West Pokot Governor Simon Kachapin has called on the KANU leadership to dissolve the party and join the new Jubilee party. Kachapin who recently ditched KANU and joined Jubilee urged KANU chairman Gideon Moi to come out clear and declare the party’s stand on
whether it’s supporting the government or the opposition.
“We want him to be man enough and tell Kenyans which side the party is supporting. He should show good leadership and not leave people in a dilemma. This is a democratic country and one goes where he or she wishes,” said Kachapin.
The county boss pointed out that the party was sending mixed signals which aren’t good for the party.
“We don’t want, as former members, to see a leader with no stand. We heard most of KANU members are supporting Jubilee,” said Kachapin.
He cited that many people have joined Jubilee because of its development record.
“We want to join a government that will unite Kenyans. The Jubilee government has done a lot in the counties and the country as a whole. It has launched roads and raised the living standards of Kenyans,” noted Kachapin.
Kachapin who is in the Jubilee secretariat campaign team drummed up support for the new party citing that the party has a good agenda of
developing the country.
“I want to assure Kenyans that Jubilee will win with many votes. The party has clear minded people. It is a big ship with experienced leaders,” said Kachapin.
He said that the Jubilee team will automatically deliver a winning formula in the 2017 general elections.
The county boss said the party has put measures in place to make sure it triumphs in the coming general elections.
“We met yesterday and discussed crucial things. We are going to have many meetings for the new party,” he said.
Kachapin faulted the opposition for interfering with IEBC matters, adding that they are in transition and the IEBC commissioners should be given the peace needed to exit slowly.
“The commissioners should be given time. The opposition shouldn’t criticize everything. This shows that they have already sensed defeat,” he said.
