Wamalwa, who has in the past denied talk that he would be Uhuru’s running mate, said they were working on a pact with the Gatundu South MP to ensure they clinch victory in the next polls within the first round of voting. Uhuru lined up three aspirants seeking the Kajiado North parliamentary seat on TNA ticket namely Moses ole Sakuda, Francis Parsimei and Joseph Manje and told the electorate that the party would rally behind whoever wins the party’s primaries on August 15.
“We have not picked anyone, we want the rule of democracy to be our guide and whoever will win the support of the electorate is the candidate we will work with,” said Uhuru.
Uhuru’s gesture helped to cool political temperatures ahead of the forthcoming by-elections. There have been claims that TNA aspirants may not get fair nomination process.
The seat fell vacant after the death of former Internal Security minister George Saitoti in a helicopter crash.
