President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee Party is eyeing at least two governors and 20 Members of Parliament in the former western province, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has said.
Speaking on Wednesday when he made a series of stopovers in Vihiga County to drum up support for the re-election of President Kenyatta, Mr Kuria who heads the Mbele iko sawa’ campaign caravan also said Jubilee was confident of getting two Senate seats from the Luhya nation.
According to him, in spite of inroads by the National Super Alliance (Nasa), his ruling party was gaining support in the region by explaining what they stand for.
“We started in Busia on Monday, we were in Kakamega on Tuesday, today we are here in Vihiga and tomorrow (Friday) we will be in Trans Nzoia,” said Mr Kuria.
He added: “We are going everywhere. Kenya is open to all of us. We come with the message of progress and real development,” he said.
He was accompanied by Bungoma Governor Ken Lusaka and Kakamega Jubilee governorship candidate Mabel Muruli.
The MP addressed a series of rallies in Luanda, Esibuye, Majengo, Mbale, Chavakali, Mudete and Shamakhokho, all of which are in Vihiga County, the backyard of Amani National Congress (ANC) leader and founder member of Nasa, Musalia Mudavadi.
Governor Lusaka is seeking re-election through Jubilee while Ms Muruli is fighting for the Kakamega Governorship currently held by ODM deputy party leader Wycliffe Oparanya.
