The Jubilee Party will not be fielding candidates in the upcoming by-elections in Matungu, Kabuchai, and Machakos.
The three seats were previously held by the opposition. Tuju said Jubilee enjoyed cordial relations with some of the parties that were fielding candidates in the three elections cautioning that joining the race would create unnecessary conflict.
Jubilee Secretary-General Raphael Tuju however, said that the party will field a candidate for Nairobi Governor if the polls take place.
Tuju also dismissed accusations that he leaked the controversial letter by Senate Majority Whip Irungu Kang’ata saying it was not in his character to do so.
Deputy Majority Leader of the Senate Fatuma Dullo clarified there were no plans to oust Kang’ata.
