Former President Uhuru Kenyatta has suffered a major setback after the Registrar of Political Parties, Anne Nderitu, refused to validate revisions made by the Jubilee party NDC on May 22, 2023.
Nderitu stated in a letter to Jubilee party Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni that his office is unable to address the substance of the Jubilee NDC resolutions passed on May 22, 2023.
According to Nderitu, the materials supplied by Kioni’s group lacked a legally signed list of attendees with their identifying Numbers (IDs) to determine the composition of the NDC and quorum in accordance with Jubilee Party (JP) constitution sections 8.1(1) and 23.
Nderitu also stated that the documents offered lacked entire NDC minutes to define the method and mode of election, owing to the fact that just an extract of minutes was submitted.
“As a result of the foregoing, the documents submitted are incomplete,” Nderitu writes in a letter dated May 29.
The NDC decided to dismiss former Kieni MP Kanini Kega, who has taken over as interim Secretary General, as well as MP Sabina Chege and National Treasurer Nelson Dzuya.
Jamleck Kamua, the Director of Elections, was among the new officials appointed.
Pauline Njoroge, a blogger, has been named deputy organizing secretary general.
Maison Leshoomo, a rights activist, was chosen Women’s League national chair, while former Principal Secretary Saitoti Torome was named national chairman to replace Nelson Dzuiya.
Yasin Noor was appointed as the next deputy secretary general, succeeding Joshua Kutuny.
