Bahati MP weighs in on ongoing wrangles within Jubilee party

Bahati Member of Parliament Onesmus Kimani Ngunjiri has weighed in on the ongoing Jubilee wrangles.

Addressing media in Nakuru, Ngunjiri said the Party has mechanisms and guidelines that should be adhered to.

“The Party has mechanisms and guidelines and this is what should be followed to avert the wrangles” said Ngunjiri.

The vocal Nakuru Legislator has also slammed COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli for attacking Jubilee Party as well as the Deputy President William Ruto during the Labour Day celebrations.

Ngunjiri says the wrangles in Jubilee Party can only come to a halt if the President will crack the whip and say no to all the sideshows.

He says the wrangles can be stopped with just one utterance from President  Uhuru  Kenyatta who is also the Jubilee Party Leader.

“All that is happening within Jubilee can be put to an end by just a word from the President who is also the party leader” said Ngunjiri.

His sentiments coming just two days after  Secretary General Raphael Tuju published the contested list of National Management Committee members.

Tuju published the names in a local daily on May 2.

They are Lucy Nyaguthii Macharia, Marete Marangu, Walter Nyambati, Jane Nampaso and James Waweru.

Deputy secretary Caleb Kositany, an ally of Deputy President William Ruto,  accused Tuju of disregarding their wishes and breaking the law for the second time.

He said the Registrar of Political Parties wrote to Tuju asking him to activate the party’s dispute resolution mechanisms when the list was disputed, but he did not.

He maintained that the names as illegal since the people on the list are not members of the NEC.

Kositany insisted that they will continue to demand for a dispute resolution meeting to resolve the matter.

Kositany further dismissed as fake a list of Jubilee MPs who have been invited to State House on Tuesday.

The list doing round on social media indicates 58 MPs have been invited by Uhuru for a meeting and none of the legislators allied to Ruto are in it.
