After President Uhuru’s dress down last weekend, Tanga Tanga MPs have identified a new target.Pressure is mounting for Jubilee Secretary General to quit the party.In what seems like a coordinated attack from MPs allied to DP William Ruto, the leaders say Tuju is the main reason Jubilee is having current problems because he is the architecture of it all.The leaders say Tuju is undermining Ruto and does not deserve to be in the party.
The leaders who were speaking at the Kitale ASK Showground hosted by Trans Nzoia Woman Rep Janet Nangabo wanted the SG should be replaced immediately.Present at the event were MPs Alice Wahome Kandara, Catharine Waruguru (Laikipia Woman Rep) and Susan Kihika (Nakuru Senator).
“He has betrayed a government we founded. There is a lot of confusion and division in Jubilee and the person responsible is Tuju. Let him resign,” said Kandara MP Alice Wahome.
Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika said it is disturbing that there are cracks in the ruling party and one individual is behind it.The Nakuru senator blamed Tuju for working with external forces to ignite a fire in the party, adding that the only solution to save the party is to sack the SG.She claimed that Tuju is out to weaken and destroy JP and asked President Uhuru Kenyatta and Ruto not to ignore what was happening.
“Tuju is responsible for the confusions in the party. He is out to finish JP and we are not going to allow it,” said Kihika.
Waruguru said though the President and his deputy have no differences, party officials are fanning division for political mileage.Adding that, “Tuju is out to finish JP and we are not going to allow anybody to destroy what we sacrificed a lot to build.”
Kilifi MP Aisha Jumwa and Nangabo warned those working to block Dr Ruto from succeeding President Uhuru in 2022.Vowing to support Ruto’s Presidential bid, the lawmakers urged Kenyans to vote for leaders based on their development records.
“The dark forces working against Ruto will fail. We will rally behind him and ensure he ascends to power,” said Jumwa.
