What you need to know:

  • A spot check by the Sunday Nation yesterday established that the Jubilee Asili Centre was desolate with no activity at in the recent past.
  • At the gate, there was not security guard and even the Jubilee Asili banner had been removed. The guard’s room was full of dust.

Deputy President William Ruto’s camp was forced to shelve its plan to operationalise his command centre — Jubilee Asili — after the owner of the building reportedly asked them to leave.
