Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi opines Uhuru move to hold Jubilee NDC to kick Ruto allied leaders was masterful

Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi opines Uhuru move to hold Jubilee NDC to kick Ruto allied leaders was masterful.

Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi has weighed in on the ongoing leadership wrangles in the Jubilee Party. 

Ngunyi in a tweet on Tuesday, May 23 opined that former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s move to hold a Jubilee National Delegates Conference (NDC) to expel rebels was masterful. 

He, however, noted that President William Ruto is street-smart and is likely to beat Uhuru in his own game and take control of the former ruling party

“Uhuru Kenyatta NDC was executed with panache and Masterful Calibration. But the methods of William Ruto are those of a village Chicken Seller. And Village boys have a way of disorganizing city boys using ‘mathogothanio’ methods. This game will not be neat. May the best man win,” said Ngunyi. 

Ngunyi’s remarks come after Uhuru’s hold on the Jubilee party leadership was dealt a blow after the Registrar of Political Parties Ann Nderitu approved the ouster of Jeremiah Kioni and David Murathe from the party.

“Following a review of the submitted documents in line with the PPA and party Constitution, this office is satisfied that the party adhered to the due process. Accordingly, pursuant to Section 34(da) of the PPA, this office has updated its records and the register of party members,” Nderitu said in a letter.

The decision was however stalled by the Political Parties Dispute Tribunal (PPDT) after it issued conservatory orders stopping the removal of the two until a case before it is heard and determined.

“That Pending the hearing and determination of the Application inter partes, interim conservatory orders are hereby issued prohibiting the 2nd Respondent from acting on any communication from the 1st Respondent and Interested Parties purporting to expel the Complainant from membership of the 1st Respondent,” PPDT stated.
