Huge Blow To Ruto And His Warriors As Jubilee, ODM Coalition Talks Renew Plans To Eject Him From Jubilee Party Post

The ongoing coalition talks between the ruling party and the opposition’s Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) have added impetus to the bid to remove Deputy President William Ruto as Jubilee’s deputy party leader.

Jubilee Party officials allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta said the DP’s tenure is increasingly becoming untenable given that the deputy party leader’s post is critical to coalition negotiations.

The party’s technical team will meet on Friday to review plans to revamp the party, suggesting renewed urgency to clean up the divided house, with officials saying the plot to kick out Dr. Ruto has a November deadline.

Jubilee deputy secretary-general Joshua Kutuny said the deputy party leader’s post will play an active role in negotiation with other parties ahead of next year’s polls, which makes it illogical to leave the position in the hands of “an enemy”.

Mr . Kutuny, who is also Cherang’any MP, told the Nation that, given the recent attacks on the party by the dDeputyPresident, it is set to replace him.

“We are going to have a meeting this Friday as the party’s technical team. This will give us the way forward on areas we need to focus on,” said Mr. K.utuny.
