Nominated governing Jubilee party member of parliament Maina Kamanda has responded to the Deputy President William Ruto claim that Raila Odinga is to blame for chaos in the governing Jubilee party. Speaking on Friday in Turkana, the outspoken legislator rubbished the claim. He claimed that the deputy president was to blame for the divisions in the ruling party that has led to the creation of two factions.

Kamanda mounted a strong defence of the Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga. He held the view that the former prime minister had brought the peace and stability that the Kenyan head of state President Uhuru Kenyatta needs to govern.

"I heard the deputy president saying that Raila should take responsibility for the divisions in Jubilee, the person to blame is none other than William Ruto, " the nominated member of parliament.

"He is the one who made it extremely difficult for the president to work and deliver for the people of Kenya. Were it not for Raila, the president would have been thrown out of government."

The ruling party is in the throes of a civil war spawned by disagreements between the allies of the president and his deputy. Divisions have been around the Building Bridges Initiative agenda that the head of state and his deputy have been pushing. The Tangatanga faction of the ruling party has mounted strong opposition to the BBI agenda. The group says that the BBI agenda is not of paramount importance.

Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta shook hands on the steps of Harambee House in 2018, ending the political stalemate that followed the 2017 presidential election. The two leaders committed to working together to bring the country together. Those against the handshake claim that the two leaders came together with the view of securing their political interests after 2022. They have rubbished the claims that BBI is all about their political interests.
