They said that they will work closely with Jubilee party to address pertinent issues affecting the citizenry but will also keep a keen eye on the wrong doings of the government.

ZK lashed out at the government for wastage of government resources that could be used to address the plight of the tea and maize farmers who have been suffering due to the infiltration of cartels into the sector.

The leaders vowed to conduct recruitment drive to popularize their party ahead of 2022 elections as they strategize to work with like-minded parties.
