Friday, May 5, 2023 –Jubilee Party has moved with speed to de-register both Mr. Kanini Kega and Ms Sabina Chege from the party membership register.
The Friday May 5 move by Uhuru Kenyatta’s party wants the two politicians removed as party members following their ‘unbecoming’ conduct.
The East African Legislative Assembly MP Kanini Kega and Nominated Member of Parliament MP Sabina Wanjiru Chege are accused of, among other things, sabotaging party’s activities and undermining its leadership.
In a detailed four-page letter, the Jubilee Party through its secretary general Jeremiah Kioni, has requested Registrar Of Political Parties Anne Nderitu to consider striking out the two names for violating the Constitution.
“This is to notify you that Honourable Kanini Kega has pursuant to Section 14 of the political parties Act No. 1 of 2011 as read together with Article 6 of the Jubilee Party Constitution ceased from being a member of the Jubilee party,” Mr. Jeremiah Kioni stated.
In the letter seen by Homenews.co.ke, Kega and Sabina are being accused of promoting other party’s interests and policies against the Jubilee Party’s Constitution.
These actions, according to the letter, are an open violation of terms and condition laid down in party membership rules.
“Honourable Kanini Kega has contravened the party’s constitution and its code of conduct by purporting to dislodge and/or overthrow the Jubilee Party leader herein being His Excellency Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta without following the due process as established under the Jubilee Constitution,” it partly reads.
In addition, Kega is told that he had usurped powers of the National Delegates Conference NDC by installing MP Sabina Wanjiru Chege as the new acting party boss.
“Kanini Kega has contravened the Jubilee’s Party Constitution by conferring unto himself the position of the Secretary-General without following the due process as laid down under the Jubilee Party Constitution,” the notice also read.
Furthermore, Kioni pointed out that Sabina Chege was wrong and out of order in accepting to become party leader of Jubilee.
Both Kega and Sabina Chege have since proclaimed their loyalty to the ruling regime.
