BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,2ND JULY 2018-Jubilee party secretary general Raphael Tuju says the party was united turning down reports in a section of the media that the party was falling apart.
Addressing the press at the party’s headquarters in Nairobi on Monday,Tuju has however admitted that factions allied to president Uhuru Kenyatta and deputy president Willa Ruto have differed lately on several issues that have emerged.
But he says this was expected considering the fact that Jubilee party had over 220 members of parliament and also the majority membership in both houses.”Jubilee party has more members in parliament with 223 MPs and you know we have been around for only 2 years and a big house such as ours differences are normal but it does not mean we are disintegrating”.he said.
Tuju also said the reported planned meeting between president Kenyatta and Jubilee members on Tuesday will not be there but the party will be announcing a preferred date for a retreat to address the imaging issues.
He added that the most important mandate before the party was to deliver on the big four agenda of the current administration.”We are committed to helping to push forward the achievement of the big four agendas of the jubilee government which is the most important to us now”.he said.
