The Ju­bilee Party plans to achieve a six-piece vot­ing pat­tern in Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta and DP William Ruto’s strongholds, Na­tional Assem­bly ma­jor­ity leader Aden Duale has said.

He said JP was formed to strengthen their strongholds across the coun­try. Duale said no party, other than Ju­bilee, will be sup­ported af­ter nominations in May next year.

Speak­ing in Thir­ime Grounds, Kikuyu con­stituency, on Sun­day, he urged all strong as­pi­rants to look for sup­port in the pri­maries. Duale at­tended pray­ers or­gan­ised by Kikuyu MP Ki­mani Ichung’wa.

Present were MPs Alice Ng’ang’a (Thika Town), Es­ther Gathogo (Ruiru), Ka­bando wa Ka­bando (Mukur­weini), Mburu Ka­hangara (Lari), Jude Njomo (Ki­ambu), Kigo Njenga (Gatundu North), Moses Kuria (Gatundu South) and Fer­di­nard Waititu (Ka­bete).

Oth­ers in at­ten­dance were Limuru’s John Ki­ragu, Nom­i­nated Se­na­tor Be- atrice Elachi, MCAs Bi­nary Wainaina (Kikuyu Town), Nel­son Munga (Ndeiya) and Njenga Mu­rugami (Limuru Cen­tral).

Duale urged res­i­dents to elect lead­ers who strongly sup­port the gov­ern­ment and are con­ver­sant with the peo­ple’s needs and prob­lems. “This is be­cause we want to achieve the six­piece pat­tern. We want gover­nor, se­na­tor, MPs and MCAs from JP to show sol­i­dar­ity with Uhuru and Ruto. We don’t want dif­fer­ent colours.”
