Herman Manyora: The death of Jubilee is a strategy to destroy Ruto.
Political analyst Herman Manyora says that the Jubilee party fallout is a scripted scheme to dominate prominence over Deputy President William Ruto.
Manyora says that the Jubilee party leaders had initially planned the fallout and are playing according to script.
"The death of Jubilee is by design, the owners of Jubilee wanted to destroy it as a strategy to deal with Ruto, it is just according to script," he said in an interview with Citizen TV.
"If you see many parties formed across the country, the strategy is to ensure that in places where you will not sell Jubilee, have a local party there. Then mobilize people, put them together and make them safe from William Ruto and hand them over to the handshake team," he added.
Manyora further said that the leaders who have been decamping from Jubilee party are aware of the strategy.
At the same time, he lashed out at Nyeri governor Mutahi Kahiga claiming that he is among those not aware of the game plan.
"There are those governors who don't know the game. There are those who know and are part of the game. In between, there are those who are confused, people like the Nyeri governor belong to that category. The game is right before his eyes and he is not able to decipher it," said Manyora.
Governor Kahiga yesterday hinted at joining the UDA party, claiming that he is the only governor from Mount Kenya left in the Jubilee party, which is becoming lonely.
Manyora claims that the Jubilee party's elected leaders are now forming smaller parties in order to comply with the 'game,' as he refers to it.
"The game is so simple, if you cannot get the mountain to fight Ruto within Jubilee, split it into smaller units by having those smaller political parties and that's what those four governors have done," he said.
Four governors from the Mt. Kenya region on Saturday said that they would be leaving the Jubilee party as part of a new political alliance to be announced soon.
The governors: James Nyoro (Kiambu), Lee Kinyanjui (Nakuru), Francis Kimemia (Nyandarua) and Nderitu Muriithi (Likipia) said that the new outfit will bring on board new players from across the political divide ahead of the 2022 polls.
