Ruto Allies Say They'll Not Quit Jubilee as Rift in Ruling Party Widen

TUKO 08/31/2020

- Jubilee deputy secretary-general Caleb Kositany said Tanga Tanga will fight tooth and nail to make sure troubles in Jubilee had been solved

- Kositany said DP's camp was not leaving the ruling party despite calls by Uhuru's allies for them to exit

- The Soi MP said Jubilee Asili Centre was not a political party but an alternative headquarters for Jubilee Party

Deputy President William Ruto allies have said they are staying put in the Jubilee Party despite calls for them to leave the outfit by a section of President Uhuru Kenyatta allies.

Soi MP Caleb Kositany, who is also Jubilee's deputy secretary-general, said Tanga Tanga members were yet to cross that bridge since they were hopeful that the mess in Jubilee would be solved.

Speaking to Citizen TV, Kositany called on the party leadership to swiftly solve the chaos in the political outfit which he said had ceased operating as a party and was now a private members club.

"We are not forming another political party until we sort out the mess in Jubilee. The party is a confused state.

Jubilee Asili Centre

On matters Jubilee Asili Centre, the Jubilee Party official clarified it was not a political party but an alternative office for the ruling party.

This was after vice-chairman David Murathe asked the Tanga Tanga battalion to exit Jubilee since they had launched their own organisation.

"I do not know why they are afraid of any move that the deputy president makes. Jubilee Asili Centre is an alternative centre for the Jubilee headquarters," the Soi lawmaker added.

He said the DP's camp would first fight tooth and nail to first reclaim Jubilee before resorting to leaving the party.

Backing his sentiments, Kikuyu town MP Kimani Ichungwa said Tanga Tanga members were being asked to leave the ruling party so that looting of resources could continue.

"They are asking us to leave so that we can give them an opportunity to loot public resources," Ichungwa said on Sunday, August 30.

This came days after the second in command alleged Jubilee was no longer functioning as a party stating that the same "virus" that infected the independence party KANU and killed it had spread to the coalition.

The DP, however, argued there was still more time to sort out issues in the party but if the "hopelessness" continues, he will dump the party and be his own man.
