Kiambu Elected Leaders, Aspirants Endorse Alice But Demand The President’s Audience.

Ngewa MCA Karungo Wa Thang'wa talking to the press on behalf of Kiambu County Assembly members at La Mada Hotel where they endorse the appointment of Thika MP Alice Ng'ang'a to spearhead Jubilee campaigns in the region.
About 40 members of the Kiambu County Assembly (MCAs) and over 200 aspiring MPs and Senators from the entire county endorsed the appointment of Thika Town MP Alice Wambui Ng’ang’a as the region’s head of the Jubilee campaigns team in preparation for a crusade across the county to sell the Jubilee agenda, popularise the party at the grassroots level and ensure the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta for a second term.

Speaking on behalf of the Kiambu MCAs, Nominated Salome Wanjiku Kimata said that they had unanimously agreed to rally behind the Thika MP in spearheading the campaigns adding that her choice was well thought of.

They demanded an audience with President Uhuru Kenyatta in order to lay down the modalities in which they would engage the people at the grassroots.

“We the MCAs from your home county, wish to have a meeting you His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta and engage with you some of the things we really want to work together because for any success, it will call for our concerted efforts,” said Kimata.

She said that this engagement would ensure that everyone’s view was represented and the interests of ‘Wanjiku’ were well articulated in the agenda.

They also demanded to know the amount set aside as Jubilee nomination fees for each of the elective positions so as the candidates do not get ambushed with figures that they will be unable to raise.

Ngewa MCA Paul Karungo Thang’wa reaffirmed the group’s commitment towards the president’s re-election in 2017 and in extension, the election of his deputy William Samoei Ruto in 2022.

Thang’wa assured those who were jittery about the appointment of Alice to just give her their audience to realise that she meant well for everyone.

“We have spoken with her (Alice) and she has told us what we really need to know. To all dissenting voices, please come and listen to her and you will be surprised of her efforts to consolidate and put everybody together in a bid to speak in one voice,” said the Ngewa legislator.

On behalf of the aspirants, former Limuru MP Hon Peter Mwathi said that they had deliberated on how they would conduct peaceful campaigns and during the electioneering period.

“One of the agenda of this meeting was how as aspirants we are going to take the peace message to our people so that we don’t antagonise each other and how we are going to assist the country to heal without us as leaders engaging in hate speech or any tribal sentiments as we are all Kenyans and wouldn’t want our country to burn,” said Mwathi.

He added that there was consensus within those present that they would hold joint campaigns saying their priority was to first popularise the party before each one of them sought for their individual votes.

Hon. Njogu Mbarua who is spearheading the same campaigns in Kirinyaga County, assured the candidates that it was the president’s directive that every candidate was given a fair chance to try their bid. He said that similar exercises will be held in the entire republic to ensure that the president comfortably won the 2017 General Elections.

Hon David Kirahu (Nyandarua County) said that the exercise was a sign of great things ahead for the party.
Thika MP reminded the candidates that the party nominations will be administered by the IEBC to ensure fairness and transparency.

“No one should be worried about this exercise. IEBC will take control of everything to ensure that it is free and fair. Whoever will win will be our flag bearer and we shall all back them to ensure that Jubilee emerges the winner in 2017. We are one family and we should focus on only one fight,” said Alice.

The MP has clustered different cadres of leaders to create a sequence and strike an understanding between them with the intention of drawing the road map on how to embark on the Jubilee campaigns in the region.

On Friday, elected MCAs from Kiambu County and later aspiring candidates for all the elective posts to and deliberated on how they would create a synthesis so that whatever they did, they would do it as a team and with mutual understanding.
