Former lawmaker Jeremiah Kioni responded to claims of being suspended as the Jubilee Party's Secretary General as well as reports that the party had initiated the process of leaving Azimio la Umoja Coalition.
Speaking on Friday, February 10 at Mavoko Machakos County, the politician urged Kenyans to dismiss the allegations maintaining Jubilee would stick with the opposition till the end.
He further maintained that former President Uhuru Kenyatta was still an integral part of the Jubilee Party.
"Those at State House and elsewhere began a very dangerous plan affecting Kenyans. That is the plan to ensure opposition parties have been bought and broken up to make sure no leaders remain to represent Kenyan citizens.
"I hear that some people met in Nakuru led by those who went to State House recently and claimed that Jubilee is leaving Azimio. That is a lie. Jubilee will be in Azimio to the end. Uhuru will be in Azimio to the end," clarified Kioni.
The former lawmaker accused the government of plotting to dismantle opposition parties and challenged its moles within Azimio to ship out.
He further castigated the current regime for the high cost of living despite their promises to lower the cost of common food prices within its first 100 days.
"Those who have been paid by the government to dismantle Jubilee should leave the party and leave it to us.
"We have a leader who cares about the people. Raila Odinga is fighting for the voiceless in the country," he stated while praising the former Prime Minister.
Kioni was joined by leaders from the coalition including Raila Odinga and Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka.
The ouster was initiated by MPs who had visited President William Ruto at State House on February 7. The team replaced Kioni with East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) MP Kanini Kega.
Additionally, the faction also demanded the removal of David Murathe as the party vice chairman as well as Kagwe Gichohi, who served as the party's National Treasurer.
"The aforementioned party officials are suspended forthwith and their cases referred to the party's internal dispute resolution mechanism for further determination," read part of the statement dated Friday, February 10.
