The Deputy President Dr.William Ruto yesterday unveilled a parallel office in what was seen as a response to a “fight” with the president to control the jubilee party.
Accordin’g to the standard,the party office was code-named jubilee Asili Centre ,with a slogan “SOTE PAMOJA”
It is located in Nairobi’s Kilimani area, On Makini and off Riara Road.
In attendance of the new address were Jubilee Members of Parliament , especially those who,because of supporting his 2020 political ambitions had been ousted from various parliamentary positions.
Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Hon Kipchumba Murkomen said that they would be holding meetings from their newly opened offices.
According to the Vocal leader ,the jubilee party offices located at Pangani had been declared out of bounds for them (Dp and allies)
He confirmed that amon’g the agenda discussed yesterday included consolation of those that are allegedly targeted by the ongoin’g “sanitization” process in Uhuru-Led Jubilee Party.
Murkomen said that Jubilee Asili is a place for all members who still are in belief of the original Jubilee Party Agenda including implementation of what they had promised the people of Kenya.
Confirming occurrence of the meeting, Ruto’s communication director Mr. Emmanuel Talam ,said that it aimed at telling them that they have a responsibility to implement the Jubilee agenda that saw them assume office in 2013 and 2017.
Yesterday ,through a tweet,Ruto thanked the MP’s, with whom he had lunch, for their good service to both the party and the Nation.
The Dp urged the members to continue focusing on transformational agenda,now and going forward.
The Tangatanga meeting came just a day after President Uhuru hosted Wiper’s and Chama Cha Mashinani’s Kalonzo Musyoka and Isaac Ruto respectively.
The two signed a cooperation agreement at the Jubilee party headquarters ,in a ceremony that was attended by The Secretary General Hon. Raphael Tuju and vice- Chairman David Murathe.
Barely a day before the Tangatanga meetin’g ,The Speaker of the national assembly,Justin Muturi made an announcement of official discharge of all those de-whipped by the party.
Hon Kipchumba Murkomen yesterday said that the Jubilee Asili Centre was funded by party members who held the view that they had been rendered “powerless” by denying them access to the jubilee party headquarters.
He added that the situation had impacted negatively on contribution of members to the implementation of their agenda and growth of the party.
