President Uhuru Kenyatta has kicked off the process of ejecting DP William Ruto and his allies from the ruling Jubilee Party. The outfit’s leadership now says UDA, associated to Ruto is a new party and not the one it entered into a 2017 pre-election agreement with.
According to Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju, UDA is a hostile partner who has slowed down the operations of the ruling outfit both in the National Assembly and the Senate.
”It is dishonest to say we are in the same coalition (with UDA). It is a hostile coalition. It is hostile in Parliament. It cannot be allowed to continue,” Tuju told the Registrar of Political Parties.
Speaking to Citizen TV last week Thursday, DP William Ruto gave the clearest indication it was just a matter of time before him, and his allies decamp Jubilee for UDA.
”In the event Jubilee is not available, we will have a plan B. UDA is the next best option as it is already working with Jubilee. It will become an option if Jubilee does not stop this expulsion spree,” Ruto told Linus Kakai in the Thursday interview.
