The secretary general for Jubilee Party Jeremiah Kioni today on Friday 12th August lost his temper and blasted at a journalist after the journalist asked him to address them in Kikuyu vernacular language.
While speaking during a press briefing at the Jubilee party headquarters on Friday the 12th of August, Kioni who seemed angry claimed that the calls by journalists to have them (the leaders) address them in vernacular were part of the reasons as to why Azimio la Umoja performed dismally in the Mount Kenya region in the 2022 general elections.
Kioni noted that most of the issues addressed during the press conferences were of national importance and speaking in vernacular would be as good as tribalising the whole exercise.
However he addressed on the much anticipated presidential election results, expressing his confidence that the Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate, Raila Odinga, would emerge victorious.
He further opined that the vote-rich mountain region will now have to be content with being in opposition. This is after a majority of Member of Parliament were elected under the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ticket.
