Politics in the Rift Valley have gained momentum with Jubilee Party burning its midnight oil to ensure that it remains the political supremo in the region.
On Monday, Leader of Majority in the National Assembly Aden Duale fired a warning to Kanu Chairman and Baringo Senator Gideon Moi that Jubilee is the party for the people of Rift Valley.
Duale told Moi that JP will conduct free and fair party primaries and he will not get an opportunity to poach any Jubilee politicians on grounds of flawed JP nominations.
“Chama Cha Jubilee, tutafanya sisi free and fair nominations. So Gideon Moi, you have no chance there, I can tell you particularly in Rift Valley,” said Duale during the burial of veteran politician Mark Too in Kapseret.
He added: “Kama unafikiri utapata sisi tunafanya ukora kwa nomination alafu wewe upenye upate mjumbe mmoja, chama cha Kanu haitapata kiti kwa sababu tutapatia watu wetu ile nafasi ya kuchagua viongozi wao.”
Duale’s warning to Moi comes in the wake of rising forces of opposition for Jubilee in the region with Kanu being among the political outfits that are suppressing Jubilee’s glory.
Kanu enjoys unrivalled support in Baringo and West Pokot counties.
Chama Cha Mashinani led by Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto has also forced Jubilee to make inroads in the rift to secure mass support ahead of August 8 general elections.
