Kandara Mp Alice Wahome has asked the Jubilee party to expect more defections as leaders seek to position themselves ahead of the 2022 polls. 

Wahome said Jubilee party is dead and nothing can be done to revive it.

"We welcome new members who joined us recently and this is just the beginning because more leaders are going to Jon us soon,” she said.

The MP was speaking at her constituency where she said that the doors for UDA re-open to any leader willing to join pointing out that this will be the party that shall form the next government.

Wahome, a close ally to Deputy President William Ruto who is the defector leader of UDA's party said that they are keen not to mismanage its affairs like what jubilee did.

"We had a lot of faith in Jubilee but thugs and brokers took over and deceit and deception became the order of the day which led to its crumbling,” Wahome said.

"We regret that all the efforts we put to build up the party have gone to waste as the party is a dead horse,” the MP added.

Wahome claimed that the shakeup in Jubilee was a scheme to ensure the party is not strong enough to accommodate the Deputy President’s 2022 Presidential bid.

"We now have our own political vehicle which we shall use to seek votes from our people,” Wahome added.

The MP also told off ODM leader Raila Odinga on his political threats to Ruto saying that the only tsunami that will be witnessed shall be caused by the people when they cast their votes.

Wahome insisted that the general elections should not be postponed claiming that people are yearning for new leadership. 

"People are tired of the leaders they have because they are not serving their interests and they want a change," she remarked.

On BBI, the MP said she is hopeful that the judges shall be guided by the law and constitution to make the right decision.

"I believe the judges have sufficient wisdom, legal intelligence and independence to make a good ruling on this issue," Wahome added.
