Jubilee Party vice-chairman David Murathe has reacted to Deputy President William Ruto’s decision to launch Jubilee Asili Center.
Murathe through Facebook on Friday said the move was an indication that the Jubilee Party had successfully managed to weed out what he described as “political leprosy” that has been attacking President Uhuru’s agenda.
“For a very long time, Uhuru’s Jubilee Party agenda has been attacked by a political leprosy by the name jubilee Asili. But, after massive fumigations, we have successfully separated and our focus now is delivery of services and ensuring we unite this country,” Murathe, a fierce critic of DP Ruto, stated.
He added: “We are therefore urging patriots to refrain from contracting this disease.”
Ruto launched the center on Thursday in Nairobi’s Kilimani area and hosted about 20 MPs who were recently kicked out of parliament leadership and committees.
The Jubilee Asili Centre will serve as a meeting place for DP Ruto allies who have been denied access to the Jubilee Party headquarters in Pangani, according to Elgeyo-Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen.
“It is the Centre for Jubilee Party members who believe in the original idea of the party, including the implementation of the promises we gave to the people,” Murkomen said.
Jubilee deputy secretary-general Caleb Kositany (Soy MP) described the Centre as a “new home.”
Jubilee Asili has adopted the slogan “Sote Pamoja” instead of the Jubilee Party’s “Tuko Pamoja.” In addition, the outfit has replaced colors in the Jubilee logo and features black in the place of red.
