After a rather embarrassing loss during Thursday’s Kiambaa constituency by-election, President Uhuru Kenyatta is set to convene a meeting with his demotivated Jubilee lieutenants this coming Wednesday.
According to reports, the meeting, which will be held at the party’s Pangani office, will be aimed at finding solutions in order to save the party from total collapse ahead of the upcoming 2022 General Elections.
This comes amid backlash from a number of the party’s key members who blame top officials for the Kiambaa loss and want them to pave way for fresh leadership.
Jubilee’s SG Raphael Tuju and Deputy Vice Chair David Murathe have been identified as the key problem for the ruling party with some leaders such as Laikipia Woman rep Cate Waruguru now threatening to shift allegiance to other parties if issues are not solved soon.
However, in his defense, Murathe has blamed campaigners for bungling the by-elections while adding they will have to account for the money they were given for campaigns.
He further added that he would not allow Tuju to be bullied yet he spent his own money.
Do you think Murathe and Tuju are to blame for Jubilee’s misfortunes? And do you think Wednesday’s crisis meeting will solve these issues or is this the start of the end for the ruling party?
