Details of Uhuru’s major event planned for Saturday

There has been massive blame games in the just concluded party primaries

The party, in a bid to beat the Independent Electriaral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) dateline, will be holding a special National Delegates Convention (NDC) to chat on the way forward, following the just concluded nationwide party nominations.

Sources at the Pangani based Jubilee Headquarters have indicated that the goal of the meeting will be to take stock of the party’s unity following the grueling primaries that saw many aspirants defecting to vie as independent candidates.

In equal measure, top Jubilee supporters including Kiambu governor William Kabogo lost in the just concluded elections.

In Nyeri county, for instance, all the Jubilee MPs and the governor lost to yet a new bunch of leadership.

“Take note that pursuant to Article 7.1 (2) (c) and 7.1 (4) of the Jubilee Party constitution, a meeting of the National Delegates Convention shall be convened at 10am on May 6 at the Bomas of Kenya to discuss the nomination of candidates at the Presidential election to be held in August,” an announcement in the local dailies reads.

It adds: “The agenda also involves nomination of candidates to contest at the presidential election scheduled to be held on 8 August 2017.”

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto will be taking the mantle of Jubilee Party as the presidential and Deputy presidential candidates respectively.

According to party Secretary General Raphael Tuju, the convention will be attended by all sitting governors, MPs, senators, woman representatives and MCAs.

Tuju stated that all members of the National Governing Council and all newly nominated aspirants will also be present during the event.

The ratification comes a week after the opposition team paraded its presidential candidates at Uhuru Park, a move that sparked massive criticism from the ruling Jubilee Party.
