UDA Party awards nomination certificates to Kiambaa, Muguga by-elections candidates

Date:

The United Democratic Alliance (UDA)Party has unveiled its candidates for the upcoming Kiambaa constituency and Muguga ward by-election.

UDA Patry Secretary-General Veronica Maina on Friday awarded nomination certificates to Kamau Thumbi and John Njuguna Wanjiku for Muguga and Kiambaa, respectively.

She said the party would start campaigns for the two seats.

Meanwhile, the Jubilee party has decided to do things differently and opted for interviews instead of conducting nominations for aspirants of the by-elections.

Jubilee party has suffered a significant setback after experiencing a string of losses in its perceived strongholds in the Juja, Rurii and recent Bonchari by-elections.

All aspirants for the Kiambaa constituency and Muguga ward by-elections have been directed to present themselves at Jubilee headquarters on Saturday, May 22, for the interview.

Jubilee Party Secretary-General Raphael Tuju, in a statement on Thursday, May 21, said that successful candidates shall be presented with a nomination certificate in accordance with the part Nominations Rules 2010.

“We regret any inconveniences caused by the change of mode of nominations,” Tuju stated.

The party’s change of tact has elicited reactions from various politicians and Kenyans at large.

Nakuru County Governor Lee Kinyanjui blamed Jubilee’s nomination process for the major election losses.

The MP claimed that the party has been imposing candidates based on connections, emotions or economic gain.

“The outcome of recent by-elections depict a growing disconnect with the public feelings. We cannot address this challenge by denying its existence,” Kinyanjui noted.

The legislator added that “as a result, we strongly believe that it is time to institute drastic and wide-ranging changes at the party helm; to inject fresh blood and restore the dreams of its support base. This is a required bitter pill that we must swallow.
