Dennis Itumbi, the State House Digital Communication Director has weighed in on former Jubilee Vice Chairman David Murathe’s remarks that President Uhuru Kenyatta is going nowhere.
In a tweet on Sunday, Itumbi said that it is evident that Murathe wants ODM leader Raila Amolo Odinga to defect to Jubilee so that he can contest for the Presidency.
Murathe also argued that nothing can stop the President from coming back as Prime Minister of this nation after his tenure in office ends.
“Mr. Murathe, brilliant strategy. In other words, You will get @RailaOdinga to defect to Jubilee as the condition to support his 2022 Presidential run. Well thought. I wish you well, Tinga is just Murathe’s puppet & you said it in Public. Standing Ovation,” he tweeted.
On Friday, Raila said that he is not part of Jubilee and he has no plans to join the party in future.
“I’m not in Jubilee Party and I am not planning to join the party. The Deputy President and President Kenyatta have their own issues that I can’t interfere with.
Not only the Deputy president will vie for the presidential seat in 2022, but there will also be other many people.
(Siko kwa chama cha Jubilee na sina nia ya kujiunga na chama hicho. Naibu Rais na Rais Kenyatta wana mambo yao na siwezi ingilia kati. Wengi watawania kiti cha urais 2022 sio naibu rais tu,” Raila said.
