"We Shall Revisit" Trouble in Jubilee as Bitter Governor Protests Senate Nomination

The ruling Jubilee party has settled on Isaac Ngugi to be the new nominated senator representing the youth. Ngugi will replace the late senator Victor Prengei who succumbed to a fatal road accident. Ngugi hails from Nyandarua county.

However, this nomination by Jubilee party has sharply divided the members of the party. Some have said that the position was reserved for the minority communities and therefore it would be better if Prengei's replacement was a person from the Ogiek community.

Among those who have come out publicly to dispute this nomination is the Nakuru Governor, Lee Kinyanjui. Lee has said that the Ogiek community who reside in Nakuru county should have been gifted with the nomination slot. He has gone ahead to warn the Jubilee party officials that they will be revisiting.

"We are tired of witnessing the continued reckless action by a few people, who have personalized the management of a party that belongs to it's members. In the meantime, we respect your decision but we assure you that we shall revisit soon," read part of a statement by Governor Lee.

Below is a screenshot showing the full statement by the Nakuru Governor.

Jubilee party has been facing a lot of troubles in the recent past. Party officials at Pangani have been accused of dictatorship and chest thumping. This has led to mass exodus of some members as they seek refuge in other parties.

This reaction by the Nakuru Governor is a clear sign that the situation in the party is worsening. More politicians are likely to ditch the party.
