Murathe who had appeared on Live Tv explained that there was a group of people behind the Chaotic nominations in the party which was part of the rigging plan.
“The first day, they started by creating some commotion in several parts of the country and we had to recall the results. The first day of the party nominations flopped,” revealed Murathe. The chaos prompted the party to recall the elections.
“When we repeated the second nominations, all hell broke loose because some interested parties rigged out highly popular people in some of our own areas in Mount Kenya and Rift Valley and planted their own,” stated Murathe.

Miguna Miguna a Kenyan Lawyer who was deported to Canada for swearing in Raila as the peoples President has revealed Uhurus plan to kick out DP Ruto of Jubilee party.
Miguna Miguna revealed it in his recently published book Treason: The Case Against Tyrants and Renegades and claimed that Uhuru had the plan all along.
The troubled Lawyer disclosed that Uhuru had “mortal fear of Ruto” in two elaborate schemes to push him out in the middle of his second term. Miguna also claims that in the second term (scheme) Uhuru had planned to launch a fight against corruption in which the DP would be edged out as a casualty.
“The idea was to weaponize the fight against corruption and use it to undermine, sabotage and attempt to destroy their perceived, or real, political enemies, including Ruto before removing him as Uhuru’s DP,” wrote Miguna.
He further revealed that the presidents’ advisers were ever determined to ensure Ruto does not ascend to President come 2022. He singled out businessman Jimmy Wanjigi who shared with him stories of Uhuru’s fear of the DP.
He also reveals that the Presidents team had planned all along to expand the Executive with a prime minister post that would be taken up by Uhuru after his second terms end. Miguna explained that Uhuru sought to review the winner-takes-it-all structure of government against an earlier pact he had made to support Ruto for 2022 elections.
The fight to beat Ruto had already taken shape with former Jubilee Vice-Chair David Murathe coming out and publicly vowing to block Ruto from becoming President.He accused the DP of rigging party nominations, especially in Mount Kenya and Rift Valley regions.
David Murathe who was Jubilee Party Vice-chairman on Tuesday revealed how DP Ruto rigged the party elections before the 2017 general elections.
Murathe who was speaking during an interview on Citizen Television, he revealed the cause of his problems with DP Ruto. “I have outlined several (issues), it his attitude and frankly speaking, it started with the Jubilee party nominations,” said Former Jubilee Vice-chair.
Murathe further revealed that there was a group of people behind the chaotic nominations so as to facilitate the rigging in the party polls.
“The first day, they started by creating some commotion in several parts of the country and we had to recall the results. The first day of the party nominations flopped. When we repeated the fresh nominations, all hell broke loose because interested parties rigged out highly popular people particularly in Mount Kenya and Rift Valley regions. They were able to manipulate the nomination results,” he stated.
Murathe who vividly declared that he had no problems with DP Ruto as contrary to the public perception.
“I have a problem with his models of planning. I haven’t had an opportunity to sit him down and tell him if he continues down that road, he is on his own so I have had to come out publicly. And sometimes you may find he is not the problem, it is the cartel around him that is responsible for a lot of this,” he stated.
William Kabogo who lost to Waititu in the party primaries expressed his displeasure to social media on how the party conducted its nominations.

The legislators further claimed that the kitty was being operated secretly with some claiming that it never even existed at all.

Nandi Governor Stephen Sang, Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwa and Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi had earlier accused Joho of being a drug lord. Joho didn’t hesitate and had warned them to take legal action against them on their accusation.
After the warning from Joho, Sudi still insisted that he will not apologise at all over the drug trafficking mumble.
The legislator still called the governor to call a press conference and apologize to Kenyans and the people of Mombasa for engaging in an unlawful drug trafficking business.
In November 2018, a letter emerged with Joho being listed by the international police organization listing him as a fugitive on Interpol’s radar.
Mombasa Governor had earlier wrote to Interpol according to the standard to clarify reports linking Joho to an international drug network.
“It is therefore in our client’s interest, the interests of all residents of the county of Mombasa and the nation as a whole that your office informs us on the authenticity or lack thereof of the statement,” read Joho’s request to Interpol.
