Mt. Kenya leaders to decide on independent candidates

Jubilee nominee for Manyatta parliamentary seat in Embu County John Muchiri has disclosed that Jubilee Party legislators in Mt. Kenya Region are set to issue a political communique soon, distancing themselves and the region from activities of candidates vying for seats as independent.

Muchiri gave all indications that the leaders are set to move round the region to drum-up support for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s party and disowning of self styled independent candidates.

The nominee who was cleared on Friday said that those claiming to be Independent candidates are in essence their competitors in Jubilee.

You are either with us or against us, he said, adding the party spent millions of shillings during the nomination process and therefore beats reason why independents chose to betray the party principles after losing the nomination.

The process of IEBC clearance in Embu County was successfully concluded with all candidates unveiling their schedules for campaigns.
