Jubilee Party officially expels Jeremiah Kioni and David Murathe


The Office of the Registrar of Political Parties (ORPP) announced on February 13 that Jeremiah Kioni and David Murathe had been expelled from the Jubilee Party. This decision followed the Jubilee Party National Executive Council meeting on February 10, during which Kioni was suspended as Secretary General and replaced by Kanini Kega, a member of the East African Legislative Assembly. Additionally, Eldas Constituency Member of Parliament Adan Keynan replaced Murathe as National Vice-Chairperson. In a statement, the ORPP confirmed the receipt of the documents related to the meeting, and verified that the ouster was carried out in accordance with the party constitution and the law.

The ORPP required the Jubilee Party to keep it informed of the status of the internal dispute resolution and disciplinary procedures, and to adhere to the terms of the party constitution while performing these procedures. Before leaving the coalition, the Jubilee Party was also required to comply with the requirements of the party constitution, as well as the provisions of the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance coalition agreement and the function of different party organs.

During the February 10 meeting, Kioni resisted any attempt to remove him as Secretary General, and denied allegations that the party would leave the Azimio Coalition to join the Kenya Kwanza Alliance. He promised that the Jubilee Party would remain in the coalition until the end.

The decision to expel Kioni and Murathe came after a long period of tension and conflict within the Jubilee Party. Kioni had been accused of misconduct and mismanagement of party affairs, while Murathe had been criticized for his alleged involvement in corrupt activities.

Kanini Kega, who was appointed as the new Secretary General, expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to serve the party, and promised to work towards its growth and success. He also called on all members of the Jubilee Party to unite and work towards the common goal of serving the people of Kenya.

Adan Keynan, the new National Vice-Chairperson, also pledged his commitment to the party, and promised to work towards its success in the upcoming elections. He thanked the members of the Jubilee Party for their support, and urged them to remain united and focused on the party’s goals.

The expulsion of Kioni and Murathe has been met with mixed reactions, with some Jubilee Party members expressing support for the decision, while others have criticized it as an attempt to stifle dissent within the party. However, the ORPP’s decision has been widely praised for upholding the rule of law and the principles of democracy.

The Jubilee Party has since embarked on a new path, with its new leadership promising to restore the party’s credibility and rebuild its support base. Despite the challenges ahead, the Jubilee Party remains optimistic about its future, and committed to serving the people of Kenya with integrity and dedication.
