Jubilee Party's Deputy Secretary General Caleb Kositany challenged the community to look for an alternative presidential candidate other than those who have been in the race. The Soi MP added that the DP has a better chance of leading this country. "The history of this country has it that the mantle of leadership has always been handed over from the old to the younger generations. The next leadership should be a generation gap of between 45-52 years, where the DP falls. He continued, "If Luos can bring forth a candidate who falls in this age bracket, then he/she is welcomed to join us in this brigade as we chat the destiny of this country." Lang'ata MP however called Kenyans to live in harmony, saying both the DP and former Premier have worked together for the good of this nation. He said that in politics, nothing is impossible and therefore said that they will tour the whole country to drum support for the DP. "We pushed Uhuru Kenyatta to be the president and as he will be finishing his term in 2022, we are still ready to work with Raila," said Korir. Ruto and Raila were close political friends during the 2007 Presidential campaigns but parted ways soon after the post-election violence when Ruto alongside President Uhuru and four others were indicted by the International Criminal Court for allegedly perpetrating the violence, that left over 1,000 people killed and over 6,000 others displaced. They have been sworn political enemies since then and Ruto has openly been accusing Raila of using his handshske with the President to stop him from succeeding President Kenyatta.
