There have been reports in the media that a Merger between Jubilee and the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) is on the verge of collapsing just a day after One Kenya Alliance principals met. Further reports stated that talks between the two have been suspended indefinitely.
Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke, Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju has disputed the allegations saying he is not aware of anything of such sort. He further noted that they are in advance talks with ODM and everything will be finalized as soon as possible.
"No, I've not heard of such reports. We (Jubilee) want to have active engagement with ODM as we head towards 2022 elections in terms of coming up with an alliance which is in the cards,” he said as quoted by the media house.
This will be bad news to political rivals like United Democratic Alliance (UDA) which is headed by Deputy President William Ruto and One Kenya Alliance (OKA). The two have been in a war of words with the ruling party together with ODM as 2022 general elections are looming.
