Keep off Starehe politics – Maina Kamanda tells Tuju
Starehe Member of Parliament, Maina Kamanda, has launched a scathing attack on the Jubilee Party Secretariat saying that there is a plot to rig him out after he was controversially declared winner of Starehe’s party primaries on Thursday, April 27.
Musician Charles Kanyi, alias Jaguar, contested the nomination results that saw him lose to Kamanda, insisting that he was the authentic winner after provisional results had shown that the MP was trailing him by a substantive number of votes.
The Jubilee Appeals Tribunal had earlier on ruled that both parties should engage in discussions to solve the issue amicably, but is expected to issue a final ruling Tuesday, April 2.
The veteran politician has in particular warned Jubilee Party Secretary General, Rafael Tuju, against what he terms as ‘interfering with Starehe nomination results’.
“Tuju should stay away from Starehe constituency politics. Even the former Secretary General, Onyango Oloo, did a good work compared to him. Jubilee should not favor anyone,” said Kamanda.
However, the MP who will be facing ODM’s nominee, Steve Mbogo, in the coming August Polls in a bid to retain his seat, admitted that the exercise was marred with electoral irregularities including non-Jubilee members voting and voter importation.
