Over three quarters of elected Jubilee MPs have threatened to eject the party’s Secretary General, Raphael Tuju, from office, barely a week after the Registrar of Political Parties rejected his request to change the membership of the National Management Committee, the COUNTY DIARY Reports.
The Registrar of Political Parties, Madam Ann Nderitu, in a letter to Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju on Friday declined to add five new members to the top decision making organ.
And now, party MPs most of whom wrote to the Registrar protesting Tuju’s proposed changes have demanded that their party boss quits.
According to Majority Leader in the National Assembly, Aden Duale, it is time for the leadership of the ruling party to put its house in order.
He said they will file petitions for Tuju’s removal if he cannot quit on his own.“Tuju will forcefully be dragged out of office if the situation escalates,” said Duale.
The members, a majority of whom are Deputy President William Ruto’s allies, blamed Tuju for the wrangles in Jubilee.
“We are no longer interested in his services.”“He has become the source of problems.” Majority leader hon aden said.
“The President can retain him as the CS without portfolio but for us in the party, enough is enough. “The rule of law must be respected, Duale added.
