Kabogo urges Ju­bilee lead­ers to pop­u­larise party

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Central -

Ki­ambu Gover­nor Wil­liam Kabogo (pic­tured) has urged Ju­bilee lead­ers to pop­u­larise the party at the grass­roots. He said Kenyans should join the Ju­bilee Party be­cause its main goal is to unite all Kenyans. Kabogo has been on the cam­paign trail across the county to drum up sup­port for the party. “It does not mat­ter who is in what po­si­tion, but all peo­ple should strive to seek votes and ad­vance Ju­bilee’s agenda,” Kabogo said on Fri­day. He spoke dur­ing a meet-the-peo­ple tour in Gatundu. The gover­nor said the re­cent re­ports of cor­rup­tion meant to crip­ple the Ju­bilee ad­min­is­tra­tion’s devel­op­ment record, should be han­dled swiftly. He urged the op­po­si­tion to stop politi­cis­ing cor­rup­tion mat­ters. “In­di­vid­u­als who are cor­rupt should be held re­spon­si­ble at a per­sonal level with­out drag­ging the whole gov­ern­ment into the mud,” Kabogo said. He said the race to the Au­gust 8, 2017, gen­eral elec­tion has just started. “All the progress we have made in the last three years will be thrown out of the win­dow if we don’t unite and keep our house in or­der. We are tam­ing the op­po­si­tion that has lately over-val­ued its po­lit­i­cal rel­e­vance,” Kabogo said. He also an­nounced that he con­tin­ues to wearthe Ju­bilee man­tle in Cen­tral and urged other lead­ers from the re­gion to join the drive. ICord leader Raila Odinga said Raila has been say­ing for months that Ju­bilee has con­tin­ued to thrive on cor­rup­tion, trib­al­ism and ex­tra­ju­di­cial killings. He ac­cused Ju­bilee of open­ing an “auc­tion­ing shop” to buy lead­ers ac­cord­ing to their worth.
