After successfully ousting the Members allied to the Deputy President William Ruto from the ruling jubilee outfit Jubilee party Deputy Chairman says it was time he left the president Uhuru-led outfit.
Speaking yesterday during an interview with NTV the former Gatanga legislator stated that his mission was already accomplished and he had better take a well-deserved break from the party leadership.
The controversial Jubilee party leader continued that his main role in the Jubilee party was to kick out the DP allied leaders, a thing he has since successfully done and he was happy.
He however added that he only remained with one headache currently of kicking the second in command and his infiltration out of his Mt. Kenya backyard.
“Our job was to push those who do not believe in the dream of the party out. I am happy they have found a house called UDA. Our work is done.,” he said.
Murathe also noted that they would soon open up a window period for the recruitment of the new party leaders.
This comes amid calls from a number of party officials to have fresh and young blood in the party leadership after the recent humiliations in the by-elections.
“We are all in an interim capacity and soon we will be releasing a timetable on how we will start campaigns for the party positions from the ward level to the national level. Myself, I am not interested in any position moving forward,” he said.
Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru was on the record calling for the rebranding of the party ahead of the 2022 general elections amid dwindling fortunes.
“The rains have beaten us. Our fortunes are dwindling. Intense introspection is demanded,” she said.
Reports indicate that a number of Jubilee officials have already identified their political houses ahead of the general elections and are just waiting for the opportune time to do it.
