Tuesday July 2, 2019 - Deputy President William Ruto has joined his allies in calling for President Uhuru Kenyatta to convene an urgent Jubilee Party meeting.
Ruto’s allies have in the recent past demanded for an urgent meeting to help the party iron out its differences that commenced in March 2018 shortly after Uhuru and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga resolved to work together and shook hands to symbolise their unity.
According to reports, Ruto is now urging the President to discuss four pertinent issues when he assembles the meeting, among them the March 9th handshake with Raila.
The other issues that Ruto reportedly demanded the President to address include party divisions, war on corruption and plans for 2022 elections.
Speaking at the Presbyterian Church of East Africa St Luke’s Church in Embakasi East Constituency on Sunday, the DP outlined the importance of the meeting because it would renew the party’s primary function of uniting and transforming Kenya.
He added that Jubilee should not be left behind when the other parties meet up to discuss development plans.
“We are a multiparty democracy.”
“We must, therefore, organise ourselves around national political parties with issues, programs and policies,” argued Ruto.
