Massive Blow to President Uhuru as More Than 20 Mt Kenya Leaders Are Set to Dump Him For Ruto(Source?)

Jubilee party continues to be rocked with divisions, with the better part of it playing out in the Mount Kenya region.

Some leaders from the region had shown their dissatisfaction with plans to merge ODM with Jubilee, as they spent much of their time sabotaging Raila, hence the former premier might turn on them if the alliance becomes effective.

According to Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi, all Mount Kenya East leaders are expected to decamp from Uhuru's Jubilee party and create their outfits.

Murungi argued that the ruling party has become a shell that has been left to die at its mercy. He added that he will lead other leaders from the region, to form an alliance with mindful politicians like DP Ruto, ahead of the 2022 elections.

"Jubilee is already dead, it won't be revived. I have been in discussion with some of our leaders from this region. We will leave Jubilee and have the party that will drive us, to form alliances with the right people like Ruto," Murungi said.

Among the leaders who are expected to leave Jubilee for a party, which will align itself to DP Ruto include more than 20 leaders led by Maoko Maore, Rahim Dawood among others.

Governors include Muthomi Njuki of Tharaka Nithi, Kiraitu Murungi of Meru and Martin Wambora of Embu. Another popular leader is National Assembly speaker Justin Muturi.
