The ruling party's National Management Committee had resolved to oust Ruto from his top leadership role in the party as the Deputy Party leader.
The decision by the party to oust Ruto raised debates on whether he could as well be removed from office as the Deputy President of the republic of Kenya.
Jubilee Party Secretary General Raphael Tuju has said Dr.William Ruto's position as Deputy President will still be safe even if President Uhuru Kenyatta approves his removal as Deputy party leader.
Tuju has said that Ruto will only cease to be the Deputy President of the Republic of Kenya if he is impeached by Parliament and nit by losing party leadership role.
"He(Dr.Ruto) can still hold his position as the Deputy President if he ceases to be a member of Jubilee party that is unless he is impeached by Parliament," Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju said.
