Jubilee party leadership
Political parties registrar Anne Nderitu says the party has followed the law in making changes to its leadership. She says that documents presented to her office effecting changes were signed by bona fide officials as required by law.
Jubilee has proposed to replace Fatuma Shukri, Pamela Mutua and Veronica Maina in the National Management Committee (NMC) after all three took up government jobs. The party has nominated Lucy Macharia, Marete Marangu, Walter Nyambati, Jane Nampaso, and James Waweru to replace them.
Some MPs allied to Deputy President William Ruto have faulted the party’s leadership for failing to convene any meeting three years since its formation. The leaders say lack of meetings for the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC), National Delegates Council (NDC) and the Parliamentary Group (PG) has led them to air their grievances via social media.
Nderitu added that “The intention to change Jubilee Party’s national management committee followed the law. For us, we look at the documents and confirm if they have been signed by the relevant officials, and in this case, that was done,”
Deputy Secretary-General Caleb Kositany (Soy), Moses Kuria (Gatundu South), Nixon Korir (Lang’ata) and Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika blamed the party’s Secretary General Raphael Tuju of misleading party leader President Uhuru Kenyatta not to convene the meeting.
