Deputy President William Ruto Tuesday made a surprise visit to Jubilee party headquarters in what appears to be a change of tact in efforts aimed at addressing growing mistrust within the party.
Details of the afternoon visit remains scanty with reports indicating that Ruto held a meeting with senior party officials. The DP remained coy on his mission at the party headquarters only saying that he was attending to party matters.
Lang’ata MP Nixon Korir is seen in one of the photos shared by the DP on his twitter account.
Ruto seemed to have dropped any hard feelings going ahead to state that Jubilee is a national party founded on the principles of inclusion, cohesion and transformation.
“Jubilee is a national party that is founded on the principles of inclusion, cohesion and transformation of our country. Our politics is driven by ideas that are people-centred” Ruto stated.
The latest development comes in the wake of wrangling within the ruling party that have seen rival camps emerge with one faction in support of the deputy president’s quest for the presidency with the other appearing to be pulling all stops to halt his presidential ambitions.
Jubilee is a national party that is founded on the principles of inclusion, cohesion and transformation of our country. Our politics is driven by ideas that are people-centred.
