When The Jubilee party came to power, it was in the public domain that President Uhuru Kenyatta would complete his 10 year term then support his Deputy President, William Samoei Ruto in the bid to become president come the year 2022.
A lot has changed since then and it seems the initial agreement that was made is headed to the grave.
Since the handshake took place there has been a lot of wrangles between groups allied to the deputy president William Ruto and those allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta leading to team Tanga Tanga and Team Kieleweke.
The BBI (Building Bridges Initiative) report has even created a further rift in the large Jubilee Party. Some say the BBI report is just a way to ensure that President Uhuru Kenyatta and his handshake ally Raila Odinga remain in power after the next general election.
Joseph Tonui, who is the Kuresoi South member of parliament now wants the president to come clear if he is planning to remain in power or if he is going to hand over after his tenure.
Tonui has also called on the predident to put the Jubilee party in order by convening a Jubilee Parliamentary Group to iron out issues affecting the party.
It is unfortunate that MPs have been reading from different scripts on party issues with the President failing to grant them a meeting to ventilate on the issues and take a common approach for the sake of party unity,Said Mr. Tonui.
Tension can be clearly seen between the two parties allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta and those allied to Deputy President William Ruto. Those allied to Deputy president want the President to come clean on 2022 succession politics.
