While Jubilee Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni insists that the recently held General Election was highly compromised, some of the poll losers appear to have started enjoying life outside the parliament building.
On of such who is enjoying life as an ordinary citizen is former Kieni Member of Parliament Kanini Kega.
Kioni, in a statement on Thursday, September 29, said he was enjoying picking up his son from school, something he could not afford while still a sitting MP.
“Picking my son from school, a rare thing I could afford to do when I was a sitting MP!” Kanini Kega said.
Kega defied all odds in the 2017 polls becoming the only legislator in the six Nyeri County constituencies to be re-elected after garnering 66,203 votes.
In the build-up to the August 9, General Election, Kega had expressed optimism about clinching the seat for the third straight time.
However, in the August, elections, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) declared Kanini Kega’s bitter rival Shadrack Mwiti the Member of Parliament-elect for Kieni Constituency.
Unlike Jeremiah Kioni and others who had protested the results, Kega was among the first to concede defeat.
“Opening a new chapter, when one door closes another one is opened. Heading to Bomas,” he said.
Kega was one of the harshest critics of President
Earlier this year, he challenged the then-deputy President to exit government and focus on popularising his political outfit United Democratic Alliance (UDA ).
