Murang’a Woman Rep Sabina Chege on Tuesday, March 10, blamed Jubilee politicians for the rift that has been witnessed at the party.
Speaking during a live show on Citizen TV, Sabina stated that the rift had seen some of the Jubilee leaders affiliated to Deputy President William Ruto, sideline her.
“Raila Odinga had his own team of NASA, there was Kalonzo Musyoka, there was Mudavadi and Wetangula but we have seen them walking with Raila.
“On our side as a Jubilee, there has been a lot of suspicions. Even when you walk in parliament, there are some people who will not shake my hand, there are people who have made it their business to pay bloggers to abuse me on social media,” Sabina stated.

“There are some people who have even paid for opinion polls so that we are seen as people who are not working. We have started even being nasty to each other,” she added.
Further, the Woman Rep stated that she was disappointed with the Deputy President for stating that the system was against him.
“You cannot go whining, at your position, telling Kenyans that there is a system. He needs to discuss such in-depth matters with the President.
“We normally see them going to projects, laughing together. So, does he want to tell us that they do not talk? Let us not incite Kenyans” Sabina stated.
Additionally, Sabina warned leaders against inciting Kenyans, especially during the BBI rallies.
“People have taken the rallies as a moment of fame and some of the comments that have been coming even from senior leaders is that have not been going well with people on the ground,” she stated.
Sabina comments come a day after Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen complained that the DP had been stripped off his powers.
Speaking to the press, Murkomen stated that the DP had been reduced to a figure-head.
“The treatment he has been accorded is wanting. Former vice presidents had clear roles delegated to them just like the DP was during the first term when he chaired most of the meetings dealing with electricity, roads, youth, education and always reported to the president.
“He is almost directly being told to stay at home yet he was elected,” Murkomen claimed.
