This move has elicited mixed reaction online with a section of political analysts claiming that the union was dead on arrival since Jubilee is already in 'pieces' while ODM is still in political commitments with Nasa constituent parties.
Speaking on TV 47 on Monday, Lawyer Karoli Kipchumba stated that a political party is the people who make the party and not an empty entity, claiming that Jubilee had more of its members outside compared to those inside, hence it is of no help to the ODM and more so Raila Odinga.
"Jubilee has retrogressed in to minimal levels, ODM should not merge with the party since it does not have the national support it had before. The party has even lost by-elections in its backyard, ODM should therefore ask themselves of what gain will they get from Jubilee," said Kipchumba.
Kipchumba went on to claim that the president is not concerned with the country's politics, and is working to put up with his service delivery to Kenyans before he retires next year.
