Wamama na Uhuru outfit in Kitui has come out to protest against alleged discrimination and intimidation by Jubilee Party front-runners in the county.
Led by their chairperson Esther Kalunda Ndile, the pro-President Uhuru Kenyatta caucus yesterday vowed that they will seek the intervention of the Head of State and his deputy William Ruto should the trend persist.
Ms. Ndile is also the only Jubilee Party’s nominated member of the Kitui County Assembly.
The women unanimously accused Jubilee leaders in the county of sidelining them when conducting Jubilee campaign meetings and rallies.
They have absolutely pushed us aside despite our firm resolve to seek votes for President Kenyatta ahead of the Supreme Court-ordered presidential election re-run slated for October 26, said Ms. Ndile, while addressing the press in Kitui Town.
She however declared that they will neither be cowed nor be intimidated into relinquishing their support for Uhuru and Ruto.
Ndile went on to lament that their drive to deliver Kitui votes to UhuRuto has not been easy especially given that the county is predominantly loyal to the Opposition NASA (National Super Alliance).
They further warned the County Commissioner Boaz Cherutich to stop interfering with their operations, alleging that the administrator was responsible for continued divisive approach which has caused unnecessary ripples within the operations of the well-intended outfit.
