The Deputy President has been on a tour around the country campaigning ahead of the 2022 general elections. Despite the second In command being in office through a Jubilee Party ticket, he has always been associated with United Democratic Alliance since the president had a handshake with the opposition leader, in the by-elections held during this period, he has openly campaigned for IDA candidates instead of his party's candidates.
Today during his campaigns, the Deputy President for the first time publicly confirmed that he has left Jubilee Alliance Party and that he has joined the United Democratic Alliance, he went ahead to declare the jubilee party dead and blamed others (Probably the president) for the fall of jubilee party.
The party that was formed ahead of the 2017 elections when TNA and URP merged with other small parties to form the large party is now on its knees. The party earlier this week announced an upcoming National Delegates meeting to strengthen the party ahead of the 2022 elections and it seems like it will take place without the deputy president if he meant his words today.
Aden Duale who accompanied the deputy president also retaliated Ruto's words comparing the current state of jubilee to that of scrap material. He commented that the party is dead and its scrap has been sold to rival party ODM.
Winding up, William Ruto claimed that they won't be threatened by the looming Jubilee party delegates meeting that he claimed will be aimed at expelling party defaulters. He confirmed that he has moved to UDA and the other group has moved to UDA.
