JAP to be officially launched after Ruto's acquital by ICC

06 February 2015, 17:44

Nairobi - The recently formed Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP) is likely to be officially launched after the acquittal of deputy president William Ruto by the International Criminal Court (ICC), an MP has said.

Bahati Member of Parliament, Kimani Ngunjiri, said that they intend to launch the new outfit after Ruto’s ‘expected acquittal’ as a present to the Jubilee family.

Speaking Friday morning at Nakuru town, Ngunjiri said that the activities to market the new party have been put on halt until the deputy president is set free by ICC.

Ngunjiri said that all the focus, resources and energy in the Jubilee house has been shifted to concentrate on getting the DP out of ICC.

“Many people are asking why the JAP issue went silent all of a sudden but I want to tell them that the most important thing for the Jubilee coalition at the moment is to see the DP back home because we cannot be busy marketing a party when one of us is still tied up at the ICC. Kenyans will see the real picture of JAP the moment William Ruto will be set free because that is when we will plan to launch the party officially. For now, our energy is concentrated on bringing Ruto and Sang’ back home,” said Ngunjiri.

Ngunjiri added that Ruto and President Kenyatta will embark on a countrywide tour to market the new party immediately after the ICC cases are over.
