Ju­bilee top bosses will be ca­su­al­ties at party pri­maries

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

Ev­ery time we draw near elec­tions, politi­cians be­come ei­ther po­lit­i­cally naive or ex­tremely cheap to hire. Dur­ing the Ju­bilee Party launch at Kasarani Sta­dium, we saw lead­ers from other par­ties de­fect­ing with­out any ex­pla­na­tion on the ide­o­log­i­cal dif­fer­ences that led to their exit. What they are blind to is the dan­ger of them los­ing at the pri­maries, given the his­tory of rig­ging and favouritism at the grass­roots level. Both the Pres­i­dent and the Deputy Pres­i­dent, who are the party lead­ers, promised free and fair pri­maries. These words will ei­ther make or break the party. The prob­lem is some of the lead­ers to have been be­hind the for­ma­tion of the party are un­pop­u­lar among their con­stituents due to their per­for­mance in their term. This will make them ca­su­al­ties at the nom­i­na­tions. Vot­ers must crit­i­cally an­a­lyse their lead­ers not be­cause of their party po­si­tions but per­for­mance.
