DP Ruto calls on Jubilee affiliate parties to join new party

Deputy President William Ruto has urged all Jubilee Coalition affiliate parties to disband and join Jubilee Party that will be launched in September.

Speaking in Rongai Constituency, Nakuru County, the deputy president called on Rift Valley residents to dump independence party KANU and support Jubilee party in 2017.

“As you saw yesterday (Friday) we took the instruments to join all the 13 parties that make up the Jubilee Government to make one national party by the name Jubilee Party,” he said.

“We have all decided that in 2017 Kenya’s president will be Uhuru Kenyatta and you already know the party manifesto,” he added.

The deputy president took a swipe at the opposition CORD coalition saying the coalition has lost its way and has no clear leader.

“Our competitors have lost their way, they don’t know who their leader is,” he quipped.

At the same time, the deputy president announced that the national government would install 45 milk-cooling plants at a cost of Sh500 million in Nakuru County, adding that after that they will focus on value addition.

He further added that the national government has equipped the Nakuru county Referral Hospital with a dialysis machine and an MRI machine to ensure medical services are accessible to all residents.

“We want to ensure you can access medical services near you. Health centres and dispensaries will be run by the county government but we will take care of the county hospital,” he said.

Ruto was accompanied by Nakuru Governor Kinuthia Mbugua and a host of Jubilee MPs.
