In Summary

  • The card has a unique bar code that will capture the member's details including name, identity card number and phone numbers.

Jubilee aspirants and supporters have launched a smart card the party terms as a one-stop solution to the membership list and headaches associated with primaries.

President Uhuru Kenyatta led the function attended by his Deputy William Ruto, a host of sitting governors, senators, MPs and MCAs at the Kasarani Gymnasium in Nairobi.

The aspirants and elected leaders sported Jubilee colours, red and yellow, and are waving the party's flag.

SECURITY TIGHT

Many complained of a painstakingly long and thorough security screening at the gate of the venue.

President Kenyatta and Mr Ruto urged all Jubilee aspirants to sell the party, recruit members and deliver votes.

The President sought to address fears that he and Mr Ruto favour some aspirants gunning for the party's tickets, saying he recognises all of them as Jubilee members.

"In here, we don't have president, deputy president, governor, senator, MP or MCA. We are all Jubilee members," he said.

NASA VOW

"I don't recognise William Kabogo or Ferdinand Waititu... I don't recognise Johnson Sakaja, Mike Sonko or Margaret Wanjiru... they are all members of Jubilee and that is what matters," he added.
