Jubilee vice-chairman David Murathe says the time has come for him to leave the ruling party.
Murathe, who spoke during an interview on NTV, said he successfully completed his mission of kicking out Deputy President William Ruto and his allies from Jubilee.
Having done his job, Murathe feels it is time to get a well-deserved break from the party leadership but he still has one unfinished business—kicking out Ruto from the Mt. Kenya region.
“Our job was to push those who do not believe in the dream of the party out. I am happy they have found a house called UDA [United Democratic Alliance]. Our work is done,” said Murathe.
Murathe, who is said to be a close ally of President Kenyatta, said his exit will pave the way for the recruitment of a new leadership team.
“We are all in an interim capacity and soon we will be releasing a timetable on how we will start campaigns for the party positions from the ward level to the national level. Myself, I am not interested in any position moving forward,” he added.
