President Uhuru Kenyatta will have a big decision to make upon his return from France.
According to reports, the decision to kick out Deputy President William Ruto out of Jubilee Party will be at the top of the Agenda once he returns to the country.
President Uhuru who is expected to return from France today, will have his first meeting with his political aides on Monday, October 5, 2020.
According to sources, the Jubilee Party National Management Committee (NMC) will present the recommendation calling for DP Ruto be kicked out of the party to the president in the Monday’s meeting.
The team also suggested President Uhuru, who chairs the National Executive Committee (NEC), to ban Ruto from setting foot at the Jubilee party headquarters in Pangani and have the budget to his office slashed.
Should the plan fail, the NMC has also suggested an impeachment motion be initiated to have Ruto kicked out of government.
This came after President Uhuru’s allies led by party Secretary General Raphael Tuju accused Ruto of attempting to grab the party in the absence of the President.
Tuju stated that in consideration to DP’s latest actions, the party’s NMC recommended to NEC to strip him out of his deputy party leader position and ban him from using party headquarters.
“The DP turned up at the party headquarters with more than 30 MPs, many of them known abusers of the president…foul-mouthed MPs that are on record attacking government projects like Huduma Namba. That move almost created an ugly confrontation.
“The NMC has recommended to NEC that the DP ceases to be Deputy Party Leader after he opened the so-called Jubilee Asili offices that are reserved for him and his allies until such a time this development of the Jubilee Asili is discussed at the NEC,” Jubilee Secretary-General Raphael Tuju announced on Friday, October 2.
Party Vice-Chairman David Murathe had claimed that Ruto was on his way out of the ruling party.
According to Murathe the DP’s roles had been transferred to Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi confirming his sidelining from government.
