Jubilee party Secretary General Raphael Tuju has hit at Deputy President William Ruto over the abusive languages being used by his allies against some leaders in the country.
In an interview with Citizen tv on Wednesday night, Tuju said that he tried to convince the DP to come out and clear the air regarding the matter.
He said he spoke to Ruto about the behaviour of some of his allies, including Kapsaret MP Oscar Sudi and Emurua Dikirr’s Johanna Ng’eno who had uttered insults at President Uhuru Kenyatta and former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta.
“I called Deputy President this afternoon and we had a discussion on it and I did make my position very clear that because some of the things are being done on his name or using his name, he has to come out and express himself,” Tuju said.
Tuju said Ruto’s defence that he had spoken out against the legislators’ action on Twitter did not fly, adding Kenyans would not be satisfied with tweets.
However, Tuju stated that on reaching out to Ruto, the DP mentioned how he had been targeted by Jubilee Party vice chairman David Murathe, who had linked him to the Kemsa saga as well as painting him as a corrupt individual unworthy of holding the country’s top seat.
Tuju however, maintains that Murathe’s issue is nothing compared to the insults hurled against the first family.
“The issue of Mama Ngina cannot be compared to that of Murathe… she is nobody’s peer,” Tuju said.
He added that the issue of Murathe’s utterances would be addressed.
