Murathe Reemerges With Good News For Ruto, Makes a Relieving Announcement For UDA

Allies of Deputy President William Ruto are free to carry on with their operations and their ongoing efforts to strengthen the UDA party, Jubilee Party Vice Chair David Murathe has said.

This comes a day after officials of Jubilee, which has been seeking to cut links with the PDR party, which has been changed to UDA, found the process time wasting, judging by the remaining time to 2022.

The officials, in a meeting on Monday, also noted that since some of those who were elected on the PDR party ticket support President Uhuru Kenyatta and his agenda, the process should be ended.

Murathe now says those working with UDA after decamping from Jubilee can continue but will have to continue paying their subscription fees to the ruling outfit and stop interfering in Jubilee affairs.

“Some people felt they should be allowed to grow their party and we ours. We don’t expect them to be involved in revamping our party when we begin revamping our grassroots structures. We will let them, but they will have to continue making subscriptions to the party,” the close ally of the president told The Standard on Tuesday.

He suggested that while Jubilee will not be seeking an official divorce from UDA, it has decided that it will have nothing to do with it and leaders associated with it henceforth.

“In our heads, UDA is no longer a partner in Jubilee. So there is no need for further conversation on this matter,” the former Gatanga lawmaker further said.

He now wants allies of Ruto to focus on their party, but had at the same time warned that since most are still yet to leave Jubilee, they will be expelled if they continue attacking Uhuru, the party leader.
