The Jubilee Party has denied media reports that it will hold a crisis Parliamentary Group Meeting today, Tuesday, July 3rd.
In a statement on Monday afternoon, Party Secretary General Raphael Tuju said there is no crisis to warrant a meeting. He said he learned of the planned meeting through the media.
“After due consultation and after speaking with our Parliamentary Majority Leader Hon. Aden Duale, I am able to confirm that there will be no Jubilee Party Parliamentary Group meeting tomorrow,” said Tuju.
Tuju, however, said the ruling party will in the next few weeks announce strengthening programmes that include the launch of a party academy after approval by the party leadership.
He described reported wrangles within the Jubilee party as a storm in a teacup and emphasized that the party has one President and a deputy as he accused the media of misleading the public.
Media reports had indicated that the purported meeting would discuss rifts between the allies of President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto.
