Acheni vitisho baridi – Murkomen dares Tuju, Murathe to summon Jubilee party leader President Uhuru for supporting ODM

Elgeyo Marakwet County Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has dared Jubilee party Secretary-General Raphael Tuju and Vice Chairman David Murathe to summon President Uhuru Kenyatta for supporting the Opposition party Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party.

Murkomen was reacting to the threats made by the duo of punishing officials and members of Jubilee for going against the party’s constitution.

In a tweet on Saturday 23 January 2021, the sharp-tongued legislature suggested that he was ready to answer charges of disloyalty to the party.

“I dare Tuju and Murathe to jointly summon Jubilee Party Leader for supporting ODM and Kipchumba Murkomen for supporting UDA to the Party Headquarters to answer charges of disloyalty. Wacheni vitisho baridi,” he tweeted.

Murkomen’s dare comes a few days after a section of Jubilee party members and officials disclosed that they were ready to remove William Ruto as the second in command for going against the party.

On 22 January, former Gatanga Member of Parliament David Murathe while speaking to a local publication said things were cooking that it was just a matter of time before DP William Ruto and his allies lose their seats for pushing for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) agenda.

He argued that the politicians going against the party cannot claim to be a part of it yet they field other candidates against the party’s candidates in by-elections.

A few days ago, Jubilee Party Nakuru Branch Secretary-General Peter Cheruiyot gave William Ruto an ultimatum of seven days from January 21 to 28 to give the reason why he should not be punished by the party.

He added that failure to adhere to the ultimatum, action will be taken against him along with Nakuru County Senator Susan Kihika.

The two were accused of drumming up support for UDA candidates in ward elections in London Ward and Hells Gate Ward in Nakuru County.

Tuju on the other hand had earlier acknowledged that the party’s disciplinary committee was well aware of the proceedings.

The party’s SG said that such matters are up to the disciplinary committee to look at whether there is any flouting of the Political Parties Act and the party’s constitution and take the necessary action where they deem necessary.

Two weeks ago, Amani National Congress (ANC) party threatened to initiate an impeachment motion against the DP accusing him of undermining the President.
