Kenya’s ruling party, Jubilee, has rubbished a report circulating on social media claiming that its vice-chairperson David Murathe has quit his position.
Through its communication director Albert Memusi, the party termed the report fake, urging Kenyans to treat it with the contempt it deserves.
Mr. Memusi maintains Murathe is still Jubilee party’s vice chair and continues to carry out his duties in that capacity, working diligently to fulfill his mandate as provided for in the Party Constitution.
“It has come to our attention that there are reports circulating on social media alleging that the Jubilee Party Vice Chair, Hon. David Murathe has resigned. We would like to clarify that such reports are false,” Memusi said in the statement released on Wednesday.
He stated that any changes in the party leadership would be communicated through the official party organs, as is the norm and as is articulated in the Jubilee Party Constitution.
Jubilee party has recently hit the headlines in the media after failing to clinch a single seat in the just concluded by-elections, particularly central Kenya, the backyard of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
