In an indirect message which seemed to target Deputy President William Ruto and his allies, Kimunya said it does not benefit anyone when Jubilee members split to form new parties then compete against each other.
This is after DP Ruto said he was prepared to ditch Jubilee for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party as his vehicle of choice in the 2022 presidential elections.
Kimunya said instead of competing against one other, Jubilee members should compete on who will be the party’s presidential flag bearer and the party leader.
Kimunya who was speaking during an interview with KTN said no one should leave Jubilee because they think they can’t get support.
“I would encourage everyone to work together and compete within Jubilee. And not to split Jubilee to then compete against one another as different parties.”
“We can have our own competition in terms of who becomes the party leader or who becomes the presidential candidate for Jubilee in 2022. Do not try to run away because you probably think you would not get support and start looking for another party to build,” added Kimunya.
The N.A majority leader further said Jubilee members should work together to make the party strong like their competitors, ODM and KANU.
“It is so unfortunate what some of the members within Jubilee are doing. Let’s give life to Jubilee, Jubilee is here to stay. Our main competitor ODM has been in play since 2005 as one party and we would have expected that Jubilee as a party would outlast all these other parties,” added Kimunya.
