The team of top civil servants, professionals and businessmen from Ukambani will meet the President on Thursday this week to give progress reports and strategize.
The team has formed a lobby group named WONI, headed by Kalonzo Musyoka's former law partner Prof. Paul Musili Wambua.
Other notable members of the team are Health CS Cleopa Mailu, Deputy Chief of Staff Nzioka Waita, Principal Secretaries Mutua Kilaka(Treasury), Victor Kyalo(ICT) as well as influential businessman Peter Muthoka. According to Mr. Joe Kithyaka, a businessman in Machakos and the head of the Woni secretariat, they are targeting to get 500,000 votes in the entrie Ukambani region. This is a much higher figure than the 89,064 votes Jubilee managed Ukambani in 2013.
They plan to capitalize on the disquiet in NASA over Kalonzo's bid as well as the rise of Maendeleo Chap Chap which supports Uhuru Kenyatta's re-election bid.
The team has already recruited 3,000 foot-soldiers to help in grassroots mobilization and recruitment of Jubilee supporters.
