JP as­pi­rants asked to back one pop­u­lar can­di­date

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Rift Valley -

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.
