Taita-Taveta Senator Dan Mwazo and Women Rep Joyce Lay have joined the Jubilee party, http://chelseamamma.co.uk/wp-includes/class-wp-locale-switcher.php Chimp Corps report.

They joined the ruling party on Saturday as President Uhuru Kenyatta visited Taita-Taveta County.

The President visited Bura, http://communique-de-presse-gratuit.com/wp-content/plugins/register-plus/register-plus.php Mwatate, http://davepoulin.ca/wp-includes/admin-bar.php Voi and Taita-Taveta University where he spoke to the young people from the county.

Speaking at a public rally in Voi, Lay said Coast residents had for long spoken about historical injustices.

But she urged them to ‘’move on’’ because Jubilee has begun to deal with the challenges.

“Why should we continue with the narrative of historical injustices when we have a government willing to correct the situation and help us move forward?” Lay asked.

Senator Mwazo had announced his move to Jubilee earlier at Bura.

He said he wanted to join the party because the ‘’the interests of the Taita-Taveta people lay in Jubilee.

He cited roads that have been built, including Voi-Mwatate, Mwatate-Taveta and Mwatate-Wundanyi.

The move is seen as a big blow to the opposition ahead of the elections.

Kenyatta has in recent weeks ratcheted up rhetoric against opposition, saying they lack an agenda for Kenya.

Kenyatta has as well addressed hundreds of rallies and launched multi-billion Kenyan Shilling projects for the rural power as election campaigns heat up.

In his address, Kenyatta also urged the government to establish a dry port in Voi, implement the phase two of the Mzima Springs water project and construction of the county headquarters in Mwatate.

“Politics is not about parties, it is not about clan. Politics is about interests,” said Senator Mwazo.

“I seek the seat of governor and I will pursue the interests of Taita-Taveta people,” he added.

Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya, Cabinet Secretaries Najib Balala and Dan Kazungu, Senator Mike Sonko urged the residents of Taita-Taveta to join the winning team.
