And finally the race to 2017 general election in Kenya has smelled. Over the past years, the trend is that towards general elections there are lots of manipulations ranging from the manipulation of citizens to the manipulation of politicians themselves to belong to a particular party in order to win the hearts of ‘their people’. This is evident mostly at a time like this whereby politicians and mostly the Members of Parliament (MPs) have sleepless nights trying to ‘suit the system’.
September 10th 2016 marked the day for a one talk among the parties that formed the jubilee party. The merger to form JAP (Jubilee Alliance Party) at the Kasarani gymnasium left many politicians and the Kenyan citizens mesmerized of the unity the party officials portrayed by coming together. All this is targeted at retaining the positions at the 2017 general elections.
However, the opposition; CORD is of great resistance to the merger claiming that even though the government is poaching some of its
members enticing them with money and positions in the government, they’ll fight to the end to liberate this nation’ Kenya from ‘corruption’ and bad representation.
