Jubilee Now Cancels All Nominations Nationwide, Frustrated Aspirants Threaten to Defect

Jubilee Party has now called off nominations in all counties in Kenya.

Jubilee secretary general Raphael Tuju issued the orders to stop voting and tallying of votes in the 21 counties where the process was ongoing. The first day of Jubilee nominations was marked by widespread confusion, inadequate ballot papers, burning of ballot papers by angry voters, and claims of attempted rigging.

 A new date for the nominations will be announced on Saturday, Tuju said. Tuju had earlier cancelled nominations in 11 counties, namely Baringo, Bomet, Elgeyo Marakwet, Embu, Kajiado, Kericho, Nakuru, Nandi, Narok, Trans Nzoia, and Uasin Gishu.

Tuju apologized to all voters and aspirants affected by the mess, taking responsibility for the chaos. “I will take responsibility for the mess. These things took place under my watch. I will work to ensure our supporters get a chance to elect the leaders they prefer to fly Jubilee's flag.”

Some aspirants have threatened to defect from the party, saying the confusion was meant to rig them out.
