This is coming just days before the highly anticipated Sagana 3 meeting next week on Wednesday, where President Uhuru will outline his political agenda for his backyard.
Officials from the party’s Pangani Headquarters in Nairobi confide to this publication their offices are witnessing an upsurge in the number of Kenyans, especially from Central Kenya, who want to run for office under the ruling party’s ticket.
On Friday, thousands of the party’s supporters in Gatanga, Mathioya, Kangema, Kieni, Njoro, and Kipiri constituencies came out to assert the rebranded Jubilee Party’s presence in the region and pledged allegiance to President Uhuru Kenyatta, the party leader.
Next week on 25th and 26th, Uhuru Kenyatta will meet the ruling party’s delegates from across the country in Nairobi at an event that will see Jubilee Party officially enter into a coalition with Raila Odinga, and unveiling him as their joint presidential candidate.
