The Jubilee party has written to the Registrar of political parties and asked her to kick out Sabina Chege and Kanini Kega.
The former ruling party says it decided to terminate the membership of the two after they attempted to oust Uhuru Kenyatta as party leader.
Additionally, Jubilee has said that the two are promoting the ideals of UDA while still being active members of the party.
“This is to notify you that Honourable Kanini Kega has pursuant to Section 14 of the political parties Act No. 1 of 2011 as read together with Article 6 of the Jubilee Party Constitution ceased from being a member of the Jubilee party,” party secretary general Jeremiah Kioni has said in the letter seen bu sauce.co.ke.
“Honourable Kanini Kega has contravened the party’s constitution and code of conduct by purporting to dislodge and/or overthrow the Jubilee Party leader herein being His Excellency Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta without following the due process as established under the Jubilee Constitution,” said Kioni.
The same allegations have also been levelled against Sabina Chege, who on Thursday appointed herself party leader.
“Honourable Sabina Wanjiru Chege has violated the Jubilee Party Constitution by usurping the powers of the National Delegates Conference by creating a non-existing position of the ‘Acting Party Leader’ a preserve of the National Delegates Conference,” said the letter.
Kioni further accused Sabina of misleading the public and the Kenya National Assembly that she was the Acting Party Leader.
Chege has today defended her move to assume leadership of the party saying that it will die if Uhuru continues being party leader.
“The Jubilee Party is owned by its members and its power is exercised by elected leaders. He (Uhuru) currently holds no position in the party. He should concentrate on his international assignments and take a back seat politically like his predecessors as prescribed by law,” she said during an interview on Inooro TV.
According to law, the Nominated MP said, Uhuru should have resigned from active politics six months after President William Ruto was sworn in. She regretted that the former President was now tainting his legacy by choosing “to take to the streets in protests.”
