Ju­bilee fac­tions’ ri­valry in Nakuru deepen cracks

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Rift Valley -

Po­lit­i­cal wran­gles have deep­ened in Nakuru county as two Ju­bilee Party fac­tions wran­gle over leti­macy.

Both fac­tions have dis­missed the ex­is­tence of any dis­pute in­sist­ing the Ju­bilee Party struc­ture and po­si­tions are yet to be es­tab­lished. One fac­tion is led by Nakuru county assem­bly speaker Su­san Ki­hika, Nakuru Town East MP David Gikaria, Subukia MP Nel­son Ngachuhie, Gil­gil MP Nder­itu Mathenge and Nakuru prom­i­nent busi­ness­man Sam Mburu. The other camp is led by Gover­nor Kin­uthia Mbugua, Nakuru Town West MP Sa­muel Arama and Ba­hati MP Kimani Ngun­jiri.

Speak­ing dur­ing the Mashu­jaa Day cel­e­bra­tions, Gover­nor Mbugua said, “No ap­point­ments have been made to fill of­fi­cial JP po­si­tions. Those who are mis­lead­ing the peo­ple should stop”.

He said when the right time comes, the po­si­tions will be filled in an in­clu­sive man­ner. Nakuru branch’s for­mer PNU chair­man John Ka­mama said, “Im­pos­tors, self-seek­ers and power bro­kers are only out to con­fuse res­i­dents on Ju­bilee mat­ters”.
