Starehe MP Jaguar ditches Jubilee Party for DP Ruto’s UDA

A massive exodus is still being witnessed in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s led party Jubilee, after Starehe Member of Parliament (MP) Charles Njagua aka Jaguar decamped to United Democratic Alliance (UDA).

On Monday, Jaguar was officially welcomed to the UDA party by Deputy President William Ruto in an occasion that was held at his Karen office.

The legislator has become to latest addition to the UDA brigade after vernacular radio presenter Njogu wa Njoroge, Comedian Jasper Muthomi aka MC Jessy and gospel singer Rufftone.

In 2017, Jaguar won the Starehe parliamentary seat on a Jubilee Party ticket, after flopping his able competitors Steve Mbogo and Boniface Mwangi.

“Nothing would count without God Above. I thank the People of Starehe for having the confidence and trust in me to represent them in Parliament. I thank all my supporters, friends and family who stayed out late campaigning. I also congratulate my Worthy Opponents; Steve Mbogo, Boniface Mwangi and Hon Kwenya who put up well spirited campaigns,” Jaguar said in 2017 after emerging victorious.

The MP has joined UDA at a time the party has promised to work with Musalia Mudavadi's Amani National Congress (ANC) party ahead of the August polls.

On Sunday, Deputy President William Ruto graced the ANC Party's National Delegates Conference at the Bomas of Kenya where he vowed to work with Mudavadi and Wetangula.

“We must protect and consolidate our democracy and allow every Kenyan to freely make their political choices. We must resist the criminalisation of dissenting or alternative views. The criminal justice system cannot be weaponised to drive political narratives,” reads a tweet from DP Ruto.

Speaking at Bomas, Mudavadi said that joining Raila Odinga’s Azimio la Umoja was not an option.

Mudavadi, however, maintained that - having received the mandate from his party - he will be vying as the ANC presidential candidate at the August polls.

"For the avoidance of doubt, ANC's stand, which I am privileged to announce, is that the spectre called Azimio is not an option when it comes to partnerships," Mudavadi stated in what can be assumed to have been his 'earthquake' announcement.
