William Ruto’s close ally drops hint on ‘New’ Political Party
Deputy President William Ruto’s close ally Dennis Itumbi is at it again. This time around he took to social media to drop a hint of the next political party named “Jubilee Asili”.
“Jubilee Asili Centre,” he wrote as he shared a picture of the party’s symbol. According to the photo, it still maintains the symbol of two people holding hands and Ruto’s United Republican Party colours yellow and black with President Uhuru’s The National Alliance party colour red removed.

Having severed his ties with the government, Mr.Itumbi has transformed himself into a harsh critic of President Uhuru and a staunch supporter of DP Ruto.
On March 18, 2020, the government abolished five positions within the Presidential Strategic Communications Unit (PSCU) and terminated the contracts of those who were holding the posts rendering Itumbi jobless.
The Jubilee party was formed in the run-up to the August 8, 2017 General Election following the dissolution of eleven affiliate political parties.
The parties that merged included The National Alliance party (TNA), the Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP), Alliance Party of Kenya (APK), New Ford People, United Republican Party (URP), Republican Congress Party of Kenya, the Party of National Unity (PNU), Saba Saba Asili, The Independent Party (TIP), and GNU among others.
