Jubilee Party held a presser that brought together Garissa Town MP Aden Duale and Sec-Gen Raphael Tuju and Vice-Chair David Murathe.

The trio fell out since Duale is a strong ally of Deputy President Willam Ruto and the two are staunch believers in the gospel of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

During the presser held in Jubilee Party's Headquarters in Pangani, Duale said the party will be coming together to field candidates in three upcoming by-elections.

The party handed Abdul Haji the ticket to vie for the Garissa seat noting that the move was unopposed. He is the son of the late Senator Yusuf Haji and brother to DPP Noordin Haji.


Abdul Haji might be the first member of the Kenyan senate to be elected unopposed. Politicians drawn from the North-Eastern region wanted the late Senator Yusuf Haji's son to take over the Senatorial mandate.

Led by Garissa governor Ali Korane Korane and Eldas MP Aden Keynan the politicians said that the best honour they can give to the late senator was electing his son to complete the remaining term left by his late father.

Previously Duale was part of the UDA Party brigade that was trying to knock out Jubilee and other major political parties in scheduled by-elections.

Duale noted that the Jubilee family was coming together to support Abdul Haji for the Garissa Senatorial seat.

Murathe also announced that Jubilee is in a coalition with Wiper and KANU parties and they will also be supporting Jubilee's candidates in upcoming by-elections.
