A day later, Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju announced declared the DP a persona non-grata at Jubilee and announced plans to strip him of his position as the Deputy Party leader.
Over the weekend, two people died at skirmishes that erupted during the DP’s visit to Kenol, in Murang’a County. We hope the clergy will pray for their souls.
