Blow to Uhuru, Azimio as Tribunal Confirms Kanini Kega as Jubilee Party’s Acting SG

1 min read

The Political Parties Disputes Tribunal has upheld the appointment of Kanini Kega as Jubilee Party’s acting Secretary General after a legal tussle between two factions of the part, one led by Uhuru Kenyatta and the other, nominated MP Sabina Chege and EALA MP Kanini Kega.

In a ruling on Monday, July 10, 2023, the Tribunal also upheld the expulsion of Jeremiah Kioni and David Murathe from the Party.

“The suit against the 2nd Respondent (Registrar of Political Parties Ann Nderitu) is hereby struck out. The Appeal is dismissed in its entirety. The Appellants shall bear the Respondents and Interested Parties costs,” the ruling reads in part.

On May 19, 2023, the Kanini-led faction of the Jubilee Party expelled David Murathe and Jeremiah Kioni from their respective positions over gross misconduct and a lack of respect for Jubilee Party organs.

Jubilee National Treasurer Kagwe Gichohi had also been suspended for two years following recommendations by the National Disciplinary Committee (TNDC).
