More than 5,000 New Ford Kenya (NFK) delegates from Trans-Nzoia County are converging in Kitale to endorse their party’s merger with TNA, URP, among others.
The meeting comes barely a week after a similar one in Webuye that brought together thousands of Bungoma County delegates where there was a unanimous agreement to merge NFK with TNA and URP.
While addressing the delegates, NFK Chairman Trans-Nzoia County Joshua Werunga observed that the meeting was a historic start. “We are going to build a permanent house to accommodate all of us who are development-focused,” said Mr Werunga.
TNA and URP officials present told the delegates that they were already on their way to breaking their respective parties to form the proposed new outfit, Jubilee Party.
Two weeks ago, NFK NEC meeting held in Nairobi gave a nod for the merger of the party in a bid to up development in the country. “So far, the journey has been good, and people-needs oriented. This will be a top-league political game,” observed Mr Werunga.
Present in the meeting are NFK Party Leader and Bungoma County Governor Ken Lusaka, Water Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa, Bungoma Women Representative Reginalda Wanyonyi, several MPs, MCAs, party delegates, among others.
