President Uhuru Kenyatta’s presidential bid on Monday received a major boost after a group representing the Asian community in Kenya announced it would support Kenyatta’s re-election.
Led by their representative, Farah Mannzoor, the group stated that the time had come for members of the Asian community to actively participate in Kenyan politics.
Mannzoor stated that members of her community had been part of Kenyan history for more than a century and have used their skills towards the development of the nation.
The group promised to use their resources to campaign for the Jubilee party and the re-election of President Kenyatta.
The Asian community is famed for its entrepreneurial spirit and its entry into the Jubilee party is expected to be a big boost in terms of financial and material resources.
The group was received by a Jubilee party official, Ken Marika, who represented the head of the party’s secretariat Raphael Tuju.
“As a party, we want to bring all people together. We are not interested in planting seeds of hatred or violence and hooliganism,” Marita told the group.
Mannzoor has already declared that she will be eyeing the Westlands Parliamentary seat on a Jubilee ticket.
