The National Vision Party's decision not to dissolve to join Jubilee has added to growing troubles for the Jubilee Party.

There are fears within Jubilee that the National Vision Party, Kanu and Chama Cha Mashinani will reap big from the expected fallout from Jubilee nominations.

Nicholas Biwott said his NVP will not be dissolved but will be affiliated to the Jubilee Party of Kenya (JPK) during the 2017 polls. However he gave a veiled threat saying it would be a mistake for anyone to ignore the small parties.

“All these parties are registered and no one should think they are light. Kenyans will decide who back during the elections”, said Biwott.

NVP, Kanu and Chama cha Mashinani are closely linked with Biwott being close to the Moi family and Gideon Moi who heads Kanu has been working closely with Bomett Governor Isaac Rutto who leads the Mashinani party.
