Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot has castigated State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena-Mararo for getting involved in Jubilee Party’s matters.
According to Cheruiyot, the wrangles in Jubilee should not be her concern as she was hired to represent State House and not the party.
In a Twitter post that has earned him backlash from a section of Kenyans, The outspoken Senator questioned Kanze’s competence saying that she does not have any comprehension of the party’s dealings.
This comes a few days after the State House spokesperson defended Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju against an attack by DP William Ruto.
The deputy president accused Tuju of working with ODM leader Raila Odinga further labelling him chief strategist for the opposition party.
Mr. Tuju had flown to Rarieda with Siaya Senator James Orengo and area MP Amollo Otiende, an issue that angered leaders allied to Ruto..
Dena defended the meeting, stating that it was official and Tuju was appointed to represent the President.
“The Cabinet Secretary had an official speech of the President and, therefore, it was not a private function but a development event by the government.,” Kanze Dena told Nation.
Cheruiyot’s sentiments elicited fury among a section of Twitter users who were quick to defend Kanze Dena.
