I'm still Jubilee Vice Chairman - David Murathe says in surprise announcement

I will continue serving

Former jubilee party vice chairman David Murathe

Former Gatanga MP David Murathe on Monday announced that he remained the substantive Jubilee Party Vice Chairman despite a purported resignation which he read out to the media last year.

Murathe said his resignation letter was not acknowledged by President Uhuru Kenyatta who is also the Jubilee Party Leader.

The outspoken official said those who may have doubts on his standing are free to confirm the official list of Jubilee party officials at the office of the Registrar of Political Parties.

He added that he would continue serving the party unless President Kenyatta accepts his resignation.

I wrote a resignation letter to the President who is the Jubilee Party leader and the appointing authority but I have not received a response from the President indicating whether my intention was accepted or declined. This means that I’m still the party’s vice-chairperson and I will continue discharging my duties and responsibilities in the ruling party. I wish to assure Kenyans that despite Mr Tuju’s hospitalization, the party is stable and its affairs are running well.

Anyone doubting whether I’m still the party’s vice-chairman should confirm with the Registrar of Political Parties and will know that I’m still in charge. As at now, the party is intact but in the near future we shall have a new political formation which will actualize the desire of the President to leave behind a united country where no community will not feel left out and where there will be no post-election violence in the future,” he told the Nation by phone," Murathe told the Nation.

On Saturday, the former MP told a public rally in Meru that Tuju would be returning to the country this Wednesday having recuperated after a road accident last month.
