Deputy president William Ruto on Tuesday, September 22 made an impromptu visit to Jubilee Party Headquarters at Pangani.
The DP’s visit was the first in as many weeks even as the rift in Jubilee Party widens.
The DP was accompanied by Lang’ata Member of Parliament Nick Korir and met with a number of Jubilee Party officials and supporter staff.
The development comes at a time the country is embroiled in a heated debate after CJ David Maraga through an advisory letter asked the president to dissolve parliament for failing to comply with the two-thirds gender rule.
Observers say that Ruto and Tuju are seeking to find a truce after weeks of animosity between Kieleweke and Tanga Tanga sides after two Mps insulted the President and former First Lady Margaret Kenyatta.
Reports indicate that Tuju was away from the office at the time the DP made the visit.
In June, a section of the DP’s allies resorted to opening another office dubbed ‘Jubilee Asili’, citing their being denied access to resources at the Jubilee HQ.
While updating Ruto’s activities at the party headquarters, Tanga Tanga blogger Dennis Itumbi said that the DP was there in preparations for upcoming by elections.
“DP William Ruto at Jubilee Pangani Headquarters to supervise plans by the Party on the scheduled By-Elections….Voters will elect new MCAs in Kahawa Wendani in Nairobi county, Kisumu North and Lake view (Naivasha), Dabaso (Kilifi) and Wundani/Mbale wards in Taita Taveta. A new MP will also be elected to replace Suleiman Dori of Msambweni…” said Itumbi through his social media pages.
The Jubilee Deputy Party Leader while at the headquarters had time to share a cup of Kenyan Coffee with staff at Jubilee House.
