New twist as DP Ruto slapped with new deadline to resign





Deputy President William Ruto has been slapped with a November deadline to resign as Jubilee’s Deputy Party Leader or face an embarrassing ouster.

To this end, the Jubilee party has convened a meeting on 02 July 2021 to strategize on how to kick him out as he has publicly declared where his heart is in UDA and is currently campaigning actively against Jubilee’s candidate.

Also on the chopping board are his allies who declared that they won’t move out of Jubilee until 2022 when Uhuru’s tenure ends. 

Cherangany MP and Jubilee Deputy Secretary-General Joshua Kuttuny added that Ruto’s post (Deputy Party Leader) will be integral in the ODM-Jubilee negotiations and they are keen to eliminate him in the party as the talks may stall if Ruto is included in the agreements. “We are going to have a meeting this Friday, June 2 as the party’s technical team. This will give us the way forward on areas we need to focus on. 

“We have a clear strategy that will shock many people when the right time comes. The President has an elaborate plan that will completely destabilize any opposition that will be facing his team,” Kutuny stated. 

The party also intends to roll out an aggressive plan to endear itself to the public after a section of its members lamented that the party is broken and was losing touch with the common mwananchi. 

“The rains have beaten us. Our fortunes are dwindling. Intense introspection is demanded. We have a much younger generation dominating the electorate. 

“Our outlook and strategies must suit the times and so we must be willing to step out of our comfort zone and embrace new ways of thinking and doing,” Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru posted on social media in early June. 

Commenting on the plans to have him leave Jubilee, Ruto noted that “It would be the biggest act of betrayal if I was to walk away from eight million Kenyans who voted for us”.
