Sonko leads Kamba MPs to DP Ruto’s home where they pledged allegiance to Jubilee Party

The leaders dismissed the notion that the Ukambani region was an opposition zone.

 

The MPs who included Victor Munyaka (Machakos Town), Regina Ndambuki (Kilome), Rachel Nyamai (Kitui South), Joe Mutambo (Mwingi Central), Benson Mbai (Masinga) and Kisoi Munyao (Mbooni) said that Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka had no chance of clinching the National Super Alliance (Nasa) party ticket.

Other leaders present included and former legislators Philip Kaloki, Kalembe Ndile, Sports Kenya Chairman Fred Muteti and Makueni speaker Stephen Ngelu.

The claimed that ODM leader Raila Odinga will not allow anyone else to clinch the flag bearer position to face President Uhuru Kenyatta during the August elections.

“More than half of elected leaders from Ukambani are in Jubilee,” Mwingi Central MP Joe Mutambo said.

Jubilee benefits

“Kenya wants leaders who can change the country for the better and its only Jubilee leaders who can do this,” Mbooni MP Kisoi Munyao said.

The leaders said the Kamba community had benefited immensely under the Jubilee Government through various development projects going into hundreds of billion as compared to the previous governments.

They said Jubilee was a party with a national outlook and a clear agenda for Kenyans.

DP Ruto said he was impressed by the leaders’ decision to unite and woo members of the Kamba community to work with Jubilee for unity and development.

He said there was nothing wrong with the region shifting its political allegiance to Jubilee “because the party is keen on developing all areas irrespective of voting patterns”.

“I ask you to support Jubilee because it is a party that has an agenda to change the lives of Kenyans. This is what you need to look for in politics and not your tribesman or kinsman,” said Mr Ruto.

He added: “Kenya wants leaders who can change the country for the better and its only Jubilee leaders who can do this."
