A confusion was evident yet again in Jubilee Party on Thursday, October 1, 2020, when the Deputy President alongside 38 allied MPs paid an impromptu visit to the party’s headquarters while the party leader President Uhuru Kenyatta is outside the country on an executive mission. 

The unusual event was termed by President Kenyatta’s allies as a ‘coup,’ considering it as part of the DP’s scheme to recapture the party from his boss.

However, the DP refuted those claims, stating that he and the 38 MPs are certified members of the party and need nobody’s approval to visit the headquarters. The DP also said that he has resolved to work from the headquarters at least twice a week to eradicate the party ‘hijackers’. 

The Thursday visit was the third time the DP was seen at the Jubilee headquarters within two weeks. The DP registered concerns that the party was being taken away by cartels, and that he is working hard to deny them that chance by putting a spirited fight regain control of the outfitted party. 

Deputy President Dr. William Ruto further clarified that his mission is to ensure maximum restoration of order at the Jubilee Party despite the quite evident rift between him and his party boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta. 

Legislature Linturi cleared the air around the nature of their unplanned visit to the party’s top office by stating that non-of the people in the attendance was a non-Jubilee member and that they thought it wise to visit the headquarters and share ideas.

 However, the deputy president warned that the party is yet to go through a tough transition time because there is an evident division at the top leadership. 

The impromptu visit at the party headquarters when the president is outside the country raises eyebrows and creates an unsolved puzzle about the actual nature of leadership and politics in the Ruling Party, which should be leading by example.
