The dwindling fortunes of the ruling Jubilee party continue to wreck havoc especially among the people who used to have a great support for the party in the past.
This fact has since been echoed by the famous lawyer Ahmednasir Mohamed in his latest analysis of the state of affairs in the Jubilee party.
According Ahmednasir Mohamed, if the turbulent waves continue to hit the Jubilee camp the way it has been hitting it in the recent times then there are possibilities that Jubilee will lose a lot even in terms of representation in the parliament.
Evidently, in a rather sarcastic manner the lawyer seemed to have been insinuating that Jubilee will at one time be compared to Ford Kenya if things don’t change. Ford Kenya for instance is a party with only one senator and a few MPs.
“Reading the sentiments expressed by Governor Anne Waiguru on the dwindling fortunes of my beloved Jubilee brought to my mind a troubling but germane question: which party between Jubilee and Ford Kenya will have more MPS in parliament come 2022? The answer is too obvious,” twitted Ahmednasir.
It will be remembered that Ahmednasir has represented Jubilee in more than one election petitions and that he has always confessed to be a great follower of the party’s ideals. Just what went wrong?
The problems in Jubilee party can be traced back to about three years ago when the ODM leader Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta called truce and decided to work together under the proverbial handshake.
From that time a section of Jubilee leaders became disgruntled and started going against the party’s positions and at times even openly endorsing other candidates in by-elections. Most of them have in the recent times been showing a great support for the UDA party.
Well, the Kenyan party politics is always about creation of marriages of convenience. It is very different from those of the developed democracies where people follow the ideals of the party.
