There is no room for ODM and KANU in Jubilee government – Ruto declares

Besieged Deputy President William Ruto has declared there is no room for Raila’s ODM Party and Gideon Moi’s KANU in the ruling jubilee coalition.

Having been left with social media platform to vent his frustrations, the deputy president through his tweet this evening urged the jubilee fraternity to ignore alleged propaganda of a possible coalition between jubilee, KANU and ODM.

“Jubilee fraternity should ignore propaganda peddled by desperados seeking ragtag ethnic coalitions. Our progressive constitution vest power in party organs not personalities.Jubilee the governing party has no room for selfish evil experiments meant to benefit brokers & their ilk.” Ruto said

The Deputy President Ruto was reacting to reports of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Grand scheme with ODM Leader Raila Odinga and KANU’s Gideon Moi to form a new coalition.

According to a top jubilee official, the president as the party leader has the ultimate powers to invoke Article 9 of the jubilee constitution to form a coalition with ODM and KANU without consulting his deputy or any other party official.

The Article 9 of the Jubilee party states that the party leader shall promote political consultations, engagement and co-operation with other political parties and coalitions.

A section of Jubilee leaders among them Nyeri town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu and his Nandi Hills counterpart argue that the same way Uhuru had a handshake with Raila without consulting anyone is the same way he can initiate a coalition with any interested parties.

Barely days ago after holding an exclusive meeting with Raila Odinga, Francis Atwoli and Eugene Wamalwa, the jubilee vice chairman David Murathe declared that DP Ruto can have the jubilee party for himself if he “continues being stubborn”.

Hon Murathe would further allude that Kenyans must expect new political formations to strengthen the nation unity moving forward after the coronavirus pandemic.

In more complicating twists for Ruto, the Jubilee National Advisory made up of two representatives from each of the 12 parties that merged to form the Jubilee coalition through its chair Albert Nyaundi {Ford People} and Secretary General Hassan Osman {UDF} said that the president has the full powers, authority and the liberty to run jubilee and enter any coalition as he pleases.

Deputy President William Ruto who has been rattled by the latest development has dismissed the idea and termed it a misinterpretation of the party constitution by people he has now branded desperate power brokers who he said will have no room in jubilee to advance their “selfish evil experiments”
