United Democratic Alliance party seems to bow down to Jubilee party pressure. This is after the secretary general, Veronica Maina, sent a message that can be interpreted to mean that. The much awaited Kiambaa by-election is expected in a few days. There have been supremacy battle between the president and his deputy in terms of party representations.
Jubilee political party which is led by Uhuru Kenyatta has a strong candidate by the name Kariri Njama. On the other hand, Dr William Ruto's UDA party has a powerful contestant. According to a report shared by the Standard newspaper, madam Veronica has told their supporters that they are aware of Njama's capacity. She pointed out that Kariri is a worthy opponent. She however assured the team that they will do their best to deliver the seat.
This comes after it was reported that the said Jubilee candidate has won over 70 percent of the region's votes. This was reported by Kieni Member of Parliament Hon Kanini Kega. He is a close friend of the president and a Jubilee chief campaigner.
