Saturday, June 20, 2020 – President Uhuru Kenyatta is said to have been amused by Deputy President William Ruto’s decision to register a new party on Thursday.
Dr. Ruto, with the assistance of Soi MP, Caleb Kositany, indicated that they want to register Jubilee Asili party which will be his political vehicle as he tries to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.
Though millions of Kenyans celebrated the formation of Jubilee Asili, Uhuru and his political advisors were taken aback by Ruto’s decision to form a party.
Barely hours after Ruto announced the new party, Uhuru moved quickly and snapped two political heavyweights, Isaac Ruto and Kalonzo Musyoka, in a move expected to vanquish the Deputy President.
Uhuru also moved swiftly to take charge of Western Kenya politics by ordering Interior Coordination Cabinet Secretary, Fred Matiang’i, to oversee the immediate completion of all stalled projects in the region in a move that will diminish the political fortunes of Ruto in the region.
Ruto is believed to have made huge inroads in Mt Kenya, Rift Valley and he is almost capturing Western Kenya which has been enslaved by ODM Party leader, Raila Odinga.
