Former Jubilee Party Vice Chairman David Murathe has come out strongly to deny claims that he has ditched the ruling Jubilee Party led by President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto.
Speaking on Citizen TV’s News Night Show on Tuesday night, Murathe indicated that he resigned from his position in the party, but not the party.
“I have not left Jubilee. I left the position of Vice Chair. I on my own volition felt that my stay in the party was untenable,” he said.
Murathe resigned as Jubilee Vice chair in early January after being quoted saying that he intends to stop the Deputy President (DP) from being elected President in 2022.
According to him, Ruto will have served two terms like the president by 2022, and is not viable to vie for the top seat in the country.
He threatened to move to the Supreme Court to seek a constitutional interpretation in order to stop the DP from contesting for the presidential post.
However, the former legislature claimed that he does not have any personal problem with Ruto.
“I do not consider that I have at a personal level a problem with the DP. He is a very nice guy. I have a problem with his modus oparendi.
“Remember in politics there are no permanent friends or permanent enemies,”Murathe said.
