The MPs who attended the meeting included Charles Njagua (Starehe), Makali Mulu (Kitui Central), Simon Mbugua (EALA), George Theuri (Embakasi West).

Personal decision

Mr Kuria said that it was his personal decision to support Mawathe in the upcoming by-election adding it was in the spirit of the handshake.

"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.

Rivalry

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.
