Nairobi County Senator Johnson Sakaja has refuted claims that Jubilee party is already dead.

Speaking on Wednesday night when he appeared at Citizen TV’s JKLive show, Sakaja acknowledged that the party was facing some internal challenges but could still be sorted out and restore the party.

“Jubilee is not dead but its ailing and it can be treated and rejuvenated. Many of us who took part in its building can still come together and sort our issues internally” stated Sakaja.

Sakaja insisted that Jubilee’s initial plans were to create a party that could last for more than 20 years something that had already helped in killing regional alienated parties.

He maintained that the party’s dream could still be met despite the challenges which he said are also faced by other parties in the country.

Sakaja was responding to Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior’s claims that the party was already dead and in its last kicks.

According to the Wiper party Senator, Jubilee was no longer a political party but just a ‘shell’.

He observed that it was such a big shame for a ruling party to be exposing its differences in public adding that Jubilee was only interested in getting power in 2017.

“Let us be realistic, Jubilee is not going to last till 2022. It is clear that the only thing they wanted to do is to get into power,” stated Sakaja.

The decision by Jubilee to field a candidate in the Kibra parliamentary by-election generated heat in the party after it emerged that President Uhuru Kenyatta was not keen on the campaigns in order to guard the peace deal between him and ODM boss Raila Odinga.

Sources inside the ruling party indicate that some of the officials have pointed an accusing finger at Deputy President William Ruto over the push to field a candidate in the race “in a bid to scuttle the handshake.
