The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Rift Valley -

Ju­bilee will rely on key point­men in Rift Val­ley coun­ties to mar­ket the party ahead of 2017. The Ju­bilee Party to be launched to­mor­row has iden­ti­fied in­di­vid­u­als who will lead the cam­paigns from next week. A list seen by the Star in­di­cates the cam­paign will be co­or­di­nated by El­geyo Marak­wet Se­na­tor Kipchumba Murkomen, State House po­lit­i­cal ad­viser Joshua Ku­tuny and Nandi Se­na­tor Stephen Sang. Oth­ers are Uasin Gishu Gov­er­nor Jack­son Mandago, his West Pokot coun­ter­part Si­mon Kachapin and Baringo Cen­tral MP Sammy Mwaita. Mandago said they are ready to join Ju­bilee and mar­ket it ahead of 2017. “This is a strong move­ment and we will go out to ex­plain to Kenyans our agenda for the next 15 years,” Mandago said. A Ju­bilee MP said each county will be al­lo­cated not less than two ve­hi­cles to co­or­di­nate the cam­paigns. Keiyo North MP Julius Mur­gor said they be­lieve mar­ket­ing the party will en­sure it holds free and fair nom­i­na­tions. “Once the nom­i­na­tions are free, we don’t ex­pect any fall­outs and Ju­bilee will be very strong,” Mur­gor said. Some of the Ju­bilee in­sid­ers told the Star they ex­pect tough com­pe­ti­tion from Kanu and Bomet Gov­er­nor Isaac Rutto’s Chama Cha Mashinani.
