Jubilee party vice-chairman, David Murathe has disclosed the conditions that will make him support Deputy president, William Ruto, 2022 presidential ambition.
According to Murathe who has on many occasions declared his dislike for the DP, if the Jubilee party nominates DP to be their preferred 2022 presidential candidate then he will support in order to defend his party loyalty.
Murathe went ahead to state that if by then he will still be a member of Jubilee party and they nominate DP, he will have no choice but to support him.
“We deal with a secret ballot and I said before that I was against governor Mike Sonko being the governor of Nairobi but because the party position was that we were going to vote for the president, the governor, senator, MP and Mca, I ended up voting for Mike Sonko because I wanted to be true to myself,
If the DP is the candidate of Jubilee party and I am still in Jubilee I’llvote for him,” he said.
Murathe who was hosted at KTN TV by Akisa Wandera insisted that as National Management Committee of Jubilee party, they have never made any recommendations for the removal of the DP from the position of the party’s deputy leader, saying that all they’ve ever made are the recommendation to discipline errant members.
“We can’t go there, the DP and the president are the people who brought us together and we don’t go there. But the rest of them like the members like majority leader Duale, Washiali, Murkomen, Kindiki those we can remove but not the President and DP, not those two,” he said.
He also disclosed that the Jubilee party is a party that will be there for the next 100 years since it is a party that learns from successful political parties outside the country.
