Wednesday June 24, 2020 – Deputy President William Ruto’s new political party by the name Jubilee Asili is a hoax and is going nowhere.
This was revealed by Nyeri Town MP, Ngunjiri Wambugu, who strongly criticized the emerging Jubilee Asili outfit perceived as a break-away party by Ruto and his Tanga Tanga allies in the Jubilee Party.
Wambugu maintained that contrary to claims by allies of the DP, they had not been blocked from accessing the main Jubilee Party headquarters in Pangani, Nairobi.
He argued that the newly established Jubilee Asili Centre where DP Ruto met de-whipped legislators could only be compared to a private club.
Wambugu further claimed that plans to register Jubilee Asili as a party were abandoned after receiving backlash from some quarters when the centre was unveiled.
Supporters of the Deputy President had already begun pledging support for Jubilee Asili and its widely shared slogan ‘Sote Pamoja‘.
Allies of the DP including Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, Bahati MP, Kimani Ngunjiri, and former Kakamega Senator, Boni Khalwale, have been spotted at the centre engaging in various meetings.
Kuria has maintained that the centre was established for party members to figure out how to live up to the original ideals of the Jubilee Party, hence the name Asili which means original in Kiswahili.
However, Wambugu claimed that MPs and Senators who recently lost their positions were trying to use Jubilee Asili to paint themselves as victims.
He advised them to follow the example of former National Assembly Majority Leader, Aden Duale, who gracefully left his position after being replaced by Kipipiri MP, Amos Kimunya, on Monday.
