Powerful Uhuru Ally Makes Final Decision On Tuju, Murathe's Future in Jubilee Party

Even when it seemed that their positions in the ruling Jubilee Party were safe, there is a renewed bid to oust Secretary General Raphael Tuju and vice chairman David Murathe.

Tuju and Murathe came under sharp criticisms following the party's humiliating by-election defeat in Kiambaa, a week ago.

With several elected Jubilee Party leaders turning the heat on Murathe and Tuju, the duo was asked to resign or risk being forcefully ejected from office.

But after three days of blame game, Tuju and Murathe were spared with the party's top brass declaring that no one would be sacrificed following the Kiambaa poll loss.

But even before the dust can settle, Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui has now called for the immediate resignation of Tuju and Murathe.

Speaking on Saturday, Kinyanjui said that Tuju and Murathe had mismanaged the party and that their time is up.

According to Kinyanjui, a key Uhuru confidant, Jubilee Party needs complete overhaul ahead of the next general election.

The Nakuru Governor says that elected leaders remain the most important stakeholders in the party leadership and that their voice should be respected.

Though Tuju and Murathe had declared that they would not step aside as called by top party elected leaders, the statement from Governor Kinyanjui should worry them. Perhaps, this could be the end of the road for them.
