Jubilee Party officials on Monday met at the party headquarters in Pangani, Nairobi, hot on the heels of the disappointing loss to UDA in the recently concluded following the Kiambaa by-election.
The meeting comes after criticism from a section of Jubilee MPs, who accused top party officials of not doing enough to strengthen the party.
Vice chairperson David Murathe said the party was dissatisfied with the manner in which the IEBC conducted the polls.
Murathe alleged he has evidence there was manipulation of votes.
“We are not satisfied with what IEBC did to our candidate. When you are not satisfied with the results and you want a recount, they cannot refuse to give you a recount,” he said.
“The numbers that came out from the polling stations were not the same numbers that came to the tallying center. And we have concrete evidence.”
The meeting arrived at a time when disgruntled members want ejection of the current party leadership and a fresh youthful leadership injected into the party.
This as their United Democratic Alliance (UDA) rivals were bullish claiming the Jubilee party was dead in Central Kenya.
Following a streak of losses for the president’s party in his own backyard, the Jubilee party now finds itself in what has become a familiar territory, a blame game.
A section of its MPs are now demanding a radical surgery and purge of its current leadership as the only remedy to salvage its dwindling fortunes.
“I think the only challenge we have with Jubilee is we have people who talk recklessly, people who give our party a bad name, then when it comes to looking for votes you don’t see them on the ground,” said Murang’a Woman Rep. Sabina Chege.
