Ndaragwa Member of Parliament Jeremiah Kioni Concedes Defeat

Ndaragwa Member of Parliament and Jubilee Party candidate Jeremiah Kioni has conceded defeat. Hon Kioni who was seeking to win a new term in office but seemed to have been trounced by his UDA rival Hon George Gachagua. In a statement posted on his Twitter account this afternoon, Hon Kioni has acknowledged and congratulated the new MP elect while thanking Ndaragwa voters for having given him an opportunity to serve them.

Hon. Jeremiah Kioni seems to have been one of the casualties of mass rebellion against his Jubilee Party in Mount Kenya Region. Kioni has served Ndaragwa Constituency as a Member of Parliament since 2007. During what has now proven to be his last term, Kioni has been the chairman of the Constitutional Implementation Oversight Committee in the National Assembly. Hon Jeremiah Kioni is currently the Secretary General of the weakened Jubilee Party.

As the Jubilee Party Secretary General, Hon Kioni has been a strong supporter of the Azimio a Umoja Presidential candidate Raila Odinga. Raila's win could be a relief to the legislator who perhaps could be considered for a position in the Azimio government. Kioni is one of the few legislators from Mount Kenya Region who have remained loyal to President Uhuru Kenyatta.
