Leaders in West Pokot county have told the opposition to stop meddling in Jubilee Party affairs and focus on the opposition issues. The leaders hit out at the opposition for criticizing the party every time.
The leaders led by West Pokot Governor Simon Kachapin claimed that many opposition leaders were getting obsessed with Jubilee affairs.
Kachapin cited that continued criticism of the Jubilee party and the government is malicious.
“They should stop meddling in affairs and focus on CORD or NASA issues. We want them to stop their criticism and propaganda they have concerning Jubilee,” added Kachapin, who said this while inspecting development projects.
He said that the opposition parties were against the coming together of different parties during the formation of Jubilee, and now they themselves want to form NASA. “They were against Jubilee affiliate parties coming together,” said Kachapin.
The governor also claimed that the opposition had sensed defeat in the August polls and is looking for a way of remaining relevant politically. “They should tell Kenyans the agenda they have for Kenyans and not dwell on criticism. All those leaders in the opposition were in government and did nothing to improve the lives of Kenyan. Those people cannot save this country because they are prophets of doom,” said Kachapin.
He said the opposition has been on a countrywide move to discredit the government, a move he termed unwanted.
“They should not criticize the government through the media every day for wrong reasons. Most of the opposition leaders are after their personal gain, not the citizens’ gains,” he said.
Mr Kachapin drummed up support for the new Jubilee party citing that the Jubilee government has done a lot in the country.
“They cannot see even a single thing the government has done. The standard gauge railway has been put up, electricity has been supplied and many irrigation projects have been started,” he said.
He asked the opposition to give the government time to deliver its promises, “Jubilee should be given time to work for Kenyans,” he said.
The sentiments were echoed by West Pokot deputy governor Titus Lotee, who accused the opposition of disrespecting the constitution.
“Jubilee respects the constitution but NASA is cheating Kenyans that they will share positions which are not in the constitution, like the Prime minister’s position. They should read and understand the constitution,” said Lotee.
He observed that Jubilee Party is united and has not chased its members as KANU.
