Kajiado politician, Tarayia Kores, who lost nomination in the Jubilee Party governor race recently, today retracted his earlier resolve to contest as an independent candidate.

Kores, however, declared he will back another candidate of his choice for governor and not the Jubilee flag bearer, Joseph ole Lenku.

He spoke in Koromboi area of Kajiado East constituency after attending a wedding ceremony held at the home of Mzee Samuel Tupet.

“I have my own stand and let me make it clear that the recent party nominations were a complete sham. Someone in State House had his lineup of people he wanted to take leadership from backdoor,” claimed Kores.

He said he has a lot of reservations against Lenku because he strongly believes the Jubilee candidate was forced down the throats of Kajiado electorate.

Asked who in particular he will back in the August 8 general election for Kajiado governor, Kores retorted back; “We have two options. One is that I may support Daniel Nina of Party of National Unity, and the second is the sitting governor, Dr. David Nkedianye and not Lenku, please.”

The politician claimed he is currently meeting with various groups from all the five sub counties in the county with a view to strategizing on how they will support Nina or Nkedianye and, completely, block Lenku from ascending to power.

He claimed that his decision not to support Lenku is a direct message to one individual in the presidency, who has “assumed the Maasai people have no brains to decide on which leaders to elect”.

Kores further claimed that one senior cabinet secretary and the individual in the presidency do not mean well to Kajiado Maasai, and therefore rejection of Lenku by the masses is a rebellion that the Jubilee leadership should take seriously.

He said his decision to retract his earlier resolve to vie as an independent candidate was informed by the fact that he might not make it without the support of the party.

“As I speak, I am a bitter person because the leadership in Jubilee is recognizing this Minister I am talking about. The same minister was appointed the other day and is now claiming to know much about the party than ourselves who form Jubilee while he was in the opposition,” claimed Kores.

Present during the wedding ceremony were; the Orange Democratic Movement flag bearer for the race of Country Woman MP, Esther Somoire, Kaputiei North MCA, David Nkirrimpai, Iloodokilani MCA, John Matinta, politicians Moses Leir and David Parseina.
