Kenyatta’s Jubilee Party has suffered yet another severe political blow six
months to the August 8th General Elections.
This is after
another top MP from the party defected to the Opposition from where he will
seek to oust Samuel Tunai as Narok Governor.
Narok West MP,
Patrick Ole Ntutu, who was elected on Deputy President William Ruto’s URP Party
in the 2013 elections, defected to Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto’s Chama Cha
Mashinani (CCM) that is associated with former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s
National Super Alliance (NASA).
Speaking during his
defection, Ntutu cited Jubilee Party’s unfairness ahead of the April primaries.
He said he will
work with all other MPs in the area like Johana Ng’eno who have since defected
from Jubilee to the Opposition.
“As it seems, the
Jubilee house in Narok is full. I have already quit Jubilee to join Ng’eno and
Governor Isaac Ruto to form our party that is expected to field Parliamentary
candidates and elect new Narok Governor,” said Ntutu.
