- Governor Mvurya said the team has already come up with a strategy on how to increase Uhuru's votes.
- President Kenyatta’s 43,812 was a significant improvement from the 17,000 he got in 2013.
- Mr Mvurya vied on an ODM ticket in 2013 but switched allegiance to Jubilee about two years ago.
Jubilee politicians in Kwale County have kicked off campaigns for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election, promising to leave nothing to chance.
Governor Salim Mvurya, who is the team leader, Thursday said the President deserves a second term in office.
After a strategy meeting by Jubilee elected leaders and officials of affiliate parties at Kwale Cultural Centre, Mr Mvurya said the team “has what it takes to deliver votes for the President”.
“Kwale now boasts of tangible development projects like tarmac roads and the improvement of Shimoni port. These projects were spearheaded by President Kenyatta,” Mr Mshenga Ruga, a member of the team, said, adding that the county is no longer an opposition stronghold “as demonstrated by the re-election of Governor Mvurya on a Jubilee ticket”.
NOT ODM ZONE
A New Democrats Party official Salim Hawaa said Kwale County is no longer an Orange Democratic Movement zone “as purported by the local opposition leadership”.
