Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi has warned contestants who are interested in vying in the 2022 general elections against seeking the Jubilee Party ticket.
Speaking on Tuesday during an event in Meru County, Kiraitu Muringi declared that Jubilee was finished.
"We are supporting Uhuru's government because we're in Jubilee even if it is dying. Wait for Jubilee in the next elections, it will be a very weak party. If you want to lose the elections stand with Jubilee in 2022," the Meru Governor told the crowd.

Kiraitu went on to confirm that he would not defend his seat on a Jubilee ticket as he did not want to lose the governor's seat.
He insisted that it was up to the leaders to look ahead as Jubilee was the past and people had to face the future.
Kiraitu Murungi stated that the Ameru people had to look beyond 2022 and analyse the post-Uhuru situation as they wanted to be part of the government after the 2022 elections.
Governor Kiraitu Murungi is one of the Mt Kenya leaders who have announced their support for national Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi's presidential ambitions.
Leaders from Mt Kenya East are said to be working on creating their own political vehicle that could split the vote in Central Kenya.
In early July, Governor Kiraitu hinted that he could revive his party, the Alliance Part of Kenya more popularly known as 'Bus'.
