War Of Words In Jubilee Party Deepens, Members Forcing Tuju To Resign.



The war of words in Jubilee Party deepened with Naivasha Mp Jane Kihara calling on the embattled secretary general Raphael Tuju to resign.

While backing Deputy President William Ruto in the ongoing fight, Kihara said that they would not be cowed by Tuju. On Friday, Tuju hit out at the DP after he stormed Jubilee House saying that he should be kicked out as the party deputy leader But speaking in Naivasha, Kihara adherent support told the DP termed Tuju as the stranger in the troubled party.

She said that Ruto was among those who fought for the creation of the party and was free to visit Jubilee house anytime he wanted.

“Its laughable to hear Tuju calling on the DP and some Mps to keep away from Jubilee House yet we are the one that pays for the rent and his salary,” she said.

She challenged Tuju to resign and seek for the position of the SG if he felt that he was popular in the party. Kihara was speaking in Kayole estate in Naivasha during a ceremony to open the area Chief office which has been constructed by CDF.

On Youths and women funds, she called area constituents to apply for more as the government had released funds to every county. “Naivasha has already received Sh1.5m towards the two groups and there is another Sh5m pending towards assisting our youths and women,” she said.

Nakuru County Youth enterprise manager Joshua Mureithi said that they had already released Sh70m in the county while another Sh20m was waiting. He noted that after the pandemic had eased the number of applicants had increased mainly among youths and women in rural areas.

“During the pandemic we had a problem with loan payments. It we have seen this change as more youths and women apply for these loans,” he said. Former Lakeview MCA Simon Wanyoile termed the funds as a game changer to hundreds of youths and women in the constituency.

While thanking the Mp for the chief’s office, he said that this would go along way in addressing the issue of administration and security. “We are asking the county government to address the high business permit fees charged to youths involved in business as many cannot afford this,,” he said.
