Lawmakers allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta last week threatened to move a motion to kick out Deputy President William Ruto and his allies, who are considered rebels, from the party during the meeting.
Ruto, the de facto leader of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party, holds the position of deputy party leader in Jubilee.
In a statement on Thursday, the legislators, under the Jubilee Parliamentary Caucus, said they would sever links with the DP over his association with UDA.
The legislators said Ruto’s “hustler” camp had attempted to rock the party from within and only defected to UDA after failing to achieve their goals.
“Fortunately, they have failed, and we can now see that they have opted for a shameful and undignified exit. They have now taken to running around the country trying to sell snake oil to unsuspecting Kenyans. We are here to tell Kenyans. Beware!” the MPs said.
The exit by Ruto and his allies, the MPs said, would pave way for the re-branding and re-launch of the party. Reports indicate that the Jubilee leadership is plotting to bring in ODM leader Raila Odinga as the party’s new partner ahead of the 2022 presidential contest.
The legislators claimed that Ruto’s “hustler” camp is unfit to lead due to graft links.
But Ruto laughed off Jubilee’s expulsion plans saying the party was dead already.
