Immediate former Jubilee interim vice-chairman David Murathe officially resigned this evening after a long week of heavy jabs on DP Ruto and threatening his 2022 bid.
Murathe appeared on an exclusive interview on KTN just hours after his resignation and we have compiled video highlights of some of his key remarks.
First of all, Murathe made it very clear that he had no problem with the Kalenjin community, he only had a problem with one member of the community who he, and many other people within Jubilee, felt he wasn’t suitable for the top job come 2022.
Murathe added that William Ruto had a long trail of scandals and it would be morally incorrect if he was allowed to lead the country.
When asked if he himself had any political ambitions, Murathe was quick to rubbish it, insisting he had no such plans at all.
When asked why he decided to resign from his position in Jubilee, Murathe said he did so so people stop saying he was speaking on behalf of Uhuru Kenyatta, insisting that whatever he said was simply his own opinion.
Murathe also noted that there is no crisis whatsoever in Jubilee.
In yet another hit on William Ruto, Murathe informed the public that there was no MOU between William Ruto and Uhuru, and dared them to produce one if it existed.
Murathe also said that many people within the Jubilee party held the same opinion on William Ruto.
Lastly, Murathe made it clear that he does not take orders from Uhuru Kenyatta and that he didn’t consult him before his decision to resign.
