Be wary of defectors to Jubilee Party
Changing one’s membership from one political party to another is okay, if one’s intentions and the reasons behind that decision are clear. A good example is the defection of former Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar from Nasa to Jubilee Party. To me, his decision is driven by personal interest and is, in fact, a betrayal of the opposition as he only moved just after his defeat in the 8th August 8 General Election. Mr Omar must have joined
Jubilee, hoping that he will be given a better position and remain relevant politically.
President Uhuru Kenyatta should be very keen when accepting such people. He should not be so happy seeing the opposition divided and most of the losers are joining his party. You never know it might be a plot against him. Because Mr Omar was a great critic of Jubilee before and used to talk ill of the party. Ironically, he now claims to be a good supporter of Jubilee. This does not make sense at all.
I urge the President to be careful when dealing with such people. He might be on a secret mission and the best way for him to accomplish it is to befriend the President first.
