This afternoon I joined my fellow @JubileePartyK MPs on a meet the people tour in kiambaa and we interacted with UDA supporters along the way. I am pleased that as a country we have a vibrant democracy where we can hold different views and still maintain peace. pic.twitter.com/qHF5B4NjeO

As reported by The People Daily, a section of Kiambu Jubilee political party members have accused its vice-chair David Murathe of running the outfit like personal property and called for his immediate resignation.
They said that party Secretary General Raphael Tuju should as well be sent parking claiming that the duo is to blame for the party’s waning popularity.
They spoke in the Kiambaa sub-county on Saturday during a party consultation forum where they formulated how to campaign for the party’s candidate Kariri Njama ahead of the area parliamentary by-election slated for July 15, 2021.
The members laid bare their frustrations in the hands of the party’s top organs as they campaign for the candidate but exuded confidence that the party will garner 70 percent of the votes.
Jubilee so far has unleashed its best soldiers to try and win the Kiambaa seat which was left vacant following the death of Paul Koinange who succumbed to cancer.
