Deputy President William Ruto on Sunday called on Jubilee politicians to stop factional politics and instead focus on the party’s development agenda.

Ruto said all leaders in the ruling Jubilee Party should unite and rally behind President Uhuru Kenyatta for implementation of projects that would better their lives.

“I want to urge Kenyans and especially Jubilee leaders to stop factional politics. We are one team, we have one leader, we have on me manifesto, we only have one big 4 agenda… So let us unite and work together in fulfiling the pledges President Uhuru Kenyatta made to Kenyans,” said Ruto.

The DP said he would continue spearheading the implementation of the Jubilee manifesto across the country “to secure President Kenyatta’s legacy”.

“I want to assure you that we will not allow the party’s projects to be derailed. We will mobilise every resource, person and leader in the direction of ensuring that we deliver on our manifesto on the Big 4 project so that we can transform the country,” said Ruto.

Ruto was speaking at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Kiharu, Murang’a County where he was accompanied by MPs Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu), Rigathi Gachagua (Mathira), Purity Ngirici (Woman Rep, Kirinyaga), James Gakuya (Embakasi North) and Mary Waithira (Maragua).

Others were Alice Wahome (Kandara), Faith Gitau (Woman Rep,Nyandarua), Githiaka Kiai (Mukurweini), Geoffrey King’ang’i (Mbeere South) and Mwangi Gichuhi (Tetu).

The DP’s remarks come in the wake of division in the ruling party that have seen emergence of two groups; Tanga Tanga, which is perceived to be pro-Ruto, and Kieleweke, which is believed to be against the DP.
