Why Murathe Believes President Ruto Has Stakes in Kioni-Kega Tussle

Jubilee Party vice-chair David Murathe has alleged that president Ruto has a hand in the ongoing Jubilee wrangles. Two antagonistic factions have emerged within the party with one side associating self with retired president Uhuru Kenyatta and Jeremiah Kioni.The other side is led by EALA Member of Parliament Kanini Kega and it involves leaders among them the nominated MP Sabina Chege who is now perceived to be the party leader.

In a recent discourse, Mr Murathe opined that the conflict and showdowns witnessed in the party are but the works of Ruto. The former law maker cited that the Head of State is destabilizing the party as revenge to those who worked against his Statehouse bid.Ruto's initial plans to use Jubilee party to vie for presidency badly flopped after Uhuru allies among them Murathe, Tuju and Kioni conspired with ODM operatives to expunge Ruto and proxies from the party leadership.

With Murathe and team declaring Ruto and allies persona non grata in Jubilee, the latter formed United Democratic Alliance, the party that catapulted him to echelons of power as the fifth Kenyan president.Despite of Kega campaigning against Ruto in 2022 election, he has joined arms with the latter and more notably he has thrown his gauntlets behind Ruto a thing that makes Murathe and team read foul in his association.

Since Raila's unprecedented poll loss, former Ndaragwa Member of Parliament has been among the few Mt Kenya based political operatives who have stood with the veteran politician.

Kioni has made a name for himself by labelling self as an avid supporter of Raila and greatest critic of William Ruto's establishment. The former wants the government to open servers and prove that Kenya Kwanza outscored Azimio fairly.
