Mr. Kenyatta, who is also Jubilee’s party leader, assured the losers in the much-contested primaries of his unwavering support.

The Head of State highlighted that they had a designated place in the Jubilee Government.

He added that the losers should now work together to ensure that Jubilee leaders emerge victorious in the difference positions they will be battling for in the August 8 General Election.

“We are not leaving anyone behind. We congratulate those who won and ask them to listen to the wishes of the people. To those who lost, we want them to know that we are not abandoning them. Our party does not have a policy of use and abandon,” Mr. Kenyatta said.

During the primaries, big names such as Kiambu Governor William Kabogo, Nakuru counterpart Kinuthia Mbugua, former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth were terribly defeated by their opponents.

Particularly, Kabogo’s ouster came as a shock to many as Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu won by a huge margin.

In his address, President Kenyatta added that the primaries reflected the decision of citizens and should be respected as that.

He highlighted that those who had disputes with the nominations results should forward their complaints to the Party tribunal.

Among those who have raised complaints include Starehe Parliamentary aspirant and singer Charles Kanyi alias Jaguar.
