JP of­fi­cials don’t re­flect the face of Kenya, say MCAs

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Bun­goma MCAs have dis­missed the Ju­bilee Party in­terim na­tional of­fi­cials an­nounced on Thurs­day by in­terim com­mit­tee chair­man Noah Wekesa.Speak­ing to the me­dia in Bun­goma town yes­ter­day, ma­jor­ity leader Henry Ny­ongesa said the former Ju­bilee Al­liance Party of­fi­cials, who now lead JP, do not re­flect the face of Kenya . “You can­not pur­port that the Ju­bilee Party is a na­tional out­fit, yet all of­fi­cials come from two tribes,” Ny­ongesa said. The MCAs said un­less the in­terim of­fi­cials are changed, the party will look like TNA and URP, which ma­jorly con­sisted of two tribes. “In our agree­ment be­fore the dis­so­lu­tion, the na­tional chair­man or sec­re­tary gen­eral were to come from Bun­goma Gover­nor Ken­neth Lusaka’s New Ford Kenya. We don’t want any­thing else. Let us stick to the agree­ment,” Ny­ongesa said. He said it would be dif­fi­cult to sell JP in the re­gion if New Ford Kenya mem­bers don’t get top seats.
