Uhuru’s Political Henchmen

Uhuru’s Political Henchmen

President Uhuru Kenyatta has contracted 4 henchmen to axe all Jubilee Party members disloyal to his supreme authority.

According to The Star, David Murathe, Raphael Tuju, Nancy Gitau, and Muhoho Kenyatta are the men and woman behind the President’s ruthless changes in the Jubilee Party.

Muhoho Kenyatta, the President’s younger brother, is the chief administrator of Uhuru’s four-member council. His mandate is to finance the operations of the underground body and to mastermind most of the strategies. Allegedly, deputy president’s allies blame Muhoho for their miseries in the political arena.

Nancy Gitau is a political strategist whose name is revered by politicians. She was the chief coordinator of Kenyatta’s presidential campaign in 2013 and 2017.  It is said that Ruto pushed Gitau out of her offices in the Office of the Deputy President, accusing her of undermining his authority. Allegedly, Gitau is the engineer of the Kieleweke, a Jubilee faction opposed to the deputy president.

Raphael Tuju is the Jubilee Party, secretary General. His critics claim that he executes all the President’s decisions, even those that violate the party coalition.

David Murathe, the Jubilee Party Vice-Chair, is the military chief of the fight against Ruto. Critics say he is the attack dog and voices the President’s mind.

 Just last week, Ruto’s wingmen purported that it was Muhoho who plotted the Jubilee-Kanu post-election deal that facilitated the change of the Senate leadership. Following the Jubilee-Kanu deal, Senators Kipchumba Murkomen and Susan Kihika, both close allies of the deputy president, were axed from the Senate Majority Leader and Senate Chief whip positions, respectively.

It is just the beginning of a coup against Ruto.

After Senate leadership changes, Jubilee is looking into ‘Rebel’ Mt. Kenya MPs

The Jubilee Party Secretary General, Raphael Tuju, said that the party has identified the rebel legislators to be recalled. The party will pitch camp in select Mount Kenya constituencies to spearhead the removal of some elected MPs through the recall clause. Those in trouble include Gatundu South MP Kuria, Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri, Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro, Kandara MP Alice Wahome, Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua and Kikuyu’s Kimani Ichung’wa who are some of the President’s vocal critics.

Whether the ruling coalition will succeed in this undertaking remains to be seen as no legislator has been successfully recalled since the passage of the 2010 Constitution

Former CJ Willy Mutunga Attacked over KANU’s 100 years of rule remark

Dr. Willy Mutunga

In a tweet accompanied by a cartoon depicting the famous declaration made by the former President Daniel Moi that KANU will rule Kenya for 100 years , Mr. Mutunga had expressed his views that KANU’s rule has been ’59 years of pain, tears, deaths, poverty, oppression, sweat and suffering’. He added, ‘ we must deny them the other 41 years’.

Many of those commenting seemed to attack Mutunga saying he had an opportunity as the chief Justice but never did anything to change things.

Some recalled his court’s ruling in 2013 when the opposition challenged Uhuru’s win.

However. Ahmednasir Abdullahi, himself a prominent lawyer in the country, seemed to remind him that the country’s politics is out of anyone’s hands.

Millicent Omanga among Nominated Senators to be Expelled from the Jubilee Party

Millicent Omanga among Nominated Senators to be Expelled from the Jubilee Party

The Jubilee Party has begun the process of expelling 5 nominated senators who snubbed President Kenyatta’s Parliamentary Group meeting on Monday. The senators include Falhada Dekow Iman, Naomi Jillo Waqo, Mary Seneta Yiane, Victor Prengei, and Millicent Omanga.

The Secretary-General Raphael Tuju said on Wednesday that the nominated senators would be recalled for ‘gross insubordination and misconduct.”

He said, “They received messages and did not even bother to send apologies for not attending the meeting.

Senator Millicent Omanga is a close ally of the deputy president William Ruto, whom she owes for her success in politics.

It is at the Parliamentary Group meeting at State House that the Jubilee Party changed the Senate leadership.

In an interview with James Mwangi of SDE in 2019, Omanga revealed that it is Ruto who organized for her appointment as the director of the Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen) shortly after the Jubilee party took power. At the time, Omanga earned a living by hawking bedsheets.

After her failed attempt at running for the Nairobi Women Representative seat, Omanga exposed that it was the deputy president who pushed her recommendation as a Nominated Senator for the Jubilee Party.
