"Jubilee Party will not field a candidate in the forthcoming Embakasi South by-elections. As such in the spirit of the handshake and the Building Bridges Initiative, myself and like-minded leaders, in our individual capacities, have today resolved to support Hon Musili Mawathe (Wiper) to retain his seat," the Gatundu South MP said.
The Jubilee Party leadership had released a statement saying it will not field candidates in the forthcoming by-elections in Embakasi South and Ugenya Constituencies.
“After wide consultations, the Jubilee Party leadership has decided that the Party shall not be fielding candidates for the forthcoming Parliamentary by-elections in Ugenya and Embakasi South Constituencies,” read part of the statement.
The party had said that it will not support any candidate taking part in the by-election.
Wiper party leader, Kalonzo Musyoka told the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) to prepare for a bruising battle in the forthcoming Embakasi South by-election slated for April 5.
Kathiani MP Robert Mbui said the rivalry over the seat was causing unnecessary animosity at a time when the country is enjoying relative peace.
