comfortable with his current political status and is not interested in being the Governor for Siaya.
"I want to assure all of you here that Tuju is not intending to be the Governor of Siaya.”
"I don’t have such dreams; I will support whoever the people of Siaya elect," Tuju stated.
The Jubilee boss revealed that if permitted to keep his position, he shall continue supporting the region in terms of development.
There have been rumours that Tuju is targeting the Siaya Governorship come 2022 going by the many development projects he has initiated in the County ever since he joined President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto.
Sunday January 6, 2019-Jubilee Party Vice Chairman, David Murathe, is now proposing Siaya Senator James Orengo to succeed Uhuru Kenyatta as President in 2022.
Speaking during the burial of Kefa Oduor Tuju, the younger brother to Jubilee Secretary General, Raphael Tuju, at Ralingo village, Rarieda
, Murathe noted that if ODM Leader Raila Odinga and Uhuru will not be vying for President in 2022 for various reasons, then Oren go is the best bet.
He argued that the Siaya Senator has seen it all and has what it takes to become President, unlike Deputy President William Ruto who is embroiled in numerous corruption scandals.
“Let Orengo vie for the Presidency.”
“If Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta are not contesting, Siaya can also produce a candidate," Murathe stated.
Murathe has in recent times caused a storm within Jubilee over his opposition to Ruto being automatic successor of Uhuru Kenyatta.
He has even vowed to go to the Supreme Court to block the DP from becoming President in 2022.
Sunday January 6, 2019-Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, has continued with his criticism on Jubilee's development impact.
Speaking on Sunday just hours after issuing a public apology to President Uhuru Kenyatta over earlier remarks, Kuria explained how a visit to Nyandarua County had made him revert to his earlier stance of the Jubilee development and how his Kikuyu nation has been left behind.
He demanded a fair formula in allocation of resources so that Central Kenya can also develop just like other regions.
"On Saturday, I attended the funeral of my good friend the late John Mwangi Kagema, Founder CEO Equity Bank and Chairman of Enashipai resort. May God rest his soul in eternal peace.”
"When I was in Nyandarua, I was even more convinced why we need a fair formula for resource allocation," Kuria stated.
"Potatoes, tomatoes and onions are being fed to animals.”
“There are no roads in Nyandarua to deliver these products to the markets in Nakuru, Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu or Thika," he added.
Sunday January 6, 2019-Deputy President William Ruto’s chances of becoming President are growing slimmer by the day.
This is after Nairobi Speaker Beatrice Elachi also severed links with him over his 2022 bid, saying the DP will never become President.
Speaking during the burial of Lugari MP Ayub Savula daughter, Joanne Chepchirchir, at Manyonyi Village, Elachi, one of the DPs close allies, surprised many by rallying leaders from Western to back one of their own instead of trouping to Sugoi.
She said the region must support Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi instead of the hustler from Sugoi.
“As a community, 2019 is a year of reflection and focus, we must start planning strategically so that our people benefits from the resources sharing formula,” said Ms Elachi.
“Our leaders trouping to Sugoi should stop forthwith and focus on working with Mudavadi to enhance the region’s chances of producing a President,” she added.
Her denouncement of Ruto is a major political setback to the DP especially after Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa also abandoned him.

Monday January 7, 2019-Meru Senator Mithika Linturi has added his voice to the ongoing political jitters in the Jubilee outfit, blaming President Uhuru Kenyatta for choosing to dump his Deputy, William Ruto, after using him to clinch the Presidency in 2013 and in 2017.
According to Linturi, Uhuru has left Ruto to stand alone in the ongoing political storms in Jubilee party after his handshake with ODM Leader, Raila Odinga.
"When we were hunting, honorable Uhuru used to call William Ruto my brother and promised him he will also help him once he serves his ten years as a President," Linturi told Meru residents on Sunday.
He said the President was keeping quiet unnecessarily as his deputy was undergoing strong political storms instead of coming to his rescue.
"But now things have changed, however, you cannot use someone as a bridge to cross the river and when you are done with him you let him go with the stormy waters" he added.
Monday, January 7, 2019-About a week ago , controversial city prophet, David Owuor, told his followers that President Uhuru Kenyatta had sent a chopper to pick him from Nakuru after the end of his 3 day healing and miracle crusade.
Before the controversial prophet boarded the plane in Nakuru, he told his followers that he was going to meet the President and other dignitaries at his River-side residence and bragged it was going to be a "big party".
Owuor wanted to prove to his followers that he is still connected with the high and mighty despite criticism on his fake church ministry.
State House Spokesperson, Kanze Dena, has embarrassed the fake prophet after revealing that the President didn’t send a chopper to pick him.
He was just lying to his brainwashed followers who never question him whenever he speaks.
In a statement to the press, Kanze said,“I am not aware of any such meeting (between President Kenyatta and Owuor). And none (chopper) was sent out,”
Captain Neepe, the proprietor of Pro Flight Limited, the company that leased out the chopper that flew Owour from Nakuru to Nairobi, said the chopper was hired by an individual who contacted his company via social media and paid the money in cash, something that State House and other Government bodies don't do.
He also rubbished Owuor’s claims that the chopper was sent by the President.
“I have done a lot of business with State House before. They always send us an LSO (Local Service Order) and they pay after a while… and you can actually see on the bank account that it is from State House. We have never dealt with them in cash. This one was not State House. With State House normally there are protocols, we get requests from procurement. In this case it was just an individual who called two to three days prior and paid.” Said the proprietor.
