DAILY POST: RUTO’s goose is cooked as TUJU echoes MURATHE‘s statement – RUTO is not the automatic candidate for Jubilee Party in 2022




Monday December 31, 2018-Jubilee Party chairman, Raphael Tuju, has
said Deputy President William Ruto is not the party’s choice to succeed
President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.

The
announcement by Tuju, a man who has the president’s ear, could further rock the
ruling party in the wake of a brewing storm sparked by its vice chairman David
Murathe.
In an
interview with Citizen TV on Sunday, Tuju said the choice
of candidate is governed by the party’s
constitution which makes no mention of an automatic presidential ticket as
postulated by DP Ruto’s allies.
“We have a president who is
the party leader and we have a deputy President who is the deputy party leader…
So that line -up is there, but we also have a constitution indicating how we
appoint our candidate for a presidential candidacy and as far as I am concerned
nothing has changed,” Tuju said.
The DP has already declared
his intentions of succeeding his party boss at the helm of the country’s
governance structure.
Ruto’s hopes of occupying
the house on the hill are strongly pegged on an expected support of the man he
aims to succeed.
But the move by Jubilee’s
Vice-chairman and Uhuru Kenyatta’s ally David Murathe to discredit a 2022
covenant sealed in 2012 and reiterated in the run -up to the last presidential
contest is raising many questions.
