Deputy President William Ruto on Thursday confirmed his lunch meeting with members of the Jubilee Party who were removed from various house leadership positions.
“Had lunch with Jubilee MPs who were recently assigned other responsibilities in the party. Thanked them for exemplary service to the party and the nation.
“I implored them to continue focusing on Jubilee’s people-centered transformational agenda now and in the future. SOTE PAMOJA,” Ruto posted hinting at the formation of the alleged Jubilee Asili break-away outfit.
A day after the Jubilee Party signed cooperation agreements with Wiper Democratic Movement (WDM) and Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM), a new break-away outfit dubbed Jubilee Asili has emerged.
Former State House Director Dennis Itumbi, associated with Deputy President William Ruto’s Tanga Tanga faction, was the first to share images taken from what he called the Jubilee Asili Centre.
The outfit’s logo features a striking resemblance to the Jubilee Party logo, with yellow and black colours, clasped hands symbol retained and the corresponding font type.
Itumbi went on to claim that on the afternoon of Thursday, June 18, Ruto met his allies who were recently removed from leadership positions in Parliament at the Jubilee Asili centre.
“DP William Ruto currently meeting all the recently de-whipped legislators at The Jubilee Asili Centre.
“Message – Let us now play our role on other matters now that you are free of Parliamentary leadership responsibilities. Move from boardrooms and interact with the Hustler Nation,” Itumbi wrote.
Earlier in the day, Ruto had toured Dagoretti in Nairobi where he interacted with leaders of various youth groups and donated equipment to help them engage in various businesses during Covid-19.
