Tanga Tanga politicians are once again on President Uhuru Kenyatta’s throat as the wrangles at the ruling Jubilee party escalate.
The faction allied to Deputy President William Ruto has now resulted in using a myriad of damaging revelations with the latest being a scathing attack on Uhuru’s niece Nana Gecaga.
According to a Sunday Nation report, the DP Ruto camp is accusing Ms. Gecaga of “conflict of interest” in an exposè on how a company associated with her was awarded a multimillion-shilling tender to supply key campaign materials in the run-up to the 2017 elections.
Moreover, Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri has castigated the Head of State for constant humiliation of his deputy after he alleged the president was sending people to insult the DP and that he would be held responsible for any skirmishes which might erupt during his regime and the next election.
According to the vocal legislator, the International Criminal Court at The Hague, Netherlands, was watching Uhuru and he would be one of the people who will go to the court and never come back.
All this recent rhetoric is a move by the Tanga Tanga team to fight back the party’s Secretary General Raphael Tuju’s decision to make official the controversial changes at the National Management Committee.
As analysts point out, the once vibrant and youthful Jubilee Party is headed for a very messy divorce that will see long-held secrets laid bare to the public.
Even as the country continues to fight the deadly coronavirus that has infected 465 people already, the supremacy battle between these two leaders is set to jeopardize not only the government’s development agenda but also the borrowed unity brought about by the handshake between Uhuru and his former political nemesis Raila Odinga.
With the heavy investment on propaganda by bloggers from Ruto’s side to smear the government and make it look corrupt and out of touch with the plight of the people after the second in command was isolated, it will be interesting to witness what transpires next as more beans are set to be spilled by the two sides.
