Jubilee party deputy Secretary-General Caleb Kositany has demanded President Uhuru Kenyatta's attendance at the Nakuru BBI rally scheduled for March 21, 2020.
Uhuru must attend Nakuru BBI rally - new demand issued from Jubilee party
Trust issues within Jubilee party
The Soy legislator stated that the politicians from the region will not submit their proposals to handshake partner Raila Odinga.
"The President is the elected leader, the chief executive of Kenya and there is a big thing called BBI going on and he cannot leave it to people who are strangers to those of us who voted for him en masse.
"This was a noble idea, but the person selling it is doing a terrible job of it and the good product is now suffering low sales. The President should therefore take charge of these rallies as a matter of urgency. He can even decide to stop them altogether because they have become ODM rallies," Kositany advised.
If not Uhuru, then Ruto
The Jubilee party official further outlined that should the President fail to attend, Deputy President William Ruto will be the only other acceptable alternative.
"The DP should be on hand to receive the document because we will not hand it to a stranger," he stated, throwing a subtle jab at the ODM party leader.
DP Ruto did not attend any of the past BBI rallies: Kisii, Mombasa, Kitui, Kakamega, Narok, Garissa and Meru.
He, however, had stated that he does not require anyone's permission to attend the political events.
"Wewe ni nani sasa unatoa ruhusa ya watu kwenda mkutano ya BBI (who are you to give people permission to attend BBI rallies)," he stated recently referring to the former Prime Minister.
