Jubilee Party Vice Chair David Murathe has said his mission in the ruling party is over, adding that he is now ready to leave the outfit.
Speaking during an interview on Wednesday, Murathe noted that his mission was to kick our rebels from the party, adding that he’s happy they’ve found a home in UDA.
According to Murathe, this was his main task and having accomplished it, he feels it is the right time to leave his position at the party.
He, however, noted that he still has one pending task which is to ensure the Deputy President does not make in-roads into the Mt Kenya region which is the political bedrock of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
"Our job was to push those who do not believe in the dream of the party out. I am happy they have found a house called UDA. Our work is done.
"We are all in an interim capacity and soon we will be releasing a timetable on how we will start campaigns for the party positions from the ward level to the national level. Myself, I am not interested in any position moving forward," he said.
Murathe’s remarks come amid growing calls for an overhaul in the Jubilee party leadership owing to its increased loss in by-elections across the country.
A section of leaders want Jubilee Party elections held and the current leadership replaced in a bid to inject new blood and ideas into the outfit.
One such leader is Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru who noted that the party needs to do a thorough overhaul before 2022.
“The rains have beaten us. Our fortunes are dwindling. Intense introspection is demanded,” Waiguru said in a recent statement.
