In Summary

  • Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura has compared the Jubilee party woes to a two-pronged tent that was standing on the unity of DP Ruto and President Uhuru Kenyatta
  • In a post he made on social media, Mwaura claimed that the handshake which he compared to a camel had made its way to the 'tent' and slowly but surely tearing it apart
  • He advised all the concerned parties to make haste and get alternative plans ahead of the 2022 face-off

Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura now says that the Uhuru-Raila handshake was the beginning of Jubilee’s end.

In a post that he made on social media, the outspoken politician compared Jubilee to a tent that was propped on two poles; President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto.

In his analysis, Mwaura compared the handshake to a camel that barged into the Uhuru-Ruto tent tearing it asunder and inadvertently creating two divisions; Ruto’s #TeamTangaTanga and #Teamkieleweke which is anti-Ruto.

In March 2018, Uhuru and Raila met at the President’s Harambee House office for a closed-door meeting that ended a year-long political standoff between NASA and Jubilee.

The political truce appeared to have brought cracks both in Jubilee and NASA with leaders from both camps terming the ‘truce’ as a politics of convenience.

Now, Senator Mwaura has advised Ruto to make plans early because the die has already been cast.

Mwaura’s observation comes hot in the wake of former Jubilee Vice-chair David Murathe’s sentiments that Central Kenya does not owe DP Ruto’s any votes in the 2022 election.

Murathe has since resigned from his post, claiming that his quest to stop a DP Ruto presidency was bigger than his post at Jubilee.

In a TV interview on Sunday evening, Murathe claimed that Ruto’s mode of operation is not good for the country, further alleging that the DP directs his lieutenants to engage in “unorthodox stuff.” He, however, did not elaborate on what that meant.
