Jubilee Party headquarters in Pangani Nairobi for the first time in 17 months has suddenly turned into a hive of activities.
On Friday morning, any regular Citizen using Thika road would have noticed that the parking lot at the party headquarters was unusual.
Sources within the party who spoke to Daily Statesman said the party top officials had been summoned to discuss the future of the party following reports that the Tanga Tanga faction within Jubilee who are allied to Deputy President William Ruto was set to open Hustlers Center in Kilimani.
This was after the party’s Secretary-General Raphael Tuju banned DP Ruto and his allies from Jubilee headquarters accusing him of using the party to undermine the President’s efforts to unite the country.
Tuju’s riot act on the Deputy President came after Tanga Tanga opened a parallel office dubbed Jubilee Asili center that was later closed down after the landlord kicked out tanga from the premises.
Jubilee NEC is keen to salvage the party and Its members from being affected by DP Ruto’s hustler politics that has led to the creation of the UDA party.
” A meeting was convened to discuss the fate of the party and how to save it from collapsing,” the source who sought anonymity added.
Tanga Tanga according to reports will officially launch the UDA party after the Registrar of Political Parties gave a green light to change the name of The DR party to UDA.
The center will not only act as the command center for Tanga Tanga think tanks but also house the new United Democratic Party (UDA).
