The handshake came to tear Jubilee apart, says Senator Mwaura

The resignation of Jubilee Vice Chair David Murathe has brought about political instability among different political figures as well as division.

Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura  now believes that the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and His Counterpart Raila Odinga was not of goodwill but to divide the ruling party Jubilee.


According to Mwaura, “Jubilee was a big tent with two poles, one called Uhuru and another Ruto. A camel came in the name of the handshake and tore the tent apart. Now we have Team Kieleweke and Team Tangatanga,”

He further added saying that, the handshake and tore the tent apart, slowly but surely.

His sentiment came a day after the Jubilee Vice Chair Murathe resigned following his harsh remarks following DP Ruto’s 2022 succession.

Further threatening to escalate his efforts to block the DP from vying in 2022, adding that he is ready to seek an advisory opinion from the Supreme Court.

Mwaura is not the first Jubilee politician to pour cold water on the partnership between the Uhuru and Raila.

MPs allied to the DP have expressed unease about the pact between Uhuru and Raila, saying it is a threat to the unity of Jubilee Party.
