Jaguar complains about ‘double voting’ in Jubilee nominations – VIDEO

Musician Charles Njagua, popularly known as Jaguar, has voiced his concerns in the ongoing Jubilee Party primaries.

Jaguar, who is vying for the Starehe Constituency parliamentary seat, told journalists at Moi Avenue Primary Schools that he had received reports of some voters being barred by his opponents’ supporters.

“Some youth who support a certain candidate have been jumping the queues and blocking people from voting, while at the same time fixing their colleague into the queues. But the police have contained the situation,” Jaguar said.


Jaguar also claimed that the indelible ink being applied on voters was erasable and that voters were going back to vote for their preferred candidate.

“The ink that is being used can be easily erased and some voters have been returning to vote for a second time,” he said.

He appreciated the move by the party to restrict Nairobi primaries to involve only party members captured in the party register.

Jaguar is facing off with Starehe MP Maina Kamanda, Paul Gichuki, Stanley Gathogo, Francis Mwangi and Simon Chege.

The aspirant who clinches the party ticket will face off with Ukweli Party candidate Boniface Mwangi along with the candidate who will bag the ODM ticket between Steve Mbogo, Winstones Churchill, Rhoda Kivati and Gitonga Mathanga.
