    In a recent development, Soy MP and former Jubilee Deputy Secretary-General Caleb Kositany hinted that the Tangatanga regime would seek party elections in order to seize the Jubilee party from President Uhuru Kenyatta’s grip.

    “If they are men enough, let them call party elections today, we will sweep everything from their fold,” he confidently stated.

    In his part, Uhuru had in February 2021 dared his deputy and MPs allied to the DP to resign instead of criticising the government.

    “We need to either work together or not. If they feel that the government is favourable to them, then they should work with us but if they disassociate themselves, then let them resign,” the president stated.
