The Office of the Registrar of Political Parties (ORPP) on Monday, Monday, February 13, ratified the decision by the Jubilee party to remove Jeremiah Kioni and David Murathe from party leadership.
In what appears that Rtd President Uhuru Kenyatta could be the next target in the ongoing purge, Nandi senator Samson Cherargei asked the Jubilee party to move with speed and kick him out of the party’s leadership.
Cherargei, in a statement on Tuesday, February 14, argued that the immediate former Head of State should exit the Jubilee Party leadership position for undermining the government of the day.
“Next is to remove Jubilee Party leader Uhuru Kenyatta from his position as heads to ODM/ Azimio-Oka for undermining the government that is duly recognized,” he said.
As such, Trade, Investment, and Industrialization Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria now wants nominated MP Sabina Chege to succeed the former Head of State as the Jubilee Party leader.
Kuria took to social media pictures of his visit to Sabina Chege and termed her as the “incoming Jubilee Party leader”.
“The incoming Jubilee Party leader came calling,” Kuria said in a tweet.
In a statement to the newsroom, ORPP Ann Nderitu confirmed that the former ruling party had made changes to its leadership.
In the changes, Aldas MP Adan Keynan succeeded David Murathe as the Jubilee Party chairperson.
Further, the East Africa Legislative Assembly (EALA) member Kanini Kega has named the new Secretary General replacing former Ndaragua MP Jeremiah Kioni.
In his letter, Nderitu however asked the Jubilee party to follow due process while initiating disciplinary proceedings against Kioni and other suspended officials.
“It is expected that the party shall update the office on the progress of the internal dispute resolution and disciplinary processes. You are further required to adhere to the provisions of the party constitution as you undertake the said processes,” she said.
