Two days after Deputy President William Ruto toured Rift Valley and drummed up support for Jubilee, Kuresoi South MP Zakayo Cheruiyot has said Jubilee is a tribal party of two communities.

The URP lawmaker criticised the Deputy President for lacking a development agenda, despite wanting to be President in 2022.

“How can we join a party with no agenda? It is only a tool used by two people for selfish political interests,” he said.

Speaking at Siwot AGC Church in his constituency, Cheruiyot said the party excludes other 40 tribes.

He said there will never be a day it will unite Kenyans.

He said the party is built on ethnic divisions that threaten Kenya’s security.

He urged voters to elect leaders who have their interests at heart. 

Cheruiyot previously accused Ruto of being a dictator.

He insists he will defend his seat without joining Jubilee.
