Jubilee woos Narok voters as NASA heads to Mandera

President Uhuru Kenyatta Tuesday leads the Jubilee Party on a vote hunting mission in Narok County.

The team is expected to meet the people in Narok town after which they will hold a rally in Narok Stadium. During the visit, the Head of State is expected to launch the Narok-Mau road at Kisiriri.

Meanwhile, the National Super Alliance brigade is Tuesday afternoon touring Mandera County in a vote hunting mission, with 27 days remaining to the August 8th elections.

The Raila Odinga led alliance is expected to take advantage of the split in the county’s top command to oust Jubilee from power, considering that in 2013, Mandera County boosted Uhuru Kenyatta camp with more than 90 percent of votes cast.

The National Super Alliance is at this hour pitching tent in Mandera County, as it intensifies its hunt for votes ahead of the August poll.

The Raila Odinga brigade is hopeful of garnering more votes in the forth coming elections based on their manifesto and questions that locals have posed to the ruling Jubilee government’s development scorecard in the region.

During the 2013 general election, Mandera County overwhelmingly voted for Jubilee with more than 90 percent of the votes cast.

Jubilee at the time won the Gubernatorial and senatorial seats and six parliamentary seats, including woman representative position.

However, the county top command has since split into different camps with incumbent Governor Ali Roba seeking re-election under Jubilee ticket while senator Billow Kerrow formed the Economic Freedom Party on whose ticket he is seeking re-election.

It is this split that NASA will be seeking to capitalize on to solidify its support base in the region. NASA has since promised to address challenges facing the marginalized communities should it ascend to power come August 8th.
