Senate Majority Whip Irungu Kangata has explained the process of discussing Jubilee Party Secretary General Raphael Tuju’s proposal on Deputy President’s ouster as the ruling party Deputy Party Leader.
Mr Kangata, Muranga Senator who sits at the Nec said the proposal is yet to be brought forward but said they will first discuss the proposal and then advise the next action.
Speaking at Kandara Primary School where he donated foodstuffs to the less fortunate, the majority Chief Whip called on the Jubilee party allied leaders to respect Mr Tuju saying he is the bonafide Secretary General of the Jubilee party and his pronouncements must be respect by all.
“Mr Tuju is the Secretary General for Jubilee party and his directives and guidelines must be adhered to by all, outburst against him is unwarranted and uncalled for,” he said.
The (NEC) consists of the following members: all National Officials, the National Advisory Council members, National Assembly Leader, Senate Leader, Chairpersons of the Party Parliamentary Caucuses, Chairperson of the Governor’s Caucus, The Party Whips in Senate and National Assembly and Secretary to the Parliamentary Group.
NEC also has representation from National MCA Caucus, Women’s League, Youth League, Persons with Disabilities League; National Diaspora League, The National Council of Elders and The Jubilee Foundation
Other members include the National Business Council, Executive Director and Deputy Executive Director.
The Senate leader castigated the move by Dr Ruto and his Tanga Tanga leaders’ decision to storm Jubilee party headquarters saying the move was unfortunate as the leaders should concentrate on service delivery and not side shows.
He said it was too early for campaigns and advised Dr Ruto and his battalions to first concentrate on uplifting the lives of poor Kenyans instead of engaging in 2022 Presidential elections.
“It’s sad that Dr Rut stormed Jubilee at a time when the President was soliciting development funds for our good country, I urge leaders to complement the President’s efforts by uplifting the lives of Kenyans just like my efforts in Kandara of giving food to the poor,” he added.
During the function, over 500 locals received food donation from philanthropic Kangata who has continued to be a blessing to the down trodden families in Muranga.
“There was a season for food donations from politicians who were wooing us for votes but since then we don’t see them in our area, we remain grateful to our Senator for his acts of mercy,” Mr Mwangi Kamau a beneficiary of the food program told our news desk.
