Lawyers Fight Over Representation of Jubilee Party Officials


There was a dispute at a hearing of the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal (PPDT) when two lawyers appeared to defend the same clients.

Jackson Awele and John Njomo clashed over who was representing suspended Jubilee officials, Jeremiah Kioni, David Murathe and Kagwe Gichohi.

Awele claimed that he had been given the job by the Jubilee Party, but Njomo argued that he had been instructed to take over.

The tribunal granted a postponement to allow them to resolve the matter, but newly elected party officials opposed it, claiming it was an underhand tactic to delay the matter until after an upcoming meeting.

The PPDT had issued an interim order on February 16, temporarily setting aside the suspension of Kioni and Murathe by the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC).
