Kabogo urges Jubilee leaders to popularise party
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.
