Mpango wa kando list to cost Uhuru the Presidency- Jubilee politicians declare
The list that is full of mipango ya kando (girlfriends).
The leaders are among those who lost during the Jubilee primaries.
They declared their dissatisfaction in the list of politicians proposed for nomination highlighting that favoritism played a huge role in selecting the leaders.
The politicians noted that they had been left in the cold yet they had worked hard for the party.
"We cannot accept the list that is full of mipango ya kando (girlfriends) and friends of some people yet those of us who worked for the party, and even paid nomination fees, have been left out," the spokesman Phillip Chebunet said.
Speaking during a press briefing, Mr. Chebunet asked President Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto to intervene failure to which they will withdraw their support.
They also threatened to move to court if the proposed names were not withdrawn and a new list agreed upon.
“If they don’t consider our grievances, we will withdraw our support for party candidates and advise our supporters to make different decisions," Chebunet mentioned.
Chebunet was joined by Daniel Kemei, Nancy Chepsiya and Abraham Mutwol who echoed the same sentiments.
“We were ignored yet the President and DP asked that we back the so-called Jubilee winners during the primaries. We will withdraw the support because it’s like we are not needed," Mutwol was quoted by the Star.
They claimed that they paid huge amounts of money yet they were being sidelined.
