After making public his interest in filling in the late Muchai’s position as Kabete MP, Former Embakasi MP Ferdinand Waititu has already won round one after emerging as the flag-bearer of Jubilee Alliance Party in preparation for the upcoming by-election.
The news of him being named JAP flag-bearer was received with all sorts of reactions from ever opinionated KOT. Here are some of the tweets we sampled.
@KTNNewsKEFunny how Kiambu county is devoid of leaders, importing an MP? Kabete must be really desperate I dare say, Waititu kaa Nairobi

I must admit Waititu is special. The guy never loses hope, even if it means scratching the barrel’s bottom. He’s a lesson in resilience. — Gabriel Oguda (@gabrieloguda) March 15, 2015
“@kennytoonz: We continue electing political jokes, and when they start cracking, we complain instead of having a good laugh!#Waititu”
