Jubilee leadership is considering expelling Deputy President William Ruto from the party for associating himself with another political outfit.
The Standard reports that the party's National Management Committee (NMC) met on Thursday and resolved that disciplinary action be taken against Ruto and his allies.
Ruto, who is Jubilee’s deputy party leader, is accused of ditching the ruling party and advancing the agenda of the newly formed United Democratic Alliance (UDA).
Jubilee Chairman David Murathe stated that expulsion is one of the disciplinary actions that could be taken against Ruto and his associates.
“Those leaders pushing for the agenda of UDA, including the DP himself, will lose their seats. Just wait, things are cooking,” Murathe told The Standard.
Murathe argued that the leaders cannot claim to be part of Jubilee yet they are pushing the agenda of another party by fielding candidates against Jubilee candidates in various by-elections.
Reacting to the report, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen said President Kenyatta should equally be summoned for supporting ODM candidates.
“I dare Tuju and Murathe to jointly summon Jubilee Party Leader for supporting ODM and Kipchumba Murkomen for supporting UDA to the Party Headquarters to answer charges of disloyalty. Wacheni vitisho baridi,” Murkomen said through Twitter.
