Nairobi - DP William Ruto is a liability to the Jubilee Coalition, an MP has said.
The MP from Nyeri, who asked not to be named stated that the continued talk of the 2022 elections instead of focussing on the 2017 polls which are less than a year away had diverted attention from the main business.
He criticized the DP for making the Jubilee Party all about 2022 and not the present.
He cautioned the Jubilee Coalition from wasting time on politics of six years later.
" The Jubilee Party has become all about the Ruto 2022 election, which is frankly wrong considering that the coming elections are around the corner," the MP said.
The MP added that the Party risks being divided unnecessarily over the 2022 polls while there was an election to be wion next year.
" It has been about who has supported Ruto and not, which could be a problem considering that the other leaders in the country are campaigning," the MP added.
But in a rejoinder, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator and Ruto ally Kipchumba Murkomen stated that it was not the case.
" The DP is fully behind the President and his plight to be re-elected. That is obvious as the light of day," he said.
" Those trying to hide and say otherwise are agents of doom that will not succeed," he added.
The DP has recently been campaigning with the President at the Coast and stated his desire to ensure that the 2017 polls are a Jubilee success story.
