David Murathe Resigns From Jubilee Party, Vows To Block Ruto's Presidential Bid

David Murathe has resigned from his position of Vice Chairperson of the Jubilee Party saying that his continued stay in the ruling party is no longer untenable.
David Murathe, who has been in the news lately for openly saying that William Ruto is not fit to run Kenya, has said he intends to block Ruto from running for president when Uhuru Kenyatta retires in 2022.
The former Gatanga member of parliament says it doesn't make sense for him to continue sitting in the National Executive Council with the same man he is taking to the Supreme Court to prevent from being president.
Murathe recently announced, during the funeral of Raphael Tuju's brother, that William Ruto has served two terms alongside Uhuru Kenyatta and is thus not qualified to run.
He said he will be seeking the interpretation of the highest court in the land on the matter. He has made good his threat.
David Murathe is a close confidant of president Uhuru Kenyatta and many of Ruto's allies saw his sentiments as an echo of what those in Uhuru's camp feel.
