Jubilee Party Vice Chairman David Murathe disclosed to a local daily that “You cannot be a leader in Parliament and not support the position of the Party Leader. The President is ready to discipline any member of the party who goes against its manifesto and policies."

“We are asking them to reduce the amount of politicking and concentrate on the Big Four. If we are successful on the big four, it will only be good for succession path of the DP," Murathe added.

A National Governing Council meeting planned for next month has however been called off. According to Murathe, the party is not facing a crisis to warrant such a meeting and the parliamentary Group should put its act together by sitting down and thrashing out the issues.

Divisions in Jubilee have been fueled by concerns that the ongoing onslaught on corruption with DP Ruto’s camp alleging that they are unfairly being targeted and the fight against corruption is being used to settle political scores.

Concerns have also been raised that Mount Kenya regain may not support DP Ruto’s 2022 bid with several leaders from the region warning that support for the DP in 2022 is not guaranteed.
