Police in Kiambu county have cancelled two political events after parties booked the same grounds in the same day.

United Democratic Alliance (UDA) and Jubilee Party are said to have booked Karuri Primary School grounds in Kiambaa constituency for today (Sunday).

UDA, linked to Deputy President William Ruto, was set to hold a football tournament later today.

According to former State House digital strategist Dennis Itumbi, UDA booked and paid for the grounds back in May.

Speaking on Sunday, Kiambu Deputy County Commander Ali Nuno said the police blocked the parties from holding the events for fear of insecurity.

Reports indicate that UDA supporters are headed to the grounds for the tournament.

“Our Football Awards will go on. On that field. Hii siasa ya Kifua and Intimidation by Jubilee must be faced head on. Leo ni Leo,” tweeted Itumbi.

Karuri Njama of Jubilee and John Njuguna Wanjiku of UDA are set to square out for the Kiambaa MP seat on July 15.

An opinion poll by Radio Africa last week showed that Wanjiku was the clear winner in the mini-poll with a 54 percent backing.

25 per cent said they would vote for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s choice while 18 per cent said that they were undecided and three per cent said that they would not vote at all.

Also taking place on the same day is a mini-poll for Muguga Ward representative position.
