Deputy President William Ruto, on Sunday, warned MPs and other politicians interferingÂ with Jubilee affairsÂ to ‘keep off’.
Speaking during a church service in Naivasha, the DP affirmed that theÂ reports of disquiet in the party were non-issues.
â€śI ask those interfering with the affairs of the party to keep off. As a matter of fact, there is no contest in Jubilee. There is only one leader in Jubilee. Any other person outside that framework is a liar,” he stated.
Accompanied by over 40 MPs, Ruto further urged party members to respect President Uhuru Kenyatta as he was the party leader.
â€śJubilee is a party of diversity and national outlook that stands on the foundation of transforming Kenya. As such, all Jubilee leaders must focus on its agenda,â€ť he added.
Echoing his sentiments, Kiambu Governor Ferdinand WaitituÂ called on politicians to avoid divisive politics and tone down on controversial statements.
â€śLet us all engage in politics of empowering people. There are no issues in Jubilee as is being portrayed out there.
â€śThe discourse in the party is for the good of this country. Jubilee will achieve its objectives as originally laid out when it was founded,â€ť he explained.
Also present was Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui who asked leaders to focus on engaging in development projects to transform the county.Â
â€śWe need to channel our energies on fighting poverty and creating opportunities for everyone,â€ť he stated.
