Jubilee Party rolls out grand campaign machinery

Jubilee Party has started a charm offensive for the 2017 General Election with a state-of-the-art multimillion eight-storey office that will house the new political outfit.

The building on Pangani along Thika Superhighway is one of its kind and has been meticulously coloured and branded in the party colours of yellow and red ahead of Saturday’s launch.

Senate Deputy Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen told Nairobi News that the building was just the start of the big things that Jubilee had in store.

“We are serious about building institutions that will outlast this generation and our desire is to show Kenyans that we are not in this to build a party only as an election vehicle,” Mr Murkomen said of the building.

Delegates that will attend the three-day event to launch the new party from Thursday to Friday will start arriving in Nairobi on Wednesday.


Party National Steering Committee co-chairman Noah Wekesa said that the 12 different parties will have their different National Delegates Conventions on Thursday September 8 that will happen in different venues in Bomas of Kenya and the Kasarani Indoor Stadium.

The big launch will then happen on September 10 when President Uhuru Kenyatta will address the convention and unveil names of the outfit’s interim officials.

“We take this process seriously and it will be the legacy of President Kenyatta a formidable political outfit that will mobilize Kenyans around issues,” said Mr Murkomen.

Meanwhile, workers were Monday afternoon putting the final touches of the multimillion building to house the party’s offices.

Social media was on Sunday awash with pictures of the new well-branded building with the party’s logo placed strategically on its windows, and with new Prados that have been branded with the Jubilee Party colours.
