The Jubilee Party is set to hold a National Delegates Convention on November 30, 2021.

Party national Secretary General Raphael Tuju said the party will review, formulate and approve the outfit's policies.

He added that they will also consider, amend or ratify the party's regulations to ensure compliance with the Constitution, the Political Parties Act and the Elections Act.

Tuju added that they will also consider other matters referred to the NDC by the National Executive Committee or the National Governing Council

Meanwhile, the failure of the party to hold the NDC has prompted divisions inside the party, with one faction backing President Uhuru Kenyatta and others supporting his Deputy William Ruto.

“The NDC is the highest party organ and whatever it decides prevails, the rule is, we must give a notice of 21 days because our party leader has a very busy schedule,” Jubilee Secretary General said. 

As the party's differences deepen, supporters of Ruto have called for Tuju's resignation as Secretary General, blaming him for the party's downfall.

“My position as the Secretary General is very important for you and Kenyans to appreciate that this is a political office I would be a very worried person is someone or if nobody expressed dissatisfaction with my work, I would be a  very worried person if nobody was hitting me every other day because that would mean that the office of the Secretary General is not important and that is why I welcome the criticism,” he said.

With only eight months until the August 2022 General Election, the Jubilee party has yet to choose its presidential candidate and has already confirmed its alliance with former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, who is likely to run under his Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party.
