Just hours after the Jubilee party announced that it will be holding its first National Delegates Convention Meeting, NDC on 30th this month, Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu has come out to shed more light on the same.
Taking to his Facebook page on Monday evening, Ngunjiri detailed the number of delegates expected at the meeting to be held at Kasarani Stadium Nairobi.
He went ahead to reveal the guests and leaders who have been invited to attend the meeting. Despite hopes by some Kenyans that DP William Ruto, who is still Jubilee Deputy Party Leader, will attend, Ngunjiri sent out a clear indication that the DP has not been invited for the meeting.
According to the Kieleweke MP, not all delegates have been invited due to coronavirus restrictions, adding that the few selected have only been invited. He also added that leaders from other Jubilee allied political parties will be invited to attend the meeting.
"But to adhere to COVID-19 protocols, the party management will settle on the number of delegates to invite. Only those invited will attend. Additionally, leaders of political parties which have declared interest of partnering with Jubilee in the coming elections will be invited," read part of his Facebook post.
Wambugu also revealed that the meeting will discuss a probable end of the relationship between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto.
He sent out a clear indication that the delegates will use the opportunity to oust Ruto as the party's Deputy Leader, adding that Ruto has openly defied his boss Uhuru Kenyatta, hence the need for the party to show him the door.
"Is this the process that marks, with finality, the split of UhuRuto? How did it come to this? That might as well be it. Importantly, it is the DP who insisted on putting the country in campaign mode years to the election, ignoring the party leader’s call to work for the people and campaign at the appropriate time." he added
Here is the full Statement from Wambugu;
