And with such people expected to be kicked out as Jubilee members on November 30, allies of Uhuru have said that they will not pursue them further.
Kieni MP Kanini Kega told the Nation that Jubilee has no time to focus on pushing Ruto and his troops to lose their seats even after expunging them.
Allies of the President told the paper that after the NDC meeting, they will leave it to the President to decide the fate of the DP and those working with him.
“The law will take its course. For us, we have no business following whether a person loses a seat or not, we will just do what is needful for us as a party. We do not have the energy to (kick people out of the party). We do not want to focus on things that do not add value to us,” Kega told the paper.
His remarks were echoed by Ndaragwa lawmaker Jeremiah Kioni, who, however, wonders why Ruto's troops even have to be expelled from Jubilee.
He says that Ruto and his men left Jubilee a long time ago, hence their public association with UDA, on whose ticket Ruto is seeking the presidency.
“How do you expel people who left a long time ago, people without a conscience? Ruto is the prince of impunity in this country and I have known him for that during my political career,” he told the paper.
Meanwhile, Ruto and his allies have told the rival camp to bring it on, holding that Jubilee died a long time ago and has even been sold out.
But he has at the same time been taking credit of Jubilee government's achievements, especially while campaigning in Mt Kenya, Uhuru's backyard.
