There is no longer a political party known as Jubilee - Moses Kuria

Moses Kuria reveals why he has decided to work with DP party

Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria on Tuesday made a declaration that the Jubilee party was no more.

The legislator who was following a TV discussion between Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen and National Assembly Minority Leader John Mbadi made the observation that the ruling party had lost its place.

"It is now clear that there is no longer a political party known as Jubilee. Respect Baba," Kuria tweeted, suggesting that Special AU envoy Raila Odinga was behind the neutralization of the ruling party.

Mbadi - Murkomen face-off

A number of viewers who followed the discussion between Senator Murkomen and Mr Mbadi observed that the Senator had taken a hard stance against the ongoing fight against corruption while Mbadi was a big proponent for the crackdown.

The apparent support for the President by Mbadi and perceived opposition to the President by Murkomen continued to play out as they discussed specific cases that are under invetsigation.

"I want to tell the president that he has many supporters. He should not despair in the war against graft," Mbadi stated.

The Senator took issue with DCI following President Uhuru Kenyatta's declaration for corruption cases to be reported to the investigators instead of politicians throwing jabs during funerals and weddings.

He stated: "The DCI is being used to selectively malign names of individuals, to selectively ‘bastardise’ projects that are in certain regions…My position on this will not change."

Mbadi responded: "If Murkomen says he has no faith in the DCI, yet the president says he has confidence in the DCI, he is saying what is contrary to the president. As leader of majority in senate, he should support the president."
