On Tuesday, little known People Empowerment Party (PEP) shocked many after its candidate Goerge Kiomburi emerged victorious against Susan Njeri of the ruling Jubilee Party.
PEP which is led Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, a close ally to Deputy President William Ruto, floored Jubilee party on Uhuru's home turf sending a huge warning ahead of the next by-election in Kiambaa proving that the hustlers nation is slowly taking over.
However speaking to the People Daily on Friday, Jubilee party secretary general Raphael Tuju revealed that will not be allowed to happen in next one as he came clean on Ruto's big statement in Juja and Rurii.
According to Tuju, he accepts that they lost saying that by-elections are always not easy for the ruling party as he acknowledged that Jubilee has learnt from their mistake.
"We lost. We acknowledge that we lost. We shall learn from the mistake we may have committed and correct what we think may have gone not gone well. In any case, Jubilee like any other party can win or lose in an election," said Tuju.
The President's party is set to carry out its nomination tomorrow to find out who will fly their ticket in the July 15th by-elections in Kiambaa.
