DP Ruto reluctantly accepts decision to not field candidate in Msambweni


Deputy President William Ruto has reluctantly accepted Jubilee Party’s decision to drop out of the Msambweni by election.

Ruto has said that though he was of a different view, he has had to accept the party’s decision.

Speaking at a media briefing, Ruto has stated that those who wanted to vie using the Jubilee ticket will now vie on an independent ticket or using a different party.

“I was of a different view but I have accepted the Jubilee Party’s decision not to field a candidate in the Msambweni parliamentary by-election,” said Ruto

Ruto has however urged Jubilee supporters not to view the decision as a move that will shrink the party.

Jubilee Party Secretary General Raphael Tuju earlier today released a statement stating that the party will not field a candidate in Msambweni owing the decision to the good relationship with the ODM Party and the recent advisory by CJ Maraga to dissolve the party.
