The veteran politician insisted that he won the controversial Jubilee primaries which Jaguar complained had been rigged.

Kamanda added that there were forces in Jubilee spearheading the election of young people.
“The person who won was Maina Kamanda, even if you look at the tallying. I was declared winner by the Returning Officer but there are forces who think that the young people can attract more votes that the old. But we will see,” Kamanda mentioned.
