This comes after Kiambu Woman Rep Gathoni Wamuchomba, Nakuru Town East MP David Gikaria, Kabete MP James Githua, Githunguri MP Gabriel Kago, and Subukia MP Samuel Gachobe defected to William Ruto's Tanga Tanga wing.
Jubilee Secretary-General Raphael Tuju dismissed those who defected from Jubilee to Ruto's UDA in a statement yesterday, calling them insignificant to the party.
Tuju says he will not be surprised if more leaders defect to Ruto's Tanga Tanga political grouping, adding that those who have left have sensed danger in party primaries ahead of the crucial 2022 General Election.
“As a party, we have resolved to subject our aspirants to thorough screening so that we can have leaders who can stand firm,” he said.
Tuju went on to say that despite the criticism, the planned coalition between Jubilee and the ODM party is still on track, and that the defections will have no effect on their marriage with former Prime Minister Raila Odinga's outfit.
