Stop payment of subscription fees If you don't want us at Jubilee, Linturi tells party


Meru Senator Mithika Linturi has decried what he termed as 'unfair treatment' by the Jubilee Party's top hierarchy towards some of its members.

Speaking to Citizen TV on Monday, Linturi said some members are being treated as strangers in Jubilee.

"It pains me when I pay money to this party and we are now being told we cannot go to the headquarters," he said.

"I am one of the people who made Jubilee to what it is by working day and night... If you are done with somebody there is a better method to part ways."

Linturi said this ensures respect and dignity within the party.

"We don't know what we did to make them treat us as strangers. I have no fear in my heart if this is the kind of arrogance that will continue and yet they have not suspended payment of subscription fees," he said.

"We cannot be feeding you and then insult us. It pains me to pay money to this party. Why don't we have a meeting to discuss the course of our party?"

The Jubilee Party last week announced that Deputy President William Ruto is no longer welcome to the party headquarters after he stormed the Pangani offices with over 30 MPs.

Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju said that Ruto ceased to be Deputy Party Leader the moment he sanctioned the opening of the Jubilee Asili Centre.

Ruto later hit out at his critics making a fuss out of his visit to Jubilee Headquarters accompanied by 38 legislators.

"These are interesting times indeed! That working from Jubilee HQs where I'm the duly elected deputy party leader is considered news," Ruto said via Twitter.

Ruto was responding to his Pangani visit where no senior Jubilee official including secretary-general Raphael Tuju was at hand to receive him.

Seen as part of his elaborate scheme to recapture Jubilee, the DP had resolved to be working from the Pangani-based office at least twice a week to kick out 'hijackers'.

That was the third time Ruto visited the Jubilee nerve centre in less than two weeks.

The DP is putting up a spirited fight to regain control of the outfit from 'cartels and busybodies' he said are holding the party hostage.
