Jubilee Party Interim Leaders Take Over Party Headquarters


The removal of Jubilee Party Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni and Vice Chairperson David Murathe was verified by the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties on Tuesday, February 14.

The next day, on February 15, interim party leaders headed by East African Legislative Assembly Member of Parliament Kanini Kega, Eldas MP Adan Keynan, and nominated legislator Sabina Chege seized control of the party headquarters under tight security.

The team announced their support for the Kenya Kwanza administration and their plan to initiate disciplinary proceedings against Kioni and Murathe.

Kega said that the party would perform a thorough audit of all operations that occurred before to, during, and after the elections, as well as a comprehensive review of all financial transactions to confirm their legality.

Chege said she was being harassed as a result of her choice to collaborate with the government, and she proclaimed her fearlessness in the face of such criticism.

Keynan said that there was no possibility for reconciliation with the Azimio coalition and that the process of quitting it would begin.

Sarah Korere underlined that the party will not collapse, but would instead collaborate closely with the government while keeping Jubilee together.

Meanwhile, Azimio leader Raila Odinga decried the takeover and accused President William Ruto of attempting to pressure Members of Parliament into supporting him, claiming that such a move would weaken the opposition and establish a one-party dictatorship.

Odinga made these remarks to the media during a police raid on the residence of former Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi on February 15.
