Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has become the latest leader in Jubilee to call for party changes ahead of the 2022 General Election.
Waiguru posted through her Facebook account on Monday that, “The rains have beaten us. Our fortunes are dwindling. Intense introspection is demanded.”
She said that the party carries the dreams and aspirations of many Kenyans and that it was built on the strengths of many.
“The Jubilee Party carries the dreams and aspirations of many Kenyans. It was built on the strengths of many. The party became what it was because of it’s diverse and broad support base.
The governor said that as the country continues to muscle for the next election, the party must recognise that it is operating in a new context far different from 10 years ago.
“As we head to 2022 we must recognize that the Party is now operating in a new context far different from 10 years ago. We have a much younger generation dominating the electorate. Our outlook and strategies must suit the times and so we must be willing to step off our comfort zones and embrace new ways of thinking and doing. We need a reenergized Jubilee that projects the face of Kenya in all its diversities.” She said
According to the governor, the two-term ruling party should reopen both the sides and back of the tent for people to enter and re-enter.
She added that; “A lot of futures are tied to the fate of the party and we must restore its vision, glory and stature or contend with predictable consequences.”
