President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto have been asked to resign and seek a fresh mandate from the electorate after the formation of a new party-Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP).
Council of governors chairman Isaac Rutto said the two are promoting a new political party contrary to the political parties Act which does not allow members to advance or sell the policies of another party before resigning from the party that sponsored them.
On Friday, the United Republican Party (URP) and The National Alliance party (TNA) announced that they had merged into a single entity.
The two partiesâ€™ Secretary Generals, Onyango Oloo (TNA) and Fred Muteti (URP) while making the declaration said the move was to ensure unity for all Jubilee affiliate parties ahead 2017 general election.
But speaking to the press in Bomet town on Saturday during the county cross country athletics competition, Rutto accused Jubilee leadership of contravening Political Parties Act. He said the two parties did not consult elected leaders saying the two had hidden agenda in the move.
â€œWe are lost and now confused. What remains now is for the two top leaders to resign and get back to the electorates. They are promoting a new party which was not in existence before the last election which is very wrong, what will happen to the rest of the members?â€ he asked.
He said he was surprised by what the partiesâ€™ top organs did saying it was a big blunder.
â€œWe are totally dismayed by the sudden turn of events. As far as I am concerned there was supposed to be a formal, concrete and wide conclusion reached among the bonafide members of the relevant parties before such a move is made. It is quite chaotic that our members in URP were not aware of this,â€ said Rutto
He said he is not part of the new outfit since he was never consulted.
