Friday June 21, 2019 - Mumias East MP, Bernard Washiali, has sensationally claimed that Jubilee Party Secretary-General, Raphael Tuju, has been ignoring his calls lately.
This comes at a time when the party seems to be limping and on the verge of collapse, especially after President Uhuru Kenyatta’s rant against Deputy President William Ruto and his allies last Sunday.
A section of members allied to Deputy President William Ruto have been calling for a Parliamentary Group (PG) meeting to iron out the increasing differences between their side and that of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
But in a statement to Kenyans, the National Assembly Majority Whip claimed that all his attempts to reach the SG over the issue have been futile, alleging that the former Rarieda MP is not picking his calls.
“I have been approached by members.”
“I tried reaching Tuju but he did not answer my calls,” Washiali disclosed.
However, Tuju has dismissed Washiali’s statement stating that nobody has approached him on the issue, adding that the right channels must be followed.
“People should be genuine when they call for a PG meeting.”
“It should not be like they are spoiling for a fight.”
“We want constructive meetings,” he said.
