Kenyans have lauded NASA’s move to hold rallies in Jubilee strongholds, saying it was a show of democracy.
Political aspirants have been leaving Jubilee in droves for fear of being left out in the upcoming party primaries.
In Tharaka-Nithi, over 25 sitting and aspiring leaders including the deputy Governor have already left.
