Jubilee Party Deputy Secretary General and Cherengany Member of Parliament Joshua Kutuny has said his constituents are supporting President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga as the country heads to 2022 general elections.

Speaking exclusively to People Daily Digital, Kutuny said the "ground is saying UhuRao".

Kutuny, who clarified that he is attending United Nations Environmental Conference in Scotland, raised eyebrows when he missed Jubilee Party key events this week.

"Listening to the ground is very important, " Kutuny wrote on his Facebook page on Thursday.

On Monday, Jubilee Party leadership called a press conference at its headquarters in Pangani and addressed a myriad of issues including the upcoming National Delegates Conference (NDC).

The press conference did not sit well with Jubilee members who have since shifted their allegiance to United Democratic Movement (UDA) which Deputy President William Ruto is expected to use to vie for presidency next year.

While addressing a roadside political rally in Kiambu yesterday, the DP called out the party leadership for "mismanaging" the outfit which formed government in 2017.

"They should apologise for running down our party. What are they telling us now when all they did was to kill a formidable party that we built and invested a lot in? They have given us a lot of work to go and form another party. Watu bure kabisa (useless people)," the DP said.

On Thursday, Jubilee Party parliamentary caucus responded to Ruto's sentiments saying the upcoming NDC will consider removing him as the deputy party leader.
