Don’t dis­crim­i­nate against us, Ka­ji­ado hope­fuls tell JP

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Two Ka­ji­ado Ju­bilee Party gover­nor as­pi­rants have com­plained about not be­ing in­vited to the county lead­ers’ meet­ing in Nairobi on Monday.

Busi­ness­men and politi­cians Ge­orge King’ori and Moses Paran­tai said the or­gan­is­ers dis­crim­i­nated against some as­pi­rants. Twenty-six elected lead­ers at­tended the meet­ing con­vened by Ka­ji­ado South MP Ka­too ole Metito.

Paran­tai yes­ter­day said, “We are com­plain­ing openly be­cause we feel cheated in the Ju­bilee Party. We have spent a lot of re­sources as in­di­vid­u­als to mar­ket the party.”

Kong’ori said, “If this is the way it will run its af­fairs, JP will lose mis­er­ably.”

Yes­ter­day, Metito said the two were not in­vited be­cause their in­tegrity is “ques­tion­able”. “We in­vited three other gover­nor as­pi­rants – Daniel Nina, Joseph Lenku and Taraya Kores – be­cause they have in­tegrity,” he said.
