Raphael Tuju resigns as Jubilee Party Secretary General, set to focus on other political engagements.

Raphael Tuju, the secretary-general of Jubilee, has resigned. Despite being ‘four kilometers from your primary opponent’s home,’ the former Rarienda MP expressed gratitude for the president’s trust in him.” “Thank you for sticking by me, even on a personal level, from the time I was in a terrible car accident until I was able to stand here. Tuju did not say what he would do next, but he did say that the president had given him new responsibilities.

“We’ve agreed with the president to give me additional duties in the future,’ Tuju said. He went on to say: “I can’t be secretary-general and pursue other political goals while also performing the duties he has assigned to me.’ The party is set to make additional significant changes today as it rebrands in preparation for joining the Azimio La Umoja.“In January, I went to President Uhuru Kenyatta to ask for permission if I could exit his Cabinet because of my other ambitions. We didn’t make the announcement then but I stopped being a member of his Cabinet so as to comply with other regulations,” Tuju said.
Ndaragwa Member of Parliament Jeremiah Kioni has taken his seat, with Cherangany MP Joshua Kuttuny acting as his deputy. Meanwhile, President Uhuru Kenyatta will continue to lead the Jubilee Party, with Jimmy Angwenyi taking over as Deputy Party Leader from Deputy President William Ruto. Kanini Kega was also named Director of Elections, while Nelson Dzuya was re-elected as the party’s chair and David Murathe was named deputy vice-chairman.
