Thursday May 14, 2020 – Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju has accused Senators Kipchumba Murkomen and Susan Kihika for attempting to blackmail President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Speaking yesterday, Tuju noted that the two, working on Deputy President William Ruto’s whims, had been agitating for a PG with the intention of distracting and intimidating the President from working on Government programmes.
“They thought they had a majority of people supporting them and so they agitated for a PG hoping they could intimidate and blackmail the President to be distracted from his agenda.”
“They rang the wrong number,” Tuju said during an interview.
At the same time, Tuju laughed off attempts by Murkomen and Kihika to move to court to have their positions reinstated saying it was unreasonable to think that one could forcefully work for the President.
“Some of these people have no honour.”
“You cannot serve the President by force.”
“This Government belongs to President Uhuru and you cannot insist that you represent his interest by force.”
“So you go to court so that you can serve the president by force? Does that even make sense?” Tuju wondered.
