Kanini Kega, the Jubilee Party’s director of elections, said in an interview with Inooro TV on Wednesday, April 27, that ODM had called the governing party to ask why it had violated the agreement by fielding a candidate on ODM’s territory.
There had been an agreement between the three parties Jubilee, ODM and Wiper to divide Nairobi into seats depending on their results in the 2017 General Election.
In the deal, Jubilee will put forward candidates in 8 of the 17 seats, Kega said in an interview. Furthermore, no candidate may be endorsed by a party in an area considered to be a stronghold of the party.
As for the growing number of entertainers running for office, Kega said that just because someone has a large fan base doesn’t imply they’re ready to govern the country.
