Embattled Jubilee Secretary general has moved to warn his opponents that he will defend his Jubilee post even in sick bed.

Tuju spoke publicly for the first time since returning from London a few days ago where he received specialized treatment following a road accident that left him almost paralyzed.

Tuju said it took the intervention of specialized doctors to restore fallen lungs and broken vertebrae which gave him a second lease of life. He looked frail and has lost much weight.

But even before Tuju could set on the full path to recovery, the embattled secretary general has moved to dispel fears that his position as secretary general is vacant and up for grabs.

Tuju who was expected to relinquish the post during the next party election said he will be back to defend his seat from falling into the hands of saboteurs who want to jeopardize President Uhuru Kenyatta’s big 4 agenda.

I have just returned. I will be briefed on the issues in our party, and the developments which took place while I was away, then I will continue discharging my duties,” he said.

“If people were salivating for my position thinking I will not come back, then they are in for a rude shock”, he added.

Tuju who had earlier in the week linked the accident to an assassination attempt reiterated he has so many enemies and that he would not wish them the kind of pain he has gone through.

“I have enemies but I wouldn’t wish them the kind of pain I went through. The most important thing now is that I am well, and I thank God and well wishers who prayed for me.”
Tuju who survived a plane crash that killed several Narc politicians in 2003 exuded confidence that he is on a path to full recovery.

He was airlifted to London on orders of President Uhuru Kenyatta and was accompanied by Karen Hospital founder Dr. Daniel Gikonyo.
