Winner of Kabete by-election results: Jubilee Alliance Party -JAP’s Ferdinand Waititu votes update

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s preferred political party — JAP — scored two victories Monday when its candidates won the Kabete parliamentary and the Oloolua civic seats.

Mr Ferdinand Waititu, the Jubilee Alliance Party candidate, won in Kabete with a landslide, making a comeback in the National Assembly. In the tenth Parliament, he had represented Embakasi Constituency in Nairobi.

Mr Waititu, who trounced his opponents after garnering 24,228 votes, was not a registered voter in the Kabete Constituency and withered numerous challenges, including court cases seeking to block his candidature.

He now succeeds Mr George Muchai, who was shot dead by gangsters as he drove with his bodyguards in Nairobi in February. At least six people have been charged in connection with his death.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has been promoting JAP as the party under whose ticket he will be seeking to recapture the presidency in the next elections.

At the weekend, Deputy President William Ruto asked the leaders of the United Republican Party (URP) of which he is the leader, to drum up support for JAP in the Rift Valley.
