Nyandarua Governor Francis Kimemia is allegedly ferrying youths to storm Jubilee headquarter demanding he is given the direct ticket.
He is facing off with well-established and worthy competitor Sicily Kariuki who was serving in Uhuru’s administration but later resigned.
According to a reliable source, Kimemia hasn’t been comfortable battling for nomination and thus he opted to use his networks and stop the exercise.
Today is the last day for the party to conduct a nomination and thereafter if anyone hasn’t joined any party will be forced to contest as an independent candidate.
“Francis Kimemia is allegedly ferrying youths to protest outside Jubilee office demanding that he be awarded another chance while those on the ground are supporting the nomination of Sicily Kariuki,” Source said.
Attempt to reach out governor failed as he didn’t pick up our calls.
Also, Former Minister and Kimemia competitor Sicily Kariuki didn’t answer our calls but sources close to her indicate that she is determined to go all the way to the ballot.
He said that the ground has been very supportive of her and she is the only candidate who can face off with the UDA candidate.
UDA candidate is also supported by Chama Cha Kazi party leader Moses Kuria after speaker Ndegwa Wahome allegedly stepped down for him.
“Watu kwa ground Wako na mama Sicily and even Kimemia understand it but he is trying to corrupt his way and be given a direct ticket but will oppose the move, he said.
About two months ago, Sicily Kariuki took about 100 artists to Jubilee headquarters where they declared support for her and for the party.
They have been traversing the County supporting her candidature.
