DP Ruto has suffered another blow after President Uhuru ordered Jubilee party Secretary General Raphael Tuju to denounce the much publicized Naivasha retreat.
Jubilee Party has distanced itself from the Naivasha retreat held by a section of legislators allied to Deputy President William Ruto.
Through a press statement on Monday, January 28, the ruling party’s Secretary General Raphael Tuju, stated that the Naivasha retreat was not a Jubilee Parliamentary Group meeting as opposed to Gatundu South MP’s Moses Kuria prior sentiments.
However, the party maintained it had no problem with such meetings and the legislators are welcome to hold their rallies.
Tuju further clarified that a party meeting can only be held in accordance to the article 9 part 7 of the party constitution and is chaired by the party leader or such other party leader that the president may delegate.
“Any resolutions of any meeting not convened in accordance with the provisions of the party Constitution are therefore not official party resolutions,” said Tuju.
The statement came barely hours after over 170 legislators led Senate majority leader Kipchumba Murkomen gathered in Naivasha to plan on how to counter Raila Odinga’s influence in BBI campaigns.
