Nyeri Town Member of Parliament Ngunjiri Wambugu took to social media delivering a sarcastic congratulatory message to the winners of the just concluded mini polls yesterday.
In his direct message to Deputy President William Ruto and his Tanga Tanga allied leaders, Ngunjiri expressed his utter disappointment at the humiliation to the Jubilee party and the party leader President Uhuru Kenyatta.
This came after president Uhuru Kenyatta had met and had a word with the handshake and ODM candidate Omar Boga in the company of Mombasa Governor Ali Joho ahead of the by-elections.
He added that as Jubilee they lost, learned their lessons and lives to fight another day as the war was not yet over.
Below is his message on Facebook.
“CONGRATULATIONS TO THE DEPUTY PRESIDENT, AND THE TANGATANGA BRIGADE
I take this opportunity to congratulate #Tanga Tanga for their victory in the Msambweni Parliamentary By-Election, as well as the Gaturi and Lakeview County Assembly by-elections.
As a proud member of the Jubilee Party, I accept that we supported the candidates who have lost this time. We have lost in this particular battle.
We have also watched your performance both in the campaign, turning out the vote, and protecting it. Your GOTV was especially on point. Your propaganda machinery was also very impressive.
You have done an absolutely fantastic job and our Jubilee candidates in Gaturi and Lakeview Wards, as well as the #handshake candidate in Msambweni (who even took a photo with our Party Leader President #Uhuru Kenyatta), fairly lost to a much better-organized team.
#Kudos! We have watched and I believe we have also learnt. Fortunately, as Jubilee, we will live to fight another day as the war is not over yet. We look forward to the next battle.
#Kitaeleweka” Wrote Wambugu.
This came after Deputy President William Ruto’s backed candidate Faisal Abdallah emerged the winner in the by-elections, with the Jubilee party losing in the Gaturi and Lake view County Assembly elections.
Faisal was declared the MP-elect for the Msambweni constituency after garnering 15251 votes, beating ODM’s Omar Boga who came second with 10,444 votes.
