Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant Peter Kenneth has lashed out at Jubilee Party critics, telling them that they will not get an opportunity to rig him out like they did during the party primaries in April.
Speaking while on a campaign trail to Makadara Constituency in Nairobi, the former Gatanga Member of Parliament said that he was is happy that he was rigged out in the Jubilee nominations because he would now easily clinch the coveted seat without being affiliated to any political outfit.
“I thank God they did that so that I may leave the Jubilee party, I am now more comfortable to seek this seat as an independent candidate,” he said.
Kenneth says that the outcome of the primaries that were marred by irregularities, gave him an opportunity to fish supporters from all major political parties. “I'm an independent candidate with an independent mind and therefore my supporters are free to elect a president of their choice,” he said
Kenneth suffered defeat in the hands of Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko in the Jubilee primaries, and has since accused Deputy President William Ruto of being the mastermind behind his loss to Sonko.
“This time round there will be no hired voters who will be ferried from one polling station to another to vote someone as they did during the Jubilee party nominations. We will face off with one another in the elections and I am confident I will win the elections,” Kenneth said.
The aspirant urged his supporters to ignore those claiming that his candidature was meant to split votes of a particular candidate, adding that his quest is to serve the city. “Those telling my people that they should not divide votes must know that people will choose a leader of their choice,” he said.
