Embu Senator, Lenny Kivuti, who is eyeing the Embu Governor’s seat, mobilized his supporters to ditch Jubilee party. This is after he made claims that some jubilee members have already settled on Runyenjes lawmaker Cecily Mbarire to fly the party’s flag.
This prompted him to move to Maendeleo Chap Chap movement that is headed by the Machakos Governor Dr. Alfred Mutua. The Senator’s decision was made Saturday, February 4 after consulting 1,200 grassroot leaders on a meeting at his Kanyuambora home.
The Senator’s exit indeed marks the political undercurrents in the county. This comes in despite the President’s assurances that the Jubilee primaries will be free and fair.
