Jubilee Reveals Decision on Tuju, Murathe Ouster

Jubilee has resolved to safeguard Secretary-General, Raphael Tuju, and Vice-Chairman, David Murathe, from losing their party positions. 

The party's Deputy Secretary-General, Joshua Kutuny - on Saturday, July 24 - announced that Tuju and Murathe would retain their roles as the party realigns and rebrands. 

Eldas MP Adan Keynan added that the duo will play a key role in Jubilee's future which included conducting grassroots elections to enroll new members to spruce up the party. 

"We know our weaknesses and we are going to strengthen them," Kutuny defended Murathe and the secretariat. 

MPs aligned with President Uhuru Kenyatta added that they had further decided to unite and desist from blaming each other and seeking excuses for losses and failures. 

However, Nakuru Governor, Lee Kinyanjui escalated calls to have Murathe and Tuju kicked out of the party. On Friday, July 23, he cautioned that they had lost confidence in their leadership.

"Their days in Jubilee are over. The party belongs to the people and we, the politicians, are the ones who will face them in 2022 to explain and showcase our scorecards.

"Tuju and Murathe will not contest in any election. They will move on to the next available party. If they loved their party, they would have already resigned," Kinyanjui complained. 

The clamour to eject the embattled duo was initiated by Kieni MP Kanini Kega who blamed them for the Kiambaa by-election loss. As a close confidant of Uhuru, Kega urged the two to step aside and pave the way for fresh leadership. 

Deputy President William Ruto's allies, nonetheless, celebrated the woes facing Tuju and Murathe, who they accused of kicking them out of the party.
