Jubilee Party leaders in the Rift Valley and the Mount Kenya regions are in a race to find some 1.7 million voters who did not vote during the August 8 elections and get them to vote on the October 26.
Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago said they hope to rope in the voters to give President Uhuru Kenyatta a more emphatic win that will leave no room for anyone to dispute.
Speaking during a day-long campaign tour of Nyeri County, the Governor who is leading one of the party’s regional campaign teams said this time round, they want to increase the margin of President Uhuru’s victory by more than three million votes.
Mandago was accompanied by Baringo Governor, Stanley Kiptis, Nyeri Senator Ephraim Maina, Members of Parliament Kanini Kega, Rigathi Gachagua, Cecily Mbarire, Mary Mbugua, Robert Pukose and Nyeri Deputy Governor Mutahi Kahiga.
They urged residents to turn up in large numbers to vote for President Kenyatta whose victory during the August 8 elections was annulled by the Supreme Court of Kenya due to faults in the transmission system and other irregularities.
The leaders urged residents to reject the politics of endless demonstrations and destruction of property saying events in recent times had shown that the opposition lacked an agenda for the country.
