Do not make dea­mands for JP posts, lead­ers told

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Nyanza -

Ju­bilee Party mem­bers in Nyanza should stop mak­ing de­mands on who should be ap­pointed to party po­si­tions, Nom­i­nated Se­na­tor Joy Gwendo (pic­tured) has said.

She backed Raphael Tuju as the head of the JP sec­re­tariat. Gwendo spoke in Kisumu on Satur­day.

Last week, some JP mem­bers in Nyanza ques­tioned why former TNA sec­re­tary Gen­eral Onyango Oloo was not named in the sec­re­tariat and de­manded that he be in­cluded.

Gwendo said she has no prob­lem with Oloo, but the choice of Tuju is the best for the new party.

She said mem­bers should not hold party own­ers to ran­som on who should be ap­pointed to lead the party.

“As the Luo com­mu­nity we should be happy be­cause Tuju has been given a high po­si­tion in the party,” she said.
