Murathe: William Ruto will be lucky to finish one term

He described Kenya Kwanza as a political grave, claiming that it was focused on destroying the Constitution, political parties, and Opposition so that it could stay in power for selfish gains.

He said that Kenya Kwanza has failed to deliver on any of its promises to Kenyans, and it is now focused on bringing the country down to serve individual interests.

Lack credibility

Murathe dismissed Ruto's appointments, saying that a good number of those appointed have credibility issues, which could expose Kenyans to poor public service delivery.

He added that the borrowing and increasing of levies by Kenya Kwanza were messing up gains made by the previous administration.

"We cannot get into Kenya Kwanza, which does not have the interests of Kenyans at heart. These people (Kenya Kwanza) found themselves in power after rigging elections and had no plan or strategy to serve Kenyans. That's why you can see them everywhere shouting and blaming others who are not even in government," Murathe said.

"That's why they are unable to deliver and can't remove some people's names from their mouths."

Murathe defended Uhuru after the former president visited Jubilee offices last week in Nairobi after a faction allied to Ruto's camp tried to take over the office and kick out Uhuru's confidants from the party.

Murathe said that right now they are focused on putting the party in order, punishing rebel members, and then intensifying grassroots mobilisation.

"After the elections, Kenya Kwanza started buying small parties, and we are not interested in following up on them." "But those who are in the party and are rebelling will face consequences," Murathe said.

Murathe said that even if Kenya Kwanza continues to send emissaries, they will not join them, as they are focused on uniting Kenyans and ensuring the right democratically elected leaders are in power.

"We are already sorting out internal issues. Kenya Kwanza tried to take over the Jubilee Party, but it failed," Murathe said.

He said that after building Jubilee, he would sort out internal issues and build Azimio to transform the nation.

"Kenya Kwanza has done nothing for Kenyans, and they should be home like yesterday," Murathe said.

He said that the Kenya Kwanza government has failed to respect Kenyans and is raising taxes at will, borrowing massively and disobeying the Constitution for personal gains.

He said that Ruto's threats will not stop Jubilee from working for Kenyans, adding that Kenya is not private property.

"After elections, Kenya Kwanza came for independent candidates and small parties who were working with Azimio, which was against the Azimio agreement and the Constitution."
