Jubilee should announce party structure, officials
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.
