  • Jubilee Vice Chairman David Murathe has once again castigated Deputy President William Ruto and disclosed that a plan had been set in motion to kick the DP out of Jubilee and punish him for indiscipline too. 

    Murathe referred to the summon letter issued to the DP on Thursday, January 21, adding that Ruto's allies will also face Jubilee Party's wrath. 

    DP Ruto was faulted for supporting United Democratic Alliance (UDA) candidates in ward elections in Nakuru County. 

    "Those leaders pushing for the UDA agenda including the DP will soon lose their seats. Things are cooking, just wait and see.

    "They cannot claim to be our party members yet they field candidates against ours. Maybe it's time to review the coalition agreement," Murathe told the Nation. 

    He claimed that UDA proponents were disobeying the law despite Ruto and his allies claiming that the wheelbarrow party was aligned with Jubilee. 

    The Constitution stipulates that one cannot be a member of two parties at the same time. 

    Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju added that he would follow up on the summon letter issued to Ruto by Jubilee's Nakuru Branch Secretary-General Peter Cheruiyot. 

    "The disciplinary committee is aware of the proceedings and they will handle the issue and report to me.

    "I will take them to the Jubilee National Management Committee then the National Executive Committee will make a decision and seal their fate," Tuju added. 

    Registrar of Political Parties, Anne Nderitu said that she was ready to act and ascertain whether UDA was a legal party and whether or not it was under Jubilee.

    However, she was yet to receive an inquiry letter from Jubilee.
