Democratic Party (DP) founded by former President Mwai Kibaki has fielded a candidate to challenge JAP candidate in Kabete constituency.
Residents of Kabete may once again upset JAP like Kajiado Central as a real but silent opposition to the formation of JAP continue to expose President Uhuru’s poor political handlers ahead of 2017.
Already, political scientist Mutahi Ngunyi has warned Uhuru that he risks plunging the country into turmoil by losing the 2017 elections due to incompetence in campaigns.
Kiriro wa Ngugi, the Democratic Party candidate, has warned central Kenya of attempts to recreate a one party state under JAP.
Ngugi cautioned residents of Kabete that JAP, which is a merger of URP and TNA will kill the regions democratic gains through retrogressive politics.
Ngugi said Kabete people should be given the chance to choose from many candidates vying on various parties.
He said the constituents should not be “forced” to elect the JAP candidate on the basis that the party is affiliated with the President.
“The merger of parties will push away good and credible leaders and take Kabete people back to the era of one-party politics, which is retrogressive,” Kiriro said.
