The giant Jubilee Party is facing very stiff competition from United Democratic Party(UDA) allied to DP Dr.Wiliam Samoei Ruto in the Kiambaa by elections.Legislators allied to DP, Dr.Ruto have continued to drum and campaign for their candidate,Hon.Njuguna tirelessly.They have vowed that UDA party will teach Jubilee Party a lesson in the hard way by Hon.Njuguna outsmarting Hon.Kariri Njama.
On the other hand, legislators of Jubilee Party have maintained their stand that Hon.Kariri Njama is the best candidate to clinch the seat.They have stood firm and bold as they campaign so as to thrash UDA party come 15/07/2021.Jubilee legislators led by Nyeri Town MP.Wambugu Ngunjiri have made it pretty clear that Jubilee is still a giant and rulling party.
UDA Party has always given Jubilee Party a migraine especially in some of the by-elections that have conducted.
In Rurii Ward,UDA's candidate-Hon.Francis Muraya- clinched the seat by beating Jubilee's candidate,Hon.Peter Thinji who managed only 3143votes while Hon.Muraya bagged 4303 votes.
DP,Dr.Ruto has not only given headache to Jubilee Party but also ODM.In Msambweni by election, DP threw his weight behind the Independent Candidate,Hon Feisal Badar, who managed to clinch the seat by beating ODM's candidate,Hon.Boga despite that Msambweni is ODM's stronghold.
By looking at all these,the DP is very confident and optimistic that Hon.Njuguna will beat Hon.Njama.
Some of the legislators have started blaming their colleagues of planning to cause chaos during the long awaited day.
"We know that we have comped our areas and have numbers.But our competitors are planning to cause havoc and even import people from other areas."Hon.Kanini Kega(MP.Kieni)
"We know of a CAS who has been collecting goons in Muthurwa market to come and disrupt elections in Kiambaa and we want to ask the Inspector General of police that this is in your shoulders."Hon.Ichungwa(MP.Kikuyu)
IEBC chairman-Hon.Wafula Chebukati-made it pretty clear during his visit to Kiambu County Commissioner's office that all preparations for the by-election have been done in a super manner.He went on further to promise that the commission shall be assisted by other stakeholders mainly being the county administration and especially the security so as to ensure that the election is done as required by the law.
"No attempts to take pictures.This will not be entertained in the polling stations.We request voters to comply."Hussein Marjan,CEO-IEBC.
