Ju­bilee should an­nounce party struc­ture, of­fi­cials

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

The con­sol­i­da­tion of par­ties af­fil­i­ated to Ju­bilee into one mono­lith Ju­bilee Party is ad­mirable in the volatile Kenyan po­lit­i­cal land­scape. Con­grat­u­la­tions to the brain­work that con­vinced other of­fi­cials to dis­solve their par­ties and join JP. The Ju­bilee party was launched with much hype in a colour­ful fete tele­vised live, much to the cha­grin of the op­po­si­tion. The lat­ter is al­ways on de­fence mode. They still don’t have a pres­i­den­tial can­di­date. But even af­ter the launch, Ju­bilee is yet to an­nounce its struc­ture and of­fi­cials. All they have done is to form cam­paign teams. The lack of of­fi­cials has re­sulted in emer­gence of fac­tions at the grass­roots. This is the case in Nyan­darua and Nakuru. The Ju­bilee Party needs to work on its im­age as a demo­cratic out­fit by in­stalling care­taker of­fi­cials in each county. Sub­se­quently, a na­tional party elec­tions day should be set to elect le­git­i­mate of­fice bear­ers.
