Top Lawyer Predicts The Worst For Uhuru's Party, Foresees a Weird Happening in 2022

Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi has mocked the ruling Jubilee Party, saying that it might turn into an embarrassment to its owners by the time the nation goes for the 2022 polls.

The party's fortunes have been dwindling lately, a situation members have blamed on the fallout between President Uhuru Kenyatta, the party boss, and his deputy William Ruto.

On Monday, Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru admitted that things are indeed wrong in the once invincible political outfit, suggesting that there is need to reenergize it if it is to survive.

The suggestions have attracted the attention of Ahmednasir, a self proclaimed 'revered member of Jubilee', who, however, is of the idea that the party has basically died already and cannot be revived.

For him, Kenyans should even be ready to witness the party send less members to Parliament that Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula's Ford Kenya in 2022.

"Reading the sentiments expressed by Gov 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!" he says in a tweet.

Waiguru, in her statement on social media, says that there is need for the Jubilee leadership to acknowledge that times have changed and are different and act in line with that fact.

She is calling for "new ways of thinking and doing", and wants the party modelled in such a manner that it projects the actual face of Kenya.

"We must also be pragmatic and reopen the sides and back of the tent for people to enter and reenter," says the county boss, a member of the party.

Her calls come a time when more members of Jubilee seem to be on their way out, majority ending up in Ruto's new UDA party.
