Kareke Mbiuki,Kimani Ichung'wa tell Kiraitu Murungi to respect Jubilee

By PEACELOISE MBAE | September 30th 2014

Tharaka Nithi, Kenya: A section of Jubilee leaders have slammed Alliance Party of Kenya (APK)  leader and Meru Senator Kiraitu Murungi over threats to pull out from the coalition. Speaking during a fundraising in Mugona Girls School in Tharaka Nithi County, Maara MP Kareke Mbiuki and his Kikuyu counterpart Kimani Ichung'wa said Kiraitu's actions portrayed disrespect to the Government.

Kiraitu threatened to sever ties with the ruling coalition if APK is not allocated a portion of political party funds released to parties. Mbiuki said the Government does not operate on threats and dared Murungi to pull out of the coalition.

“We don’t want threats to our government. If they wish to pull out they should do so even without informing us. APK has no numbers to hold guns to a superior coalition like Jubilee that owns the Government," he said.

"Giving demands to the Government is a sign of disrespect and desperation from the bus leader," said Ichung'wa urging leaders in Jubilee to unite.
