JP aspirants asked to back one popular candidate
Elders from Kuresoi South are concerned that the growing number of MP aspirants who want to run on the Jubilee Party ticket will cause disunity. They urged aspirants to voluntarily drop their bids for legislator and support Nakuru Education chief officer Joseph Tonui, who they said is popular. Tonui ran on the Kanu ticket and emerged second in the March 4, 2013, elections, losing to Zakayo Cheruiyot. “We as elders who are members of Jubilee party want to caution these youthful aspirants against dividing votes in this region. We want them to back one of them who is stronger to battle with the incumbent, who might use CCM party,” Johnstone Sigilai said. The list of JP aspirants has risen to 15.
