New twist in Jubilee Party row
Addressing the press after a meeting in Eldoret, the legislators drawn from 11 counties in Rift Valley revealed that they would compel all Jubile party members from their areas to suspend all subscriptions paid to the party thereby starving it of cash.
“We are going to withhold any subscriptions that we are paying to that Jubilee party” the legislators stated.
Should that strategy fail, the MCAS threatened that they woud mobilize their colleagues from across the country to Jubilee party leaders from office.
Below is the video of the legislators addressing the press in Eldoret.

Well-placed sources close to the Jubilee party leadership confirmed to a local daily that “There is little communication from the two. There is some mistrust between them.”
At the center of the frosty relations is mistrust over 2022 succession politics amidst concerns that Mount Kenya region may fail to support DP Ruto.

In the wake of the remarks, a section of Jubilee party MPs demanded that President Kenyatta should publicly declare if his earlier pledge to have DP Ruto succeed him still stands.
