The massive losses by the Jubilee Party in the recently held by-elections has indeed been a big matter of concern to many leaders especially those belonging to the ruling party.
Many people have viewed the losses as seemingly a sign that the party has lost the mojo that it had back then in 2017, whereby it won many seats in the general elections.
And as many leaders especially the pro-Uhuru are still looking for solutions on what to do in order to return the party to it's former glory, Kirinyaga Governor Ann Waiguru has already offered a possible solution.

Taking to her Facebook account the vocal county boss advised the party to change its tact from the way it did things back then.
This is especially as most young people have come on board with regards to the electorate, and will play a big role in the outcome of the 2022 General Elections.
" The rains have beaten us. Our fortunes are dwindling. Intense introspection is demanded.
As we head to 2022 we must recognize that the Party is now operating in new context far different from 10 years ago. We have a much younger generation dominating the electorate. Our outlook and strategies must suit the times, and so we must be willing to step out of our comfort zones" Part of her message read.
The post however quickly elicited reactions from Kenyans who alleged that her advice came late, and that the party had allegedly already lost its grip.
Here are some of their reactions.
Governor Ann Waiguru's advice to Jubilee Party comes just weeks before the Kiambaa by-elections that are slated for July 15, 2021, that are mainly seen to be a two-horse-race between the DP Ruto linked party UDA and the Jubilee Party.
However before the mini polls, the ruling party has been uncharacteristically defeated in many of the by-elections like the one in Juja, Bonchari, Rurii and London Ward in Nakuru.
