Last week, Jubilee Party leader Uhuru Kenyatta declared that former Prime Minister Raila Odinga was his party leader.
Speaking in Luanda, Vihiga County, shortly after attending the burial of former Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha in Siaya County, Uhuru said he would continue to rally behind the Azimio chief in his fight for the unity and liberation of all Kenyans.
But in an interview on Inoro TV, nominated MP Sabina Chege wondered whether the Jubilee party had since been pawned to Raila’s party ODM.
She accused the former Head of State of running the former ruling party as his private entity and him to come clean on the way forward.
The former Murang’a Woman Rep said that Jubilee Party members have been seeking the former president countless times to offer them guidance, but he has remained aloof.
“As we waited for his leadership, we saw him aboard a truck in Kisumu (after Prof George Magoha’s burial ceremony) declaring that his party leader was ODM’s Raila Odinga,” she said.
Chege, who was among the 30 Jubilee party members who met President William Ruto at State House said Uhuru has done nothing to find his thrown to his heir in the vote-rich Mt Kenya region.
“You did nothing to build us to become accomplished leaders compared to how we are seeing other party leaders do,” she added.
She said lack of leadership in the once most popular party has seen the outfit being taken over by some of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party members.
Chege said ex-president Uhuru Kenyatta has not shown any seriousness to the affairs of the party, leading to the ongoing upheavals as two groups now fight for its control.
