More rifts continue to emerge in Jubilee Party
By Lilian Musili | June 27th 2018
Senate majority leader Kipchumba Murkomen has claimed that emerging cracks in Jubilee will divide the party that if not dealt with
Speaking to a local TV station Murkomen accused some powerful Jubilee politicians of pushing a divisive agenda.
However, he reiterated that the President and his Deputy were in good terms.
Already, some Deputy President William Ruto allies are firing warning shots. Reports say they have visited the Registrar of Political Parties Lucy Ndung'u in a bid to register a new political vehicle.
Two political parties, United Green Party (UGP) and Grand Dream Development Party (GDDP), have so far been issued with a certificates of registration.
On Tuesday Lucy Ndung'u confirmed that the two political parties had been registered.
Mincing no words, Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei said that they were looking for a new political vehicle for the DP to contest 2022 presidential race.
"As friends of William Ruto, we are contemplating formation of our own party. We are thinking of leaving Jubilee Party to Uhuru and his people," said Cherargei.
Cherargei's statement was a clear indication that there was a rift within the party which became evident days after the president announced lifestyle audit on every public servant in a bid to curb corruption.
Murkomen, Charargei and MP Oscar Sudi are on record saying that proposed lifestyle audit was not backed by law and was targeting specific people.
Murkomen added that the lifestyle audit was not meant for the good of Kenyan people but was meant to focus on the Deputy President William Ruto.
This happening after the Council of Kikuyu elders led by Peter Munga made it clear that Ruto has to hang his political boots together with President Uhuru hardly portends well for Jubilee.
