National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi is set to unveil the party he will use to contest for the 2022 Presidential ticket.
In conjunction with Meru governor Kiraitu Murungi, the National Assembly Speaker is on a mission to revive the Restore and Build Kenya Party.
The process of changing the Restore and Build Kenya Party officials is underway as the registrar of political parties has already notified the public of this intention.
Watson Kimathi, a close ally of Kiraitu Murungi is the new leader of the party, with Embu Senator Lenny Kivuti holding the national chairman position.
Since his coronation at the Mukurwe wa Nyagathanga shrine on May 22, the National Assembly speaker has been keen on taking over the Mt. Kenya East leadership.
Together with Governors Kiraitu Murungi(Meru), Martin Wambora(Embu) and Muthomi Njuki(Tharaka Nithi), Justin Muturi aims at ensuring Mt. Kenya East region is at the Centre of power in 2022.
From their recent stunts, it is evident that National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi and Kiraitu Murungi are slowly walking out of the Jubilee Party.
In his book titled Beyond Politics, Kiraitu Murungi said that Jubilee Party is dead calling for its burial.
“The (Jubilee) party is full of horror stories only told in private, behind closed doors. Jubilee is involved in a terrible orgy of suicides, fratricides and infanticides,” Kiraitu Murungi wrote.
The Meru Governor, later on, declared that he will leave the ruling Party since it has no capability to fulfill his political dreams.
“As things are now, the Deputy President is on his own with the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party, and the President is about to retire. Since I am not retiring, I need a horse to take part in the horse race,” Murungi said.
On the other hand, National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi is focused on his own presidential ambitions.
With this dream, Muturi doesn’t see Jubilee Party as the right vehicle to take him to great political heights.
