The Jubilee Party has announced that Deputy President William Ruto is no longer welcome to the party headquarters a day after he stormed the Pangani offices with over 30 MPs.
Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju also noted that Ruto ceased to be Deputy Party Leader the moment he sanctioned the opening of the Jubilee Asili Centre.
The decision was reached after a National Management Committee meeting on Friday.
The party’s NEC will soon meet to adopt the same.
Tuju described Thursday events at party headquarters as an attempted power grab in the absence of President Uhuru Kenyatta who is in France on official duties.
“We would like to be absolutely clear, that we serve one President at a time. The DP, a self-declared 2022 presidential candidate, will not be allowed to use the party Headquarters as a centre of operationalisation of his campaigns and for intimidation,” Tuju said.
The SG said it is no longer tenable for the DP to use the party platform to advance his divisive so-called ‘hustler’ politics that are counter to the party and the President’s platform of uniting the country and fighting corruption.
