Mt El­gon Ju­bilee lead­ers form cau­cus to un­seat MP Serut, lobby for JP as­pi­rant

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Politi­cians in Mt El­gon con­stituency al­lied to the Ju­bilee Party have formed a cau­cus to stop MP John Serut’s re­elec­tion.

Serut was elected as an in­de­pen­dent can­di­date, beat­ing for­mer MP Fred Kapondi and busi­ness­man Harry Kim­tai.

The lead­ers want a JP can­di­date to win the elec­tion. They are Bun­goma Deputy Gov­er­nor Hil­lary Chong­wony, busi­ness­man Peter Si­rai, County Pub­lic Ad­min­is­tra­tion ex­ec­u­tive Mokin Ptang’uny and Gov­er­nor Ken­neth Lusaka’s gen­der ad­viser Jen­nifer Mba­tiany.

They met yes­ter­day in El­doret town and have formed a cam­paign team that will co­or­di­nate the party’s ac­tiv­i­ties in the con­stituency.

“Our great­est en­emy is the sit­ting MP. We want to send him into po­lit­i­cal obliv­ion. He has failed us. There are no tan­gi­ble projects to be seen on the ground. Let’s sup­port the gov­ern­ment of the day so that we can realise de­vel­op­ment,” Chong­wony said.
