Senator Sakaja Reacts to Murkomen’s Revelation of disunity in Jubilee

Two Jubilee Party Senators now seem to be reading from different scripts over the apparent simmering cracks in the governing party.

While Nairobi lawmaker Johnson Sakaja maintains all is well within Jubilee, his boss at Senate Kipchumba Murkomen holds a contrary opinion.

Speaking during a fundraiser at Narok county on Sunday, Sakaja said the ‘marriage’ between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto marked by the folding of their parties- The National  Alliance (TNA) and United Republican Party (URP)- was still working smoothly without hitches.

“I was a young man serving as TNA Chairman when the union between the two leaders was formed. My URP counterpart Francis Ole Kaparo and I exchanged caps as a sign of unity. The sole objective of dissolving the two parties was to unite all Kenyans, and nothing has changed,” the Senator said.

But speaking during an exclusive interview with Citizen TV on Sunday, Murkomen contradicted Sakaja’s position and confirmed that indeed there were camps in the governing party.

He accused some ‘powerful people in government’ whom he said were hellbent at creating a wedge between the President and his deputy in a wider plan of sabotaging Ruto’s ambition to clinch power.

“We have a concern about the existence of a small wing of individuals serving within government at the Office of the President, government ministries who are spending most of their time to plant discord in the Jubilee Party,” said the Senate Majority Leader.
