Deputy President William Ruto’s supporters have dared the Jubilee party to remove their United Democratic Alliance party from the coalition pact.
Jubilee wrote to the parties’ registrar requesting cancellation of their agreement with the Party of Development and Reforms, currently the United Democratic Alliance.
Ruto’s supporters have on numerous occasions claimed they do not do anything wrong by supporting UDA since it is a Jubilee partner. They noted that they would not challenge Jubilee’s decision in court since it would be a waste of time.
The Ruto die-hards noted that they are very ready to defend their seats in by-elections if Jubilee succeeds.
“Some of us are even ready to defend our seats. Let them go on and do whatever they want,” Oscar Sudi, the Kapseret MP, said.
“Let them not think that we are fools for investing in UDA. We will even be better off if UDA does not have any Jubilee association,” he added.
Jubilee’s move to end their deal with a deal with PDR threatens the seats of most Ruto supporters. The law stipulates that members of a party cannot champion another party’s interest or agenda.
Raphael Tuju defended Jubilee’s decision to cut its links with UDA.
