Party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting at Woodlands Hotel, Nakuru County on Friday, February 10, replaced Kioni with East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) MP Kanini Kega.
Jubilee party forwarded the six resolutions it made to the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties (ORPP).
In a statement on Monday, February 14, ORPP acknowledged the receipt of the resolutions reached during the Jubilee Party NEC meeting held on Friday, February 10.
ORPP Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Ann Nderitu said it has no objection to the resolutions but to ratify the ouster of Jeremiah Kioni as the party spokesperson.
“This Office acknowledges receipt of your letter dated 10th February 2023 and received on February 13, 2023, at the Jubilee Party (JP) National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held on February 10, 2023,” Nderitu said.
During the NEC meeting, businessman-cum politician David Murathe was also kicked out and his position was taken by Aldas MP Adan Keynan on an interim basis.
Kioni, a strong supporter of the former Prime Minister opposed the changes saying that they were not held in accordance with the law.
“I hear that some people met in Nakuru led by those who went to State House recently and claimed that Jubilee is leaving Azimio. That is a lie. Jubilee will be in Azimio to the end,” Kioni said insisting that he was still the Jubilee Party spokesperson.
However, Nderitu in his letter seen by Kivumbi.co.ke indicated that ORPP was satisfied that the ouster was done as per the law.
“The Office has taken note of the contents of your submissions and the resolutions. It is also noted that the meeting was properly convened as per the party constitution,” she said.
