Jubilee party sacrificed Bahati’s candidature to save it’s relationship with ODM : Kanini Kega reveals
Jubilee Party Chief National Election Officer Kanini Kega explained why they were forced to return the Kevin Bahati Mathare certificate he was given, giving him a direct ticket to be on the 2022 ballot papers as a candidate for the Union Declaration.
According to Kanini, they relinquished their seat based on their relationship with the ODM party, thinking that the constituency was largely set aside for the Raila Odinga party affiliated “ODM contacted us to ask why we decided to field a candidate.
“The parliamentary constituency, which was established as an ODM stronghold, said they already had Mathare candidate, incumbent Anthony Oluoch, who would be defending his seat, so we had to stop running,” Kega explained.
ODM and Jubilee have worked together to see Mr. Raila Odinga win the 2022 presidential election in the next election.
