DP William Ruto Meets ‘Rebel’ Jubilee MPs As Jubilee Asili Is Revealed In The Bitter Uhuruto Divorce

Deputy President William Ruto today met with Jubilee MPs who were removed from various parliamentary committees after being perceived to be rebellious to President Uhuru Kenyatta.

While the meeting was going on, blogger Dennis Itumbi revealed a banner similar to that of Jubilee Party, but branded Jubilee Asili and with a new slogan, Sote Pamoja. The slogan for the original Jubilee Party is Tuko Pamoja, and the new development is perceived to be a public revelation that the much talked about Jubilee fallout could be happening sooner than expected.

The new logo shared online by blogger Dennis Itumbi.

DP Ruto confirmed holding the meeting, saying that the MPs “were recently assigned other responsibilities in the party”.

“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 ,” tweeted Ruto.

The Jubilee Asili Centre, where the meeting was held, is not in the normal Jubilee offices opposite Pangani along Thika Road.
