This comes at a time the Head of State is believed to be brokering a truce between the One Kenya Alliance principals and ODM leader Raila Odinga as he seeks to craft a winning team ahead of the 2022 succession politics.
Taking to Twitter, Kositany told President Uhuru Kenyatta to finish his term and go adding that Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto will not resign from the Jubilee as asked by the president.
“William Ruto will not resign. The one who abandoned the ruling party for the opposition should just finish and go. Ruto would never have killed Jubilee party, and taken the carcass to ODM,” he said.
The legislator was referring to President Uhuru’s apparent close working relationship with his main challenger in the 2013 and 2017 presidential elections Raila Odinga.
Raila Odinga was technically crafted into government after the 2017 General Election through the early 2018 famous handshake which sidelined Uhuru’s deputy president and turned him into a mere spectator in government affairs.
According to Kositany, Jubilee was once the most powerful and organised political party before it was brought down by a few ardent supporters of the President as well as the inclusion of Raila Odinga and ODM into government affairs.
The outspoken legislator’s statement was sparked by President Uhuru’s sentiments during a televised interview where he indirectly asked his deputy to resign if dissatisfied with how the government was running.
“I have an agenda that I was elected on and that work must continue. It will be hounorable that if you are not happy with it, you would step aside,” President Uhuru said in an indirect attack at his deputy William Ruto.
Jubilee’s party fortunes have been on a downfall spiral as witnessed in the recent by-elections where the party has lost in most of its strongholds.
In June, senior counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi opined that the Jubilee party, an outfit that was once popular among many Kenyans is totally dead.
“Jubilee has no future. I think (Jubilee party vice-chairman David) Murathe can have the carcass if he will be there (when if finally dies),” he said.
Since the Jubilee party began losing seats in the by-elections, things have not been good and this has been occasioned by a series of members switching their allegiance from Jubilee to its rival parties.
The recent Jubilee diehards to shift their allegiance include Kiambu Woman Rep Gathoni Wa Muchomba and his Laikipia Counterpart Cate Waruguru.
Their exit from the Jubilee party has caused a great deal of controversy with Nyeri MP Wambugu Ngunjiri warning that the party could lose more valuable members by the time we approach the next General Election if urgent measures are not instituted.
