Form a single party to rival Jubilee – CS
Wamalwa has asked Kenyans to shun small parties with regional orientation
Water Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa has told the Cord principals to dissolve their regional parties and form one party with a national outlook if they dream of competing with the Jubilee Party.
The CS asked the opposition leaders to emulate Jubilee and create a political party that will unite Kenyans.
“We should form parties based on ideologies and manifestos and do away with small tribal parties that will divide Kenyans along tribal lines,” Wamalwa said.
He asked Kenyans to vote for leaders who have joined parties that accommodate all communities and shun the small ones with a regional orientation.
Wamalwa, however, asked Luhyas to support him to help him to win the Nairobi governor position on a Jubilee ticket.
“I have been supported by all communities and it will be a betrayal if my own people decline to support me in the city race,” he said.
The CS said he will launch more projects with President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto before the end of the year.
Former ODM youth leader Rashid Mohamed said he will throw his weight behind Wamalwa’s bid. He asked Luhyas to withdraw their support for the Nairobi governor.
