President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Parliamentary Group (PG) has dared all Members of Parliament (MPs) allied to the Deputy President Willam Ruto to resign from Jubilee party,this is after the meeting they had with the Deputy President in his Karen home.
They further requested the Jubilee party leadership to write to the Registrar of Political Parties to strike off their names from the ruling party,which will see some of them lose their parliamentary seats.
Jubilee party is calling out for her loyalists to continue strengthening the party and the ones who have confirmed joining United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party,should be removed from the parliamentary group register.
“The Deputy President admitted that he and his team have officially adopted UDA as their party of choice ahead of next year’s elections. By that admission, they are deemed to have resigned from Jubilee Party. We are now asking the party leadership to write to the Registrar of Political Parties to strike off their names from the list of members,” read the statement in part.
All this happened after the Deputy President William Ruto convened a Parliamentary Group meeting of MPs linked to UDA in his Karen residence where he promised to formally quit the government. Deputy President cried foul that all the failures that Jubilee has had are because of NASA coalition partners joining Jubilee.
Jubilee’s party Secretary General Raphael Tuju said their focus, as Jubilee party,is to strengthen the party.
“We are not bothered as a party. Our focus now is to strengthen party structures and embark on a roll out campaign to popularise our party ahead of 2022 polls. We are also working so well with Orange Democratic Movement (ODM),” said Tuju.
Deputy President was also accused of sabotaging the Big Four Agenda of the President all in pursuit for 2022 presidential ambitions
“It is during the Jubilee’s first term, when the DP William Ruto controlled half of the Government, that mega graft scandals rocked the Government, including the Arror and Kimwarer dams scandal, the Hustler Jet scandal, Weston Hotel land grab and the likes. It should concern Kenyans that as the DP sells his agenda, he remains mum on the action to tame graft,” read the statement.
Deputy President’s team was also accused of applying double standards on their approach of bottom-up economics yet they are the ones behind the country’s economic fall.
“It is also paradoxical that the DP William Ruto has a plan to revive the very economy he and his allies have mercilessly plundered. We wish to categorically remind the DP that no economy can thrive amid deep-rooted graft,” it stated.
They were also agitated by the fact that the Deputy President is not coming clean on his trips to uganda.The DP and Harun Aydin were recently barred from travelling to Uganda on a business trip.
“This is not a matter to be taken lightly, and the DP must come out clearly to address the numerous secret trips. The DP also stands warned that he will be personally held accountable for any security threat within our borders, including on the President,” they noted.
