Two JP factions open offices in Kilgoris town
One group is led by former minister Sunkuli and the other by MP Konchellah
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.
