Tuju Addresses Being Locked Out of Jubilee Headquarters

Jubilee Secretary General, Raphael Tuju, has addressed reports alleging that he was locked out of the party’s headquarters in Pangani, Nairobi. 

“I am currently behind my desk at Jubilee Headquarters and I have just finished a meeting with some of our staff." 

“You are free to come and take a picture,” Tuju stated. 

Jubilee Communications Director, Albert Mwemusi, concurred with his boss and refuted the allegations that went viral on social media on Thursday morning. 

“The office is open and the SG has been holding a meeting,” Mwemusi told media.

Digital Strategist and Deputy President William Ruto’s ally, Dennis Itumbi, had alleged that Tuju was barred from accessing the party’s offices on Thursday morning, October 14. 

“Jubilee HQ locked. Tuju locked out. They plan to blame the pandemic for office closure."

“Administration altercation is on,” Itumbi posted on his social media pages. 

A section of politicians allied to Uhuru has been demanding and pushing for the ouster of Tuju and Jubilee Vice Chairman, David Murathe. 

The duo was accused of being a stumbling block for reforms, vibrancy and growth at the party. 

Calls for their ouster surfaced after Jubilee lost to Ruto-linked United Democratic Alliance (UDA) at the Kiambaa and Juja by-elections.
