Deputy President William Ruto has taken a swipe at the ruling Jubilee party for plucking its MPs from key parliamentary jobs.
Speaking on Sunday, July 25 at St Joseph Catholic Church in Rurii ward, Nyandarua County, Ruto blamed a few persons within the party for sabotaging Jubilee's mandate and goals.
"Trouble in the party begun when those who were given the responsibility by President Uhuru Kenyatta to lead messed up. They sent away members and even kicked most of them out of Parliamentary committees," Ruto said.
The DP then crticised his party for kicking out her members from key parliamentary committees and assigning the positions to Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) legislators.
"You saw that Jane Kihara, the MP for Naivasha was ejected from the joint Trade and Agriculture Committee and replaced by Babu Owino, yule wa matusi mingi," Ruto said.
"The chairperson of the Finance committee, for this party of ours is Glady's Wanga wa matusi mingi," he added.
The DP further stated that he and others chose to embrace the hustler nation after their stay in Jubilee became untenable.
"Our Jubilee party was hijacked by those from the NASA coalition and since we didn't want to lose track of our mandate to serve Kenyans, we decided to try another way," Ruto said.
