Setback To Kang'ata and UDA Party as Rival Competitor Holds Huge Rallies in Murang'a

The weather in the country is slowly turning to be politically hot. This is mainly due to the heightened campaigns which are driven by politicians who are yearning for various elective seats in the August polls.

Going by the latest surveys and opinion polls, UDA party has been termed as the most popular political party in the entire Mt Kenya region. There are higher possibilities that the yellow party may scoop a good number of seats in the region.

In the Murang'a gubernatorial seat, senator Irungu Kang'ata has always been seen as a front runner. He enjoys support and has an upper hand in the UDA party.

However, things seem to have started taking a different turn after Kang'ata's main competitor attracted huge crowds during his meet the people tour on Sunday.

Former Kigumo MP, Jamleck Kamau, held political rallies in Makuyu area of Maragua constituency. Hundreds of people turned up and promised to support his gubernatorial bid.

During the 2017 election, Kamau vied against the current governor Mwangi Wairia and he emerged a close second. Jamleck has revealed that he will not join UDA or Jubilee parties. He said that he will use a small party that will not conduct nominations.

With the intensed campaigns launched by Jamleck Kamau, it will not be a walk in the park for senator Irungu Kang'ata and the UDA party.
