Jubilee Alliance was shocked by the low turnout in a series of rallies held on Saturday in Kwale County. Kwale is home to URP supremoÂ Chirau Makware.
The natives of Kwale County have raised concerns previously touching on land related issues. They are anti Jubilee due to what they see as the alliance’s inability ab initio to effectively implement land reforms.
“Uhuru hawezi implementi lendi reforms hapa Pwani sababu yeye ni beneficiary, sisi hatuna kandideti kwa hii uchaguzi lakini wezetu watakaopiga kura tunawazii kupigia wanaCORD kwani wao ni nafuu kidogo” Hamisi JafferÂ MRC member said on phone.
Kwale is home to the Mombasa Republican Council (MRC) an illegal group that is leading a campaign to secede from Kenya alleging historical land injustices that were perpetrated by Jomo Kenyatta the founding president and father to Jubilee Alliance Presidential candidate Uhuru Kenyatta.
