On May 2, Nominated Member of Parliament Sabina Chege was appointed as the Jubilee Party’s acting leader, replacing former President Uhuru Kenyatta.
This announcement was made by East African Legislative Assembly MP Kanini Kega, who is allied to President William Ruto and is currently in a contest with Jeremiah Kioni, an ally of Uhuru, for the position of Secretary-General.
Kega confirmed that he is still serving as the Secretary-General, as per the resolutions made in the meeting held by the party officials.
He also questioned Uhuru’s decision to invite suspended party officials to a meeting, which he claimed was not issued by the Secretary-General as required by the party constitution.
Kega accused Uhuru of misconduct and referred his case to the national disciplinary committee for further action.
The new party leadership also suspended the notice issued by Uhuru about an upcoming National Delegates Convention (NDC) meeting on May 22, 2023, and instead resolved to issue a notice convening an NDC pursuant to the resolutions of the National Executive Committee dated February 10, 2023.
