BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,17TH JUNE 2018- A section of Jubilee Party leaders have told Opposition leader Raila Odinga, to stop attacking Deputy President William Ruto.
Odinga had on Saturday faulted Ruto for engaging in premature campaigns for 2022.
However this seems not to have gone down well with Jubilee luminaries.
Led by Senate Deputy Speaker Kithure Kindiki, the leaders told Odinga to keep off the activities of the Jubilee Party, accusing him of being bent on extending the wrangles and confusion in NASA to Jubilee.
“I want to tell Raila Odinga not to extend the confusion and wrangles that have made NASA to be in tatters to Jubilee, because we are organized as far as leadership is concerned,” said Kindiki.
He went on: “As Jubilee, we are not campaigning for 2022 or any other year but touring the grassroots to explore ways of addressing challenges facing the people as well as launching water, health, churches among other projects.”
His sentiments were echoed by Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu who branded Odinga as an insincere leader who wants to wreck Jubilee.
“I know Raila Odinga than anyone else and can’t be trusted. He is banking on a referendum to amend the Constitution to create positions for people like him. But I want him to know that the President has said there will be no referendum, and that’s all,” said Waititu.
The leaders were speaking on Sunday at the Pentecostal Church of East Africa (PCEA) and St Benedict Catholic Church, Thika, Kiambu County, where the Deputy President was present.
