Jubilee leaders on Sunday, June 17 accused ODM party leader Raila Odinga of intending to derail the party with his constants attacks on Deputy President William Ruto.
Despite the handshake which all but changed the Kenyan political landscape in March 2018, the only loophole has been the strained relationship between Ruto and Raila.
The two leaders have not met eye-to-eye and have differed on several crucial points of national interest.
As TUKO.co.ke reported, Raila during the Eid Baraza in Mombasa, once again defied Ruto by insisting a referendum was on the cards.
He also discredited the DP’s 2022 presidential credentials, saying the fact that Ruto received massive endorsements countrywide did not make him a favorite.
Barely hours after Raila’s sentiments and Jubilee leaders hit back, accusing the NASA leader of attempting to bring confusion to the ruling party.
They spoke at the Pentecostal Church of East Africa (PCEA) and St Benedict Catholic Church, Thika, Kiambu County where they questioned Raila’s real intentions after making amends with Uhuru.
The leaders, led by Kiambu governor Ferdinand Waititu, accused Raila of being an insincere politician due to his constant attacks on Ruto – a Jubilee party member since Uhuru’s first term in 2013.
Senate deputy speaker Kithure Kindiki warned Raila against meddling in Jubilee party affairs, adding that the party was very stable prior to the handshake.
“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,” he said.
He further defended Ruto’s alleged “loitering”, saying the DP was not campaigning but simply looking to solve the common mwananchi’s issues from ground level.
“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," he went on.
Kikuyu lawmaker Kimani Ichung'wa also took on Raila by claiming he was intimidated by the DP hence the constant attacks.
“I don’t know why Raila Odinga panics when William Ruto devolves the recent handshake to benefit all Kenyans at the grassroots,” Ichungwa said.
