Today Jubilee party through its secretary General Raphael Tuju revealed the names of candidates that will vie for different seats in the coming by elections. Of importance to note is the wife to the Juja member of Parliament Francis Waititu, Susan Waititu who will vie on a Jubilee ticket.
This is not the first time that Kenyans have been treated to such cases where family members of late politicians are been fronted to vie for seats that their husbands, brothers, wives or family members left behind after dying. Other cases include Kibra were Okoth’ young brother took over and Homabay where Kajwang’s younger brother was also given a direct ticket.
This very culture should be discouraged with the strongest term possible because it seeks to block out other competent leaders and make it look like leadership is a family affair. Political parties should be discouraged from this behavior of rewarding family members of leaders who have succumbed.
