Homa Bay MP Peter Kaluma has called on President Uhuru Kenyatta to stamp his authority over the loss of Jubilee in the recent Kiambaa by-election.
According to the Homa Bay MP, President Uhuru should not sit back and be ridiculed while he is still in power.
“No leader allows anyone direct access and influence over his people while he reigns! President Uhuru Kenyatta must stop being too good, separate his enemies and destroy them or go down in shame!” the Homa Bay MP wrote on his Twitter page.
The call by Homa Bay MP is influenced by Jubilee’s consequent losses in by-elections within the Mt Kenya region.
Before their defeat in Kiambaa, the ruling party had lost the Juja constituency and Rurii ward by-elections.
His opinion comes at a time when the Jubilee Party leadership also seeks to prove DP Ruto’s UDA wrong by protesting John Njuguna’s win in the Kiambaa polls.
In a press conference on Monday, July 19, Jubilee Vice-Chair David Murathe expressed his dissatisfaction with Kariri Njama’s defeat in the July 15 Kiambaa by-elections.
“We are not satisfied with IEBC’s results; we have concrete evidence to show that manipulation was done by certain individuals.
The numbers that came out of the polling centres were not the same as those transmitted to the tallying centres. It is not yet over,” said Murathe.
The Jubilee Vice-chair also cleared the air on claims that the party had spent Ksh 300 Million for the campaigns in Kiambaa constituency.
“There is a lot of fake news and propaganda by people keen to see blood and they want to see Jubilee fighting, they want to see blame game. Be very careful with fake news, like I read somewhere that the team on the ground was given Sh300 million. There was nothing like that,” he said.
Murathe addressed the press after the party’s NMC held a meeting with a team of legislators who were in charge of the Kiambaa campaigns.
