Deputy President William Ruto has urged his allies to stop attacking President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Jubilee party at large.
According to reports, the DP reportedly held a meeting with his allies earlier this week and asked them to quit attacking Uhuru.
In addition, Ruto also asked Jubilee Party Secretary-General Caleb Kositany to withdraw a letter he had made to the registrar of political parties demanding that the ruling party takes part in grass-root elections.
He also asked Kositany not to make any more demands.
This came months after the DP revealed options if he misses Jubilee party ticket in 2022.
He stated that he will ditch the Jubilee party and form another party which he will use to vie for the country’s top seat.
“When the President disagreed with Kanu, he formed TNA and when I was done with ODM, I formed URP. In politics, there are always options and I will employ them at the right time,” Ruto said.
He further stated that the party had been hijacked by conmen seeking to send it to its political deathbed.
“The party has been hijacked by brokers who are running it through fear. Their word is the party position. The same virus that infected KANU and killed it after the 2002 elections has come to Jubilee,” the DP said.
“The mistake KANU made is that they found themselves with more people outside. With the kind of investment we have put in Jubilee, it will be tragic if we lose on the ideals. The biggest loser will be President Kenyatta and me,” he added.
