Following a number of by-election losses and a number party leaders being kicked out in the recent months, the ruling Jubilee Party is back at the drawing board in a bid to turn around its dwindling support.
Insiders and legislators allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta have kicked off grassroot mobilisation to once again popularise the party.
Deputy secretary general Joshua Kutuny attributed the party's misfortunes to lack of substantive structures like adequate regional offices and the failure to replace Deputy President William Ruto's allies who were kicked out.
“We have many people who want to propagate the agenda of the party and give it a new face but they have not been given that opportunity,” Kutuny said.
He noted that the shortage of regional offices and officials has crippled the party's ability to gather political intelligence and keep grassroot activities afloat.
Kutuny assured that the party's leadership is currently addressing the issues that have seen Jubilee turn to a political "laughing stock" in the recent polls.
"We have raised them before and they are on the table. They have to be addressed to revamp the ruling party,” he said.
“We are going to fill those positions. We have identified 25 counties where we will refurbish existing or open new offices at the constituency and county levels.
"We are waiting for the Kiambaa by-election to come to an end. We will recruit new members,” Kutuny stated.
He revealed that the party will rebrand ahead of the 2022 general elections.
“We will do away with the logo of the party and see if we will retain the slogan and colours or change them,” Kutuny stated.
Jubilee has since lost a majority of its elected leaders who have declared support for DP Ruto and propelling agendas of other parties including UDA and PEP.
