Jubilee Expels Six Indisciplined Nominated Senators


Jubilee Party has expelled six of its nominated Senators over “disciplinary violations”.

The move on Monday followed deliberations by the party’s National Management Committee (CMC) on reports submitted by the  disciplinary committee.

The six are Isaac Mwaura, Millicent Omanga, Mary Seneta, Falhada Dekow, Naomi Waqo and Victor Prengei.

In a statement, Jubilee Secretary-General Raphael Tuju said they appeared before the committee in 2020 and earlier this year on “disciplinary violations as per Article 13 of the party’s constitution”.

Mr Tuju said the NMC relied on Article 7 (2A) of the constitution in taking the action against the senators.

“The expulsions are with immediate effect and have been communicated to the Senate and Registrar of Political Parties,” he said.

“The affected senators are at liberty to exercise their right of appeal.”

Mr Tuju further told the Nation that the NCM, sitting Monday, acted on behalf of the National Executive Committee (NEC) as per the party’s constitution.

The Jubilee constitution states that the “NMC is mandated to act on behalf of the NEC on urgent matters, where in its opinion, the NEC cannot be sufficiently convened to undertake such urgent decisions.”

Ms Omanga, Ms Seneta, Ms Dekow, Ms Waqo and Mr Prengei are accused of skipping the State House Senate Parliamentary Group meeting convened by President Uhuru Kenyatta in May last year.

Mr Mwaura, who faced the disciplinary committee last week, is accused of disloyalty to the party and advocating for the interests of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA), associated with Deputy President William Ruto.
