The ruling Jubilee party has been making big discussions and big headlines in both social media and mainstream media. This is because of the alleged break up between the president and his deputy who contributed much in the formation of the party.
The vice chair David Murathe has been involved in many headlines emerging from the party because of his say in the party. Murathe has come out to explain what will happen to the party after the DP and his allies decamp to the UDA party. Murathe has denied claims that the party will be weakened and will remain as a shell party as it is being alleged by most of the DP allies.
He has said that the party is going to form new alliances with like minded people and will remain very strong. He has not said whether it is going to field a candidate in the top office but he has assured those who has faith in the party and its leadership that the party will remain strong even after 2022.
Political parties in Kenya has a history of not withstanding a general election twice once it has taken a candidate to statehouse. For instance in 2002 the retired president Kibaki used NARC to statehouse which could not have held him till 2007 where he returned on a PNU ticket. President Uhuru used TNA in 2012 but in 2017 he used Jubilee. These dynamics explains how political parties lack workable policies to hold them even when members differ on ideology.
