Uhuru Kenyatta Yet to Convene Meeting on Jubilee’s Future Amid Power Struggles


The Jubilee Party has been facing internal strife and open power struggles, with former President Uhuru Kenyatta remaining silent on the matter. Although he was elected as the party leader for a second five-year term in February 2021, he has been hands-off since retiring, allowing former Ndaragwa MP Jeremiah Kioni to take the spotlight.

However, Kioni’s time in the limelight was short-lived as he was suspended by the National Executive Committee due to allegations of gross misconduct, along with the treasurer Kagwe Gichohi and vice chairman David Murathe. In response, the suspension sparked even more controversy within the party, with different factions forming among the MPs.

Some officials remain critical of the current administration led by Deputy President William Ruto, while others have warmed up to him. This was seen as several friendly MPs met with Ruto at State House on two separate occasions in January and February 8. The most recent meeting saw Ruto speaking with 32 Jubilee MPs, who pledged their support for the government.

Despite the support from some members, Uhuru has yet to convene a meeting to discuss the future of the party. Until then, it remains unclear what the future holds for Jubilee and how the current power struggles will play out.
