Murang'a senator Irungu Kang'ata has said the Jubilee party National Executive Council shall determine the fate of Deputy President William Ruto in the party.

Kang'ata said the council shall implement the proposal by the party's Secretary General to have the DP thrown out for allegedly becoming defiant.

Speaking in Kandara Murang'a, Kang'ata, however, said the proposal has been presented to the council which he is a member.

"Whatever Tuju being the secretary General said was appropriate, but the council shall have the final say," he said.

Kang'ata who doubles as Senate Majority Chief Whip, however, castigated the move by the DP and his allies to storm the party headquarters and hold a meeting without involving other leaders.

"This was not right because we have rules and guidelines which govern the party," he said.

"I wish those who stormed in the meeting were doing something more constructive like launching projects instead of causing unnecessary drama," he added.

He also said failure by DP Ruto to attend the Covid-19 conference which was headed by the President speaks volume.

The legislator said this was a national event and important matters were being discussed and thus the could not have missed the meeting.

"When it comes to leadership, one should forget their personal interests and focus on the people who elected him," said Kang'ata.

He urged leaders to shelve 2022 politics and focus on service delivery to the public.
