8 Things that have forced Jubilee MPs to demand meeting with Uhuru

Jubilee MPs vow to make it happen

President Uhuru Kenyatta

Jubilee MPs allied to Deputy President William Ruto want the party to call for a parliamentary meeting to address grievances in the party.

MPs have vowed to push for the meeting saying that it has not been held since the 2017 general elections.

Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi noted that during Jubilee’s first term they would be called for PGs four times a year but since the party came back to power for a second time they have not had any meeting.

Part of the issues the MPs want to discuss is the 2022 succession plan, the handshake with Opposition leader Raila Odinga and the referendum.

Party was lagging  behind 

Jubilee MPs claimed that the party was lagging behind when other parties have already identified presidential flag bearers or are in the process of forming alliances.

Naivasha MP Jayne Kihara said it was apparent the party now has three factions that are causing confusion.

MPs pointed out that party unity is crucial, hence the need for a meeting to help end political squabbles that led to the creation of Tangatanga and Kieleweke factions.

Kieleweke's take

The legislators in the party also want to deliberate on the referendum proposals so that they can take a common stand should it take place.

Subukia MP Kimani Ngungiri said it was important for Jubilee Party to plan for the grassroots elections.

Other MPs said the PG would be appropriate to address delays in disbursing funds, including those meant for the National Government-Constituencies Development Fund (NG-CDF).

However, the Kieleweke faction sees no need for an urgent meeting.
