Jubilee party Vice Chairperson David Murathe has announced plans to exit his position at the Jubilee party, stating that his sole mission has been accomplished.
The controversial Vice Chair told NTV in an interview that his mission at the ruling party had been completed and what remained is to quit while he is ahead.
According to Murathe, his major task at the ruling party had been push out members allied to Deputy President William Ruto who he has on several occasions accused of bringing chaos in the party.
He boasted of his “successful mission” claiming that he has since pushed the Tanga Tanga brigade out of Jubilee and forcing them to find a home in the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party.
“Our job was to push out those who do not believe in the dream of the party. I am happy they have found a house called UDA. Our work is done,” Murathe stated.
He also stated that the party will embark on an aggressive plan to bring on board new leaders to revamp the party as he exits the scene.
“We are all in an interim capacity and soon we will be releasing a timetable on how we will start campaigns for the party positions from the ward level to the national level. Myself, I am not interested in any position moving forward,” he stated, confirming his exit plans.
Murathe however, relayed that he had one more task before the official exit.
According to the abrasive party leader, he is focused on destabilizing DP Ruto’s grip on the Mt Kenya region.
DP Ruto has been making inroads in the Mount Kenya region backed by youthful leaders such as Irungu Kang’ata, Moses Kuria, Ndindi Nyoro and Kimani Ichungwah.
His charm offensive has paid off with his Hustler Nation candidates sweeping to victory in a number of by-elections in the region.
