- Charles Kamren defected to Jubilee party months ahead of the by-election

- KANU officials said they will not field another candidate for the race

- Baringo South parliamentary seat fell vacant after the death of Grace Kipchiom

The Baringo South parliamentary by-election set for August 17, to fill in the vacancy left by the demise of Grace Kipchiom faced another setback as KANU pulled out of the race.

This was after their preferred candidate for the race Charles Kamren defected to Jubilee party and was declared winner of the party's primaries on Sunday, June 10.

While addressing a presser on Wednesday, June 13, KANU officials accused Jubilee party of stealing their candidate months before the by-election is held.

According to the party officials, Kamren was still their choice and will not field another candidate for the race which appears to be a major win for Jubilee party in the Rift valley.

Kamren ditched KANU party during a function attended by Deputy President William Ruto in Baringo on Sunday, June 3, alongside OLempka (ODM),Kitilit(Maendeleo chapchap),Kipkuti(PDR)

He claimed Jubilee was the only party, which was committed to transforming the lives of all Kenyans.

I am happy that I am declaring here today that I have ditched Kanu for Jubilee. We have realized that Jubilee Party is committed to peace and stability of all Kenyans including this region,” said Kamuren.

The DP promised to work together with the leaders from the region who had defected to Jubilee Party.

“We are welcoming all the leaders to Jubilee Party. I promise that we will work together in uniting the people and bringing development,” Ruto.
