Two Ju­bilee Party fac­tions are open­ing par­al­lel of­fices in Kil­go­ris town, Trans Mara West sub­county, Narok.

A fac­tion al­lied to for­mer In­ter­nal Se­cu­rity min­is­ter Julius Sunkuli opened its of­fice on Fri­day, while another al­lied to Kil­go­ris MP Gideon Konchel­lah will open its of­fice to­mor­row. Speak­ing to jour­nal­ists af­ter open­ing the of­fice, Sunkuli said Narok county is a Ju­bilee zone. He said they will launch cam­paigns on Thurs­day. Sunkuli said prom­i­nent party lead­ers will be present.

“I have heard Konchel­lah will be open­ing another of­fice this week. We have no prob­lem with that as long as we are all cam­paign­ing for the re­elec­tion of Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta and Deputy Pres­i­dent William Ruto,” Sunkuli said. Joel Ta­sur, whth the Ju­bilee ticket, dis­missed Sunkuli, say­ing the of­fice he opened is a pri­vate one be­cause he did not in­volve JP lead­ers.

He said the of­fices they will open to­mor­row will ac­com­mo­date all Ju­bilee sup­port­ers in the con­stituency. “Sunkuli’s meet­ing af­ter he opened the of­fice was at­tended only by mem­bers of his Moi­tanik clan, yet we have the Uasin Gishu and Siria clans of the Maa­sai com­mu­nity, and also the Kip­sigis com­mu­nity, who are res­i­dents of this con­stituency. But they were not in­vited,” he said.
