President Uhuru Kenyatta now moves faster to overhaul Jubilee party during the pandemic.  Things fall apart in the Jubilee party.

After sealing a post-election coalition deal with Kanu chairman Gideon Moi, Uhuru has seized another key Rift Valley elite, former Bomet Governor Isaac Rutto.

It appeared that Opposition chief Raila Odinga has called a critical meeting of the party's Central Management Committee on Thursday to uncover a deal on a working order with Jubilee.

However, in a statement through his CCM party, Rutto revealed he was picked by a helicopter but dismissed he was to meet the President.

He said he accompanied his wife who was being airlifted to Nairobi as an essential service provider.

"I wish to set the record straight that my travel had nothing to do with the political realignments in the country, as is being speculated in social media," Rutto said.

“The Rift Valley will now become noticeably fragmented for Ruto, the ground in which he hitherto could be the boss would shift,” said former Cabinet minister Franklin Bett.

He said the President was determined to get into a coalition with as many parties as possible to secure his legacy.

“Ruto made a big mistake to allow his foot soldiers to insult the President. He never criticised them when they claimed they had numbers. Numbers for what? Numbers against the President? Uhuru is hitting back,” Bett said.
