Jubilee Party commences Azimio Exit process

NAIROBI, Kenya Feb 10 – Jubilee Party has initiated the process of exiting the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya within a period of six months.

In a resolution reached by the party’s top organ, the political party is expected to hold a special delegates convention to ratify the decision.

This will give a nod for the political outfit sign a cooperation working agreement with Kenya Kwanza Alliance.

“The National Executive Committee engages with the ruling coalition on the possibility of creating a working cooperation arrangement with it,” the NEC resolutions stated.

Jubilee was part of the larger Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance that ran against President William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza Alliance in the August 2022 polls.

The simmering battle for the control of Jubilee Party by both Kenya Kwanza Alliance and Azimio La Umoja One Kenya has ensued with the latter allies being suspended from the political outfit.

The party’s national executive committee has suspended Vice Chair David Murathe , the secretary general Jeremiah Kioni and national treasurer Kagwe Gichochi.

The disciplinary cases lodged against them have been forwarded to the Internal Dispute Resolution Mechanism which will precipitate their kicking out of the political outfit in accordance to the party’s constitution.

“That the Internal Dispute Resolution Mechanism be convened immediately to consider the matters of the suspended officials,” the NEC resolved.

Eldas MP Adan Keynan has been appointed as the acting vice chairperson, EALA MP Kanini Kega has been appointed as the acting secretary general and Kitui Women Rep Rachael Nyamai as the national treasurer.

This is pending the outcome of the internal dispute resolution mechanism after hearing the cases against the expunged officials.

This coming days after close to 32 Jubilee MPs have broken ranks with the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya and joined hands with the President William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza Alliance.

This followed a meeting with President Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua at State House Nairobi on Wednesday.

Led by Nominated MP Sabina Chege and Kega the leaders committed to work with the government abandoning the revolution agenda by opposition leader Raila Odinga.

“We don’t want to feel left out in your government so we kindly request you to include us in your development plans,” Chege said.

Eldas MP Adan Keynan asserted that they will join hands to bolster the agenda of President Ruto’s administration.

“We want to be part of this government having been together before the last elections,” Keynan stated.
