The governing Jubilee Party is still grieving after suffering to a lifetime humbling in the 3 by-elections which were concluded yesterday in which, president Kenyatta's party failed to clinch a single seat.
In Bonchari, Jubilee's candidate Zebedeo Opore emerged as the 1st runners up in a contest that was won by Paul Oimeke of ODM. In Juja, PEP candidate George Koimburi trounced Jubilee's Susan Waititu while in Rurii ward in Nyandarua, UDA carried the day.
The dismal performance seems to have forced Jubilee party back to the drawing board in regards to the upcoming by-elections in Kiambaa constituency and Muguga ward.
In statement issued by Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju, the party has asked those seeking to become Jubilee's flag bearers in the said elections to present themselves in person for interviews to the party headquarters on 22nd of May 2021.
Reacting to this news, Murang'a senator Irungu Kang'ata has suggested that it shall not end well for the ruling party in the upcoming elections.
"In preparation to forthcoming by-elections, now this is the remedy for the many defeats suffered by our dear party recently in various by-elections? Jumping from a frying pan into Fire. Wah, okay!," penned Kang'ata.
