DP Ruto intervenes as divisions in Jubilee get nasty

Deputy President William Ruto, called for peace among Jubilee party members asking them to focus on ways in which they would unite Kenyans.

Speaking at a church service at the Chepngobop Methodist Church Kericho the DP urged its members to stop grumbling and enganiging in divisive politics.

"I want to ask all the Jubilee leaders to go back to the ideals which informed the formation of the party. We no longer want to hear the bickering and confrontational politics. We want to find a way of uniting all Kenyans. We no longer want to give the press fodder to fill pages with claims that Jubilee is divided here and there. All Jubilee leaders must stop grumbling." He said.

He was accompanied by Governor Paul Chepkwony and Members of Parliament Nelson Koech (Belgut) Sylvanus Maritim (Ainamoi)

“They tried to crucify me through trumped-up charges at the International Criminal Court (ICC) but I decided to pray instead. This was in order to move the country forward and remove hatred and tribal politics and for the last seven years. God had been faithful to me," said Ruto.

The tension within the Jubilee Party arose after the handshake between President Uhuru and opposition leader, Raila Odinga birthing to the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.

Belgut Member of Parliament Nelson Koech, demanded the President to give a strict timeline to complete the BBI report since the country doesn't need to waste a lot of time discussing it.

Koech added that issues affecting tea farming, education, infrastructure development among others were the issues that ordinary Kenyans require leaders to pay urgent attention to.
