Jubilee Begins Fresh Start, Suspends Kioni & Murathe


Jubilee Party Chairman, Nelson Dzuya, made a major announcement at a Jubilee Party Parliamentary Group meeting on Friday, February 10th, regarding changes in the leadership structure of the party. The Chairman revealed that former Ndaragwa MP, Jeremiah Kioni, had been dismissed as the Secretary General due to negligence and misconduct.

Leadership Changes Galore

In addition to the dismissal of Kioni, the Vice Chairman, David Murathe, was also suspended. The Jubilee Party released a statement saying that the cases of the suspended officials have been referred to the internal dispute resolution mechanism of the party for further review. The National Treasurer, Kagwe Gichohi, was also suspended.

To fill the void left by the suspended members, Jubilee Party announced new appointments, with Kanini Kega being named as the Acting Secretary General, Rachel Nyamai as the National Treasurer, and Adan Keynan as the National Vice Chairperson. The Jubilee National Executive Council (NEC) has also begun the process of exiting the Azimio coalition and is seeking recognition as a Parliamentary Party with all the rights and benefits that come with it.

Gender Equality in Leadership

The Jubilee Party further announced the appointment of several new members to its National Executive Committee (NEC) to ensure compliance with the two-thirds gender rule. The newly co-opted members include Irene Njoki Murembo, Sabina Chege, Margaret Kamar, and Jerusha Momanyi.

Distance from Anti-Government Protests

The Jubilee Party MPs expressed their distance from the anti-government protests of Azimio and pledged their allegiance to the government. The MPs stated that they would work with President William Ruto to ensure the development of the nation.

The leadership shake-up in Jubilee Party marks a major shift in the political landscape and raises questions about the direction the party will take in the coming months. Stay tuned for updates on the developments in the Jubilee Party.
