Deputy President William Ruto, on Sunday, warned MPs and other politicians interfering with Jubilee affairs to ‘keep off’.
Speaking during a church service in Naivasha, the DP affirmed that the reports of disquiet in the party were non-issues.
“I 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.
“Jubilee 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,” he added.
Echoing his sentiments, Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu called on politicians to avoid divisive politics and tone down on controversial statements.
“Let us all engage in politics of empowering people. There are no issues in Jubilee as is being portrayed out there.
“The discourse in the party is for the good of this country. Jubilee will achieve its objectives as originally laid out when it was founded,” he explained.
Also present was Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui who asked leaders to focus on engaging in development projects to transform the county.
“We need to channel our energies on fighting poverty and creating opportunities for everyone,” he stated.
