party hoping law was passed.After the nomination no politician will be allowed to cross over to any other party because the law does not allow .This means that many Jubilee politicians in the Jubilee party who will not have been nominated risk being locked out of the 2017 elections.
The most unfortunate thing is all the politicians scrambling for the single ticket to go for the governorship in Nairobi in Jubilee can only get one ticket after the nomination.
This means that the rest must find a formulae to share the rest of the lesser slots of deputy governor and the senator.This is what the party must start working on going forward.balancing the hard maths.
Failure to plan carefully on the Jubilee side will easily give the incumbent Evans Kidero a win in the morning before 9am on the August 8th.
